The MBA in Human Resources CAN be quite useful. The most important courses for me were those unrelated to HR, so that meeting with clients and targets I can now read their annual reports with some understanding, discuss their marketing and improve my own, and financially/ statistically analyze my past projects to direct my new ones.

The HR courses generally repeat knowledge that you should have obtained when achieving professional HR accreditations, especially the CCP and SHRM (can't speak for Benefits, a chronic career weakness)certifications.

I recommend arguing the order which UOP wants you to take the courses, and see if you can obtain the Operations Management course early in the program - and Accounting, Finance and Marketing as soon thereafter as possible. The knowledge you gain in these courses will put the knowledge in the HR, Statistics and other courses in proper perspective.

One other recommendation: READ THE TEXTS, you might be able to float through the coursework by reading the lectures and only some of the assignments, but then why are you in a program where it is your reputation, not the school's, which will sustain you?

Finally, do a great job in school and build up UOP's reputation - you are benefiting everyone who attends and has attended. All the hours put in by single parents, working marrieds and their sacrifices are made more worthwhile by the small amount of extra effort to perform well.
