I have attended UOP for the last two years and it has changed my life. Many improvements can be made but overall I am happy with what has transpired thus far. If one wants a true quality education, enroll in a community college then transfer to a brick and mortar school like UCLA or something like that. If you want to achieve something in your life and want to be able to hold a degree up, attend a for profit. Adult learners have too much on their plate and the for profit, one day a week, online schools offer more options.
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
This is a school that separates the men from the boys. No sissy's allowed. If you will not follow instructions, manage your own time, and learn the concepts on your own then this school is not for you. Just like at any university, for every 1 hour you spend in class you need to reserve 3 hours out of class. You should know the material before you go to class at a ground campus anyway. The classroom lecture is only for clarification not to be spoon fed material.
