Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

I pursued a Masters in Information Systems at the University of Phoenix and was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. As of right now, I do not have any cons what so ever.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros in regard of my graduate program is the ability to work a full time job and go attend school. The instructors are fully knowledgeable and very understanding. The cons in regard of my graduate program is that sometimes classes can be repetitive and you never know when someone drops out of class.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the pros of attending the University of Phoenix are that you do not fill overwhelmed. This is because you only take one class at a time that is only six weeks. One of the cons is that many of the classes require you do a group project. Having to trust others with your grade can become stressful.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

The pros of graduate program is that it widens your scholarly knowledge and equips you to become a better leadership in a workplace. The cons is that you are over qualified for entry level jobs even when you are willing to do the job. hence you dont get hired.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2020

As a full-time professional, full-time mother and wife, and a full-time graduate student, I am extremely thankful that I found an online MBA program that fits my needs. I needed an expedited admissions process, and what's faster than beginning classes two weeks after submitting my application? Cons? Well, the university focuses on team efforts to prepare you for team projects in the professional workplace. So far, I don't have a nightmare story to tell; however, it can be stressful. It is difficult to work ahead when your teammates are not working at your pace. I have learned to be patient and trusting in others.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The courses are accelerated, and it is a balance of work/life/school, with all of the impediments that accompany such a life. Otherwise, I am continually amazed at how well the curriculum flows from one class and builds upon the next class, as well as how the courses are pertinent to the field and life as a businessperson.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that the program overall was created to provide a learning experience beneficial to future accounting professionals. But in some ways, I feel that there should be a little more hands on analytical work in comparison to the theory based assignments that are given.
