My experience at the UoP-MBA/ACC program was excellent, and I would compare the experience with any program anywhere. UoP offers several advantages. Most of the students in my program had real-world experience, so there was an incredible amount of information-sharing and processing. The technology is wonderful - the entire library is online. And the curriculum design has only one purpose - to prepare you for making real-world decisions in your chosen field. We glazed over theory in discussions, but we were expected to read, research, and chew on theory in the assigned readings out of class. The use of recent and relevant case-studies for benchmarking is, in my opinion, the best way to learn. Alyce Groggs, my advisor, checked in often, and was very encouraging and supportive. I can't say enough about the experience. Others who write negative remarks probably didn't "take ownership" of the experience. K.L. 2010

1- make sure you have a natural bent for online learning, it is not a good fit for many people.
2- Don't make the mistake of thinking the school/class is easy simply because it is online.
3- Go into the process with your eyes open.4- Price schools, and verify that they are accredited in the FIELD you want to go into.

UOP is all about the money and care less about your education. Research them or better yet, go to a job fair and bring up UOP. Im sure you will get educated about them fairly quickly. If your in the school now, and need out. Cancel everything from your loans, let them know in writing you are no longer a student. You can google how to get out of UOP and there are several websites that can provide the details to do it. Good luck!
