Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

There is the flexibility of the online program but the drawback is the face to face communication.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I consider the University of Phoenix's MBA program highly valuable. As with any full-time MBA preparation is essential. Concerning a fast-track and or online program, preparation is absolutely essential. The University of Phoenix MBA program provides critical skills that are valuable to any organization in the current, fast-paced market. The online program was especially valuable in that you are learning essential business skills whilst staying connected to your support structure (i.e., family, friends, peers, employers and the like). Alternatively, there are various, technical aspects that would likely be considered antiquated; however, these are outside the scope of this rating.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of attending an online program are that students can attend class around their busy work and home schedules. I work full time and have 3 teenage girls, so attending class in person was not an option for me. Online, I can log on and participate at any time and turn in assignments as my schedule allows. The cons to attending school online is you don't get the face to face interaction with your professors and classmates. Also, you have to be extremely organized and manage your time wisely. It is easy to become distracted with other tasks while attending online school.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The cons of my graduate program is the workload. Given I am a full time student as well as an employee and mother, it is difficult at times to joggle it all. However, I am no stranger to taking challenges and I look forward to overcoming this one. The pros of my graduate program include: the knowledge I am gaining while attending University of Phoenix MHA online. I truly enjoy the learning environment and cannot wait to practice my knowledge in real life experiences.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I completed my under grad through University of Phoenix. I really enjoyed the resources and support that Up provided, so much so that 2.5 years after graduating with my Bachelor's in Psychology I have enrolled in the Masters of Public Administration program.
