Kevin Ryan, M.A., Transportation and Logistics Management
Kevin Ryan needed a more competitive edge in his career as a pilot in a shrinking job market. He loved his experience as a Boeing 737-800 Captain with ATA Airlines, but when the company went under Kevin transitioned over to the Department of Defense to work as a Management Analyst with a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) subordinate unit. When his wife's military transfer forced him to move, Kevin had to use his skill sets to acquire a new job. He believes that the combination of his Master's degree from the University and his military experience made him competitive enough to be selected from among 100 other candidates for a position with the US Army Manpower Analysis Agency (USAMAA). Still, his goal was to get back into the cockpit and he concurrently pursued a career with Atlas Air Cargo. Hired by Atlas in April 2010 as a First Officer in the Boeing 747-400, Kevin credits the University with giving him a competitive advantage in the hiring process. “I can't help but think that my M.A. had a hand in getting me back into the cockpit, as well,” says Ryan, “I'm back in aviation and working towards my goal of aviation/airline leadership.”
