If the University of phoenix is accredited, it should be good to go.

Thats just the beginning of the story. Check the wikipedia.

The University of Phoenix (UPX) is a private for-profit institution of higher learning.
For profit schools are interested in making money, not teaching students.

'[Its] business degree is an M.B.A. Lite,' said Henry M. Levin, a professor of higher education at Teachers College at Columbia University. “I’ve looked at [its] course materials. It’s a very low level of instruction.”
How long did it take to get this "MBA" and how much did you pay?


That's what it is, its not a real University, it only does online stuff.
Some real universities physical ones where people actually go to them offer online off campus types of degrees.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 988584

The University of Phoenix does have actual campuses- and not just in Phoenix. There is one in St. Louis MO. Don't they work with you to find a job after graduation? I would contact the Univ. and have them deal with the bitch who laughed at you.

Forgot to add - not that you should need to be told: call up the Equal Opportunity Commission today. They have lawyers on staff; it won't cost you a dime. That's what they're there for. Make the retard who insulted you pay with real money.

Unfortunately there is still the stigma attached to online education. People are use to seeing their advertisements of 'the easy way to get a career' along with dental assisting and massage therapy during shows like Jerry Springer.

got my MaEd from UoP. Took me 53 weeks (just over a year) pushing 2-3 classes at a time. Work was as comprehensive as what I have seen friends in the field have to do from traditional universities. The format of the classes was unique and in the end (though I hated it at times during the program) was an additional asset for the program.

Only ever had one person ever make a derisive comment to my face. They were eating their words shortly thereafter. I've known many people who started the program and who never completed it.

Ended up with a 3.98 GPA. (of course with 8 years of experience in the field before getting my MaEd I wasn't exactly a novice)

Do you really need the answer to this question? U of P is a joke as far as academic rigor is concerned. Same with other similar institutions such as Strayer.


You didn't even take the GMAT to be admitted to that program... all they want is 2.5 or 2.75 GPA and sustainable work experience. Which means the clown who manages the night shift at BK would qualify under this work requirement.


Shaq and Lisa Leslie both hold MBA's from U of P. Yes, the same Shaq who, when playing in Greece was asked by a reporter if he'd seen the Parthenon yet. His reply? "I can't remember all the names of the nightclubs we went to." That Shaq.



That should tell you everything you need to know about the worth of a University of Phoenix MBA degree.

Wtf it looks real to me.

The University of Phoenix (UPX) is a private for-profit institution of higher learning. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Apollo Group Inc. which is publicly traded on NASDAQ (APOL) an S&P 500 corporation based in Phoenix, Arizona.

As the university with the largest student body in North America, it has a current enrollment of 420,700 undergraduate students and 78,000 graduate students,or 224,880 full-time equivalent students.

The university has more than 200 campuses worldwide and confers degrees in over 100 degree programs at the associate's, bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.

That is probably one of the problems. A typical MBA will take anywhere from 3 to 5 years to complete. It is pretty much impossible to actually earn that type of degree in one year. If you went to a brick and mortar school it would be impossible to get a MBA in one year.
 Quoting: NewBeginnings



I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you have no business background and you certainly are not an MBA student, nor have you done any research on programs.


The typical full time program takes 2 years to complete. Some programs are able to be finished in 18 months. In Europe, it can be less. For instance Oxford offers a full time MBA programme (their spelling) that a candidate can completed in 1 year.

I spent one year working on my doctorate through UOPx. It was around that time I realized all these lessons were being taught by myself, and they were not any more difficult than high school English. Complete waste of time unless you get your employer to pay.

Sure.... it is a 'for profit school so it is interested in making money, not educating dolts'.

But your local State University and the Catholic University down the road and the local baptist college... those schools care nothing about money. That's why they say: "Come to our University. You don't have to pay a dime until you graduate and get a really good job, then you can pay us back when you have lots of money. Because we care about YOU, not the check you or your daddy sends us each month!"
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef:

"The goyim were born only to serve us Jews. Without that, they have no place in the world - only to serve the people of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi (a lord or master) and eat.

That is why gentiles were created”

A college degree only shows an employer one thing.....that you can put up with years of B.S. and bureaucracy, and hardship to accomplish something. That is the ONLY thing a degree proves.

With an online degree...it doesn't prove that so much.

I know people who have many degrees, but are dumb as dirt. The interviewer should have asked you more in depth questions to see what you know. A piece of paper is not certainty someone can Di the job. Any good manager knows that. Skills are knowledge, attitude, skills, and habits...ie, KASH....cash.

Be glad you did not get hired at this company. They don't sound like they have very savy people working there. You can always say on an interview that you realize that your on-line schooling is a different method of obtaining a degree, but you learned the info required to do the job description/expectations. Ask a mentor about it or Google on how best to say this and when. This is a common occurrence. Always take that opportunity to turn a 'perceived weakness' into a strength. The University if Phoenix is a respected school. All colleges are for profit. Not to worry. The right job will come along for you.

It is an accredited university so your degree is the real deal. I work for the State of NC and we recognize degress from the UofP.

Go to this site and print out the accreditation and take it along with your degree, then see who laughs.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 717575

The courses are not the same. People with college degrees are flooding the job market because of "cheap" and online colleges. I understand, and commend your quest for higher education, but the University of Phoenix was not the way to go about it. If you wanted to start your own business and took their business classes to understand the inner workings of a small business...great. See, the person interviewing you had a degree from a college with a campus. This might sound funny but its the truth. They see it as the easy way to get your degree...and it is. I'm sorry you wasted your money and I know how bad it sucks. If you want them to take you seriously, take that degree and apply to a big 10 university and see what happens. Good luck to you.

It isn't the country's fault. You were taken in by a sales job. The school is owned and run by a former union hack and communist John Sperling who could barely read coming out of high school. His motives are purely mercenary -- enriching himself.

Sorry, but you have no one to blame but yourself. Caveat emptor. (Let the buyer beware.)
