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.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the graduate program is that it is very convenient. There is no need to take the GRE, and the admissions requirements are not excessive. The cons include difficulty communicating with classmate.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The purpose of obtaining a master's degree is to receive advancement within my current company, to give me more career options, and to complete a career change. The con with graduate schools is you can only receive student loan to finance your schooling.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I have had a great experience with the University of phoenix. They have a strong support system for students who are in need of help whether its through financial aide services, counseling, tutoring, or technical support. One area that I am not the most fond of is the huge focus on learning teams. I think its important to have the social interaction of working with other however I don't think it needs to be apart of every course.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy University of Phoenix. They have been very friendly and have worked with me whenever I needed them. The only real issue I have the the support faculty is with contacting them. The school has changed its process so that when I call, I speak to the next available representative, not to my advisor. It can be frustrating. The most difficult part with the online classes is lack of lecture or instructor interaction with the students. There have been times where the class has been told to google something that was not in the book and the instructor did not take the time to teach. It can seem, at times, that we are teaching ourselves. I think that, for this reason, people do not see the value in a degree with UPOX. I have put so much time and effort into the programs I have completed with UPOX so it can be frustrating when people laugh about my degrees. As far as the other students, UPOX has put some new technology to use and I have been able to see the diversity of the people I am interacting with from all over the world. It is awesome to be a part of so many people continuing their education in efforts to make their lives better. It's awesome to see.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

You are given, as a student, the material needed to receive a good education. The amount of information in the database library is amazing, real-time tutors, workshops, and tutorials on the recent technology used today are just some examples what the library contains. The lower marks of the survey is because with an online college, the student is sitting at home. Transportation to and from class is obsolete, and because there is no campus for the student, the rating of safety is exempt as well.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

University of Phoenix would be much better if it didn't cost so much, there was an alternative to the dissertation in the doctorate program, and they gave more financial support.
