"The pursued degree program would be no other than the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at University of Phoenix (Charlotte, NC) campus. This program is very intense, thought provoking, inspires growth and very effective! The intensity of six week classes is underrated. Having to study, read and complete assignments are part of school life, but as a working adult it can be a bit strenuous. The lessons learned, by way of each professor are generally all relatable and are brought into "real life" form. Text book learning is a short piece of the learning process but the class discussions make everything clear and understandable. Being able to utilize life lessons and course material in the work place is the concept received from University of Phoenix. - Charlotte, NC Campus. This program consists of multiple courses making up 36 credit hours; to include but not limited to organizational leadership, marketing, corporate finance, and more. As a military veteran I can certainly say it has been an honor to follow my dream of holding a MBA degree from such a undoubtedly amazing university. I will be crossing the stage Oct 23rd of this year and that feeling of accomplishment will forever hold. Overall, the MBA program and University of Phoenix are above and beyond one's expectation."

"I completed my MBA with the University of Phoenix at one of their field locations. I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of the program, the knowledge and background of the faculty, and the interactions with the other students. Our class sizes were small, allowing for relationships to form quickly and for individual attention from the instructors. I rated the social life low, because the nature of the program is for working adults and therefore there isn't a lot of campus interaction outside of the classroom and group work. The workload was rigorous, but prepared me for future careers in management and business."

"I'm a single parent of two daughters, so being able to pursue a master's degree while working was a blessing. I was still able to spend quality time with my girls, work to provide enough for my family, and due to the way grad school was setup, higher education was really achievable. I was really intimidated by the MBA program since more of my educational background was in health science and the fact that I didn't take my undergrad too seriously resulting in a really low gpa. I was accepted in the MBA program under provisional status for my first four courses. From the beginning, I had bad studying and writing habits and never took a business course during college. My friend worked for UoP and she reminded me that I'm a sharp person and I am a person worthy of a graduate degree. With motivation I started taking grad school seriously and I did this by participating in workshops such as Microsoft Office and APA formatting. These resources and consistent support from faculty and staff made achieving an MBA achievable. There was a lot of reading and tons of papers to write, which is expected from any grad course. The diverse faculty along with their huge array of experiences kept class interesting because they lived through what they were teaching to us. All of my instructors were working FT in their prospective fields One con that is probably likely every where are the groups. Some people have been in the same cohort and work together for so long that it's tough to penetrate their circle. Sometimes you can make a group and will work very well together. In general, working with people will always be a challenging and hopefully grow you. This "con" is more a of a realization that we will always work with someone, and sometimes someone we don't like. But that's okay because that's what makes life interesting, our meaningful interactions with others."

"The pros of this program are that you get a quality education with instructors who have "real world" experience and have done the job that you want to get. One con would be that there are no internships available for you to put the skills that you learn to practical use, before applying for and getting that job after you earn your degree."

"Completing the MBA at the University of Phoenix was a rewarding experience. I was challenged with writing well, making presentations, and collaborating in a team to complete assignments. Which provided me skills and techniques I could use in my job the next day. The instructors added to the learning experience by taking the topics from class and demonstrating how they are used in various industries. The readings were current and provided examples that helped make the content interesting and exciting. Our class was 23 adult learners, mostly working adults that participated in discussions and had an unique and diverse backgrounds. We all were ready to work and be active participants. The school is highly dependent on technology as we retrieved all assignments and turned them in through our student website. All readings are electronic and the school provides many resources to assist with writing and research. The career services are great, the website also has tools to improve resume and interview skills, job research and applying from jobs all from one site. The academic counseling is very proactive and the financial advisors made sure I borrowed only what I needed and was set up for repaying my student loan. The surrounding area is close to the highway, has security guards for safety, and has onsite dinner options during the late night classes. Reading your materials is the key to high grades and keeping on track with discussions. My overall experience was great and this degree has helped me to pursue teaching at the University level."

"I learned a lot from the program. The math portion was very challenging but with the in class set-up i was able to ask my teachers for help & classmates. Without their help i would not have passed. I am still in the military so as of now i cannot say whether it has helped my career."

"The MBA graduate program at the University of Phoenix is laying a foundation of knowledge that I will be able to use when I pursue my career endeavors after graduation. One pro of this program is the experience collaborating in a group setting. One con is the length of each individual class with the amount of information that needs to be passed in a classroom setting."

"The Master of Business Administration program at the University of Phoenix consists of 12 courses which focus on key areas of managing and running a business. Courses are complete one at a time for six weeks which provides ample time to learn the topics. The instructors work in the area they facilitate, and provide real world experience from their work experience. The concepts can be applied to your job the next day, and the readings are up to date and easy to follow. Examples of how the concepts are used at many U.S corporations is also discussed. Each course consists of writing papers, working in teams, and individual or group presentations. The program's format provides vital experience relative to today's work environment and managing others. The student website has many resources for writing papers and completing assignments. The site also has a social media portal to share feedback and communicate with other students and faculty. The Career Services features are great, with easy to use tools to assist with resume building, interviewing, and searching for jobs. University of Phoenix provides resources for scholarships, writing and math tutors, and workshops on hot topics in the industry they teach. My experience and opinion of the University was great, and I feel prepared for growth and professional development throughout my career."

"University of Phoenix is a great way to get a graduate level degree while working full-time. You will learn and there are a lot of resources available to students who want to learn, but if you are getting a degree because you want to be extremely well-educated or you have a hard time teaching yourself concepts, I would choose another school."

"University of Phoenix is a great institution for full-time working adults as myself. UoP is affordable and classes move quickly. Instructors are top notch and always available. I have made many friends and created many business contacts with other students in my class...as they are full-time working adults as well. For me, this is working out quite well."
