A search on Google will help. Simply type in Masters degree in Nondestructive Testing

One of the URLs is https://www.findamasters.com/masters-degrees/?Keywords=ndt

Many engineering faculties include NDT as part of the curriculum but not all have a dedicated NDT programme. You will also have to decide the sort of applications you want to address. Mechanical (metals) will not necessarily have the same topics covered as civil engineering.

From my own experience i would recommend not to do my studies to special. Of course you my seek for a degree in NDT, but finally it would block maybe sometimes your career.
Why?
NDT is a specialist field, so get stuck in the field of NDT.
If you have a more general engineering degree, you are open to a lot of jobs and careers in industry. So if you are studying production engineering, you fit much better in industrial career profiles. Or a little closer to NDT: material sciences.
NDT is normally something for Physicists, especially if you prefer not to do "stupid" reproductive Quality Control organisation and Statistics but work in developing top technology. There you have to apply state of the art physics, maybe also electronics, program coding, mathematics. For all this being a physicist is (from my own experience) perfect, as he is a generalist.

And being a generalist is also perfect to step into an industrial career. The same is of course if you are a general mechanical engineer and not already to specific trained on a narrow expert field.

Having got an academic education shall make you fit to step into all possible field of expertise. But should not become too specific in your education, as change is a key for your future.

Especially NDT depends very much on the field of application. So even if you have a master in NDT, you are not fit. Remember: you need a training in real industriell NDT to get the License of a level I, Level II or even a Level III. Check NAS410/EN4179 e.g. for hours of experience you need to get a certain license. same for the other industries. You university cannot give you the necessary experience. As it is no industry!

My own experience is also: Universities are nice playgrounds for NDT but far away from industrial reality. I had a lot of R&D Projects, where we also co-worked with Universities and Institutes, but it was always hard to make them aware of industrial reality. Just aerospace is a nice example: Non of those academic experts have ever made a real NDT inspection on a real aircraft. Yes - they had maybe put a Ultrasound transducer on a wing, but they had never to decide if an aircraft has to stay AOG (aircraft on groud) or can be released to carry once more passengers. It is a difference to play with samples or to do an inspection on a large structure and afterwards to decide about the life of hundreds of passengers.

So - as you need the industrial training even if you have got a BSC or MSc in NDT, you see that's not worth much. I would look for a more general education and than do the training on the job. Finally applying for a job does not depend on your academic degree but your personal performance and agility to step into new fields.

I do not think there is a MBA course focused on dealing with the NDT Industry, which is by itself a very small (but significant) industrial sector.

As for MSc. studies, I'd suggest you look for a degree that allows you to understand the basics of NDT techniques and most importantly, how they relate to industrial applications.

I am currently studying my MSc.(Structural Integrity) in Brunel University London. The programme is delivered at TWI Cambridge, which is known for their knowledge and research in this field. So far I've liked how the programme addresses the integration of NDT for other applications, such as Condition Monitoring, Code Application and Plant Inspection. I would suggest you to give the website a look.

In India, NIT Trichy has MTech in NDT. In USA, Iowa State University has great NDT Program.
