I have learned by working on teams youQuite Bright
I have learned by working on teams you no only receive the academic value from the class but a person also learns about people and their work ethics or lack thereof. A person hones interpersonal relationship skills. It is important in management to know what type of people you would like to hire. This type of learning cuts down on the mistakes one would make in the future.

Question
The teaching faculty is contracted and for theQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
The teaching faculty is contracted and for the most part quality instructors able to share practical current experience. 30% of your grade is based on team projects which inevitibly inflates the grades of the weaker team members with the stronger members bearing the bulk of the work. The grading scale/system seems to weight participation higher than individual academic achievement. The University advertises small class sizes but occasionally crowd classes to increase revenue. The concept of working professionals teaching motivated working students is great, but?. The execution of that concept is poor. The University of Phoenix is a profit oriented machine. If they could do something about the grading system, they would be a wonderful University. Unfortunately, the current grading system is so lax that is lumps C through A students in one big pile by awarding them all "A's" (compared to standards in a traditional four year institution). Solve this problem (difficult because it keeps enrollment high) and you would have a wonderful University than executes all the attributes it advertises. The current program emphasis is "We are a for profit university, pay your money and you will graduate".

Question

Avoid if at all possible - most inept administration ever in Michigan. Only out to get your $. Most instructors good, but reviews of staff are ignored - horrible instructors continue teaching.
