Go to a real school!

Go to a real school?

That is an interesting comment. Unless you actually have attended there, you have little, if anything to say about it.

I, on the other hand, have something to say in response-based on information.

I graduated with honors from University of Illinois and am about to graduate from Univ. of Phoenix with my MBA. I have a 3.94 GPA there to date with only 4 courses left. The curriculum at UOP is phenomenal. My professors are actually working professionals-most with their PhD's in their field. They actually can translate the relevance of our class topics/concepts to real-world APPLICATION. Therein lies a key difference. The professor's go out of their way to be available, even at home, when a student needs help. I never experienced that before-anywhere.

I agree. UOP is an excellent school. It has pretty great standards, they take learning very seriously. I am proud to be graduating soon!!! And no other school has the student discounts that UOP has.

I am proud to have earned my MBA from UOP, this achievement not only increased my salary by 33% but also gave me the skills and knowledge to enter any arena of challenges.

I did however, graduated with a B.A. from San Francisco State University and when I entered the real-working world, all that I have acquired from SFSU did not help me in any way other than knowing how to fill out the job application, yes these are factuals from a real individual.

I thank UOP very much for what I have gained, the education correlated to the actual real-world.

Enough said, thank you UOP very much.

I am currently attending UOP and I absolutely love it!!! Thanks so much for all of your positive comments and squashing the negative ones with the facts! I also agree that the material and the professors are phenomenal! After I complete my Bachelors program I plan to obtain my MBA. I am proud to be a student of UOP.

I don't know who said, "Go to a Real School," but I say to you,"I bet you can't do it!" I have been attending for over 3 years now and it is every bit as challenging and time consuming as the classroom environment. I have a nursing degree that I obtained in the classroom. I have worked even harder on my education and learned more in the way of societal discipline and the meaning of self-discipline in my on-line experience with University of Phoenix. Thank you University of Phoenix for giving me the opportunity I need for success.

I am a current student of UOP online. I am very pleased with the classes and the work. The classes are very in depth and the work is NOT easy. I looked long and hard at every online degree program I could find but kept coming back to UOP, they are there to help you every step of the way and you have your own personal support team, such as councelors and advisors. I would HIGHLY reccommend this school. Not only is it Nationally accredited but they are #2 on the list of the best online schools to attend. That is my opinion. I wish you well.

I looked at several traditional MBA programs and discovered the UOP had the best overall curricullum. I learned an awful lot from UOP. The professor were great. They were mostly PhD's. This is no fly by night school. The school you attend does not make you an MBA...it's the skills you possess is what makes you an MBA.
