This University is a diploma mill. If you want an MBA program that teaches you skills you should already know, like how to do an Internet search, then this is the place for you. In the MBA program I took we spent 3 credits (and about $1000) learning useless things in a class called Ergonomics. If you want an easy 'A' all you have to do is show up and turn in the assignments. The quality of work doesn't matter so much. Most classroom sessions are spent going around the room describing what it's like to work where you work at. I'm not sure this qualifies as graduate level instruction, but at UOP it does. The teachers, I mean "facilitators" are OK. Any monkey can do their job, they just follow a syllabus and lead a classroom discussion where you learn from your peers… although I never could figure out how listening to fellow students talk about their place of work taught me anything except how they did things at their company. I even had one instructor start the class by saying "I don't know why they asked me to teach this class." If you need financial aid be very careful. This company does NOT return phone calls and you can never talk to someone in charge who can do anything for you if there is a problem. They have such high turn over in financial aid, admissions, and counselors that no one ever really knows what they are doing. When you talk to UOP, just ask the people how long they've been there. And don't be pressured to sign up before you're ready. There are classes starting all the time, but they will say there's a class starting next week, hurry up let's get you in that one. They don't tell you that they always have classes starting so there is no rush.

They have no admissions standards except being able to write a check. So even though some decent people might go there, you also get a lot of complete idiots. Idiots that you'll get stuck with on your study teams and you'll have to probably end up doing their share of the work. And then when you're done and graduating, these idiots will be standing next to you getting their degree. How is that going to make you feel about your degree knowing that a complete moron skated though and got the same degree as you?

And the alumni network? I've greaduated and haven't heard anything from them. There is no real alumni network, and there is no job placement.
