I am just about ready to finish my MBA. I attended George Mason University for my undergrad, and attended American University for about 6 graduate credits. I can honestly say UOP is a decent school when talking about its academics. The graduate MBA courses cover the exact same stuff the "traditional schools" cover. The teachers are good, I never had a bad teacher out of my 12 courses!! I think they challenged us quite a bit, with lots of homework and writing! There were a lot of papers due for each course. If you dont like writing your in the wrong field!! The problem with the school is the length of the courses. They are generally 6-8 weeks in class, and then your resposible for the outside readings and Team oriented home work outside of class (which is an incredible real life Learning experience) which makes up the difference. The problem is that you cant teach finance and accounting in that short of a time frame…Yes we did go over some great situations in those areas of study, but it just felt like we needed to do a little bit more…UOP is very close to being a QUALITY QUALITY academic school. I think if they just input some form of entry requirement and increase the length of course time, say maybe 8-10 weeks, over time the schools reputation will start to thrive!! I met some really cool people from the governement sector to the private sector and they were all so bright and full of energy!! This will be a great school someday…right now its really good, but someday it will be great!!
