Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

An online program is a practical way of getting a graduate program finished when one has responsibilities as work and family; time is a valuable resource that must be managed carefully, even more when living in a big city where distances, transportation (traffic) and weather issues are daily concerns. I am half way through my Graduate program and I feel professionally capable of taking over new endeavors, even more because I'm taking a program in a second language (First language: Spanish). University of Phoenix works constantly on making sure the software is up to date and running at all times for the convenience of all students. I'm very glad I chose UOP as the university to do my Masters degree.

I really enjoy the discussions, they are very indepth and it's great to read about fellow classmates thoughts and opinions. The work load is not a lot, it can be for those who are not organized. I don't have any cons of the graduate program. So far I'm really enjoying all my classes and learning material.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Current instructor is good at providing challenging discussion and clarifying misunderstandings with the learning. Instructor provides additional resources. Fast pace of the class is beneficial, and I am able to balance work and school. Even though I am not yet interested in becoming a CPA, the CPA review as part of the required assignments has been extremely helpful in increasing my learning. Cons: Learning team assignments are overrated. I do not think they are as helpful as intended. Since the university program is designed for working adults, as a working adult, I have more than enough experience working in teams or groups and do not need to do this for learning. Some of the assignments lack further structure and direction, and the instructor can deduct points for things that are not part of the required assignment. Textbook could be better compared to other classes I have had.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros of UofP are that it is convenient for me. I can learn at home or where ever I travel to. The classes were only 5 weeks long so it was challenging and forced me to challenge myself and learn quickly. Another pro is that the students are assigned to learning teams for every class. This helps because some assignments are divided up in the learning team. Cons of the program are that it is expensive and if you don't have enough financial aid to cover than one must pay for the course before the next course starts (5 weeks), otherwise you cannot start the next course. It is also difficult at times because you do not have the luxury to ask an instructor a question and receive an answer right away as you would in a classroom setting.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2011

My previous graduate school experience was in the classroom while now I am entirely online. I do not feel that I am missing any interactions thanks to the team projects. I do feel the work load at this University is more challenging than at my last, but I welcome the challenge because I am here to learn.

So far my experience has been great. As a working adult and mother it has been easier to do my work online than going to a classroom. I appreciate the support that they have provided me.
