If I have an Ivy League Degree in Business, can I then say to all, that what I say on the topic makes me superior to all that do not have that degree?

It tells me your knowledge may be superior to mine because you studied the subject. May be superior. Not automatically is.

If I have an degree in neurosurgery from an Ivy League school can I say my knowledge in neurosurgery is superior to an art major, yes. Neurosurgery is not something you learn "on the job".
Business, marketing, insurance, etc., you can learn these on the job and have an equal if not superior grasp of the subject than the person who graduated from an Ivy League school.

Unless you got your degree from podunk online school of thought, a degree is a degree to me.

Logical fallacy, is an argument from authority.

Not. A degree adds credibility, not infallibility.

No because you may have a degree and have book knowledge but it pales in comparison to someone actually in the shit, day to day.
