The University of Phoenix is a degree mill. I've spoken with ten professional recruiters and asked them the question "Does where a person gets a degree matter on the resume of a potential employee at your company." The response 70% of the time is, "No, unless they went to a lower standard college like University of Phoenix (where anybody can go, even if they are a drug addict or felony rapist). I usually toss those resumes in the garbage and send the candidate a letter." If one is honest with themself (and not just looking to try and get a useless sheet of paper because their boss tells them they need it to advance in the company), they know that the University of Phoenix is not a respected institution in the college/business world. Ofcourse, this would beg the question of "well then why do companies pay tuition reimbursement to go there?"… and anyone with half a brain can tell you the answer to this question: Because UOP recruiters have convinced your company that your degree from UOP will make you a better employee at the company YOU are currently with… the trick is trying to use your UOP degree to get hired by a different company in a different area of expertise.. NOT likely to happen. In other words, the money your company is paying to put you through the UOP is money well spent on themselves, and they get to write it off in taxes too! If you are an older person looking to make a career change, and want some advise on where to start, do NOT start at the University of Phoenix (even though they beg you to at every visited webpage).. trust me, you'll regret it. Oh, by the way, I am a current student at UOP, but will be transferring to a more respected institution in the fall of 2004. two years of the joke is long enough.
