"My school is quite amazing because of what the staff/professors are teaching. They apply with the fact they work in the same field they teach. You get a one on one experience with most teachers which helps with pushing you toward success and graduation. When you collaborate with a teacher that their occupation is the exact thing they are teaching you to get so much more. You get the foundation of current data from the field which receiving anything outdated information from traditional colleges I feel like sometimes can be negative. One other huge aspect I love about University of Phoenix is that you can access any book from any course even if you have not enrolled into that course."

"Attending University of Phoenix has been a really good experience for me, it can be taxing at times but at the end of the day/evening it is worth the time an effort of being there. Four hours once a week to me is a blessing because in those four hours I have the professor and classmates attention whether it is a one on one or group effort of understanding the lesson. Everybody is close net and it is "A one for all-all for one" learning environment, we are there for each other, I feel that I have been blessed with the classmates cause we are all on the same graduating schedule. I would recommend UOP if you are trying to get your degree just know and understand that this learning experience can be quite rigorous but once it's all said and done, there is a proud feeling of accomplishment."

"As an alumni, at University of Phoenix, current MFT Program, I have soared! Being a first generational graduate of my family, I shared that my greatest potential and future is because of this school. Enduring challenges, UOP staff and students encouraged me to discover my identity that I though was to hard to find. If your looking for a great school that encourages culture, education, and reaching for the stars! Than University of Phoenix is for you!"

"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 was very pleased with my UofP experience. The program is extremely in depth and requires potential project professionals to develop projects from start to finish. Further the classes leading up to it provide the necessary understanding to understand and interpret analytical and anecdotal data. The team environment is also very important as in the business world we must work together, and projects and companies will succeed, or fail, together. While many do not like team constructs, it has an extremely important place in learning as we learn to work with diverse and distant team members for a common goal. Online education is not for everyone, however UofP was very helpful in allowing me as a father and full time worker to obtain my Associates, Bachelors, and now my MBA on my time and in my home. The work was challenging and not for those that are not motivated to do this. There is not an instructor in your face to keep you motivated - you must do it yourself. For the right person, this is a great opportunity."

"The educational experience at University of Phoenix was excellent. I received my BSB/M in 2004, and the degree has opened many doors to employment that would not have been available to me otherwise. The program I attended was on campus. My instructors all had extensive experience in the field in which they were teaching. I loved working in teams with others in my cohort. I learned as much from my fellow teammates as I did from the instructors. The weekly in class presentations helped me work through my fear of public speaking, which has helped me at work as well as in every day life. I truly cannot say enough how grateful I am for my experience at UoPHX."

"The instruction I received at U of P not only prepared me for a career as a counselor, it resulted in life-long friendships with my fellow students and professors. The faculty genuinely cared about my development and success and I look back on those few years of my masters program with fondness."

"While a majority of my classes were on-ground, their flexibility of offering online was helpful as I traveled the country. This program is great for professionals with atypical student curriculum needs. I would recommend their program to other students seeking a degree while working as a business professional."

"My experience at The University of Phoenix continues to be an ongoing one that's been absolutely satisfying. I have been supported with staff and academic counselors who displayed deep gratitude for the students they serve. I've experienced follow-up calls regarding work life balance, and more progress towards my course of achievements. I've always been provided with the needed resources to advance in my course of work and was extended support when challenges were faced. I can honestly say, I've been so privileged to have chosen this university. I was welcomed as part of the family."

"As a 45 year, old returning to school, I was very nervous. I had been working as a professional for twenty years and had reached the limit of career progression. My experience was excellent; however, my lack of a graduate degree limiting. I researched local traditional Universities, but after looking at my finances I decided I would need to continue working while attending school. A friend suggested I explore University of Phoenix. I did. I discovered the program I was interested in had a preprogram which evaluated graduate level skills. My first day I was anxious. Upon entering the classroom, I found other people who had also worked in professional venues for years. Often we use our education to help us understand our daily employment responsibilities and challenges. The experience they brought was so different than what I would have had in a traditional University. I have found my professors extremely knowledgeable and approachable. They also have been working in the field for years. I love they are working professionals and the wealth of stories they bring to the classroom prepares me for my future endeavors. My undergraduate degree was before the time of computer based education. University of Phoenix is wonderful in bringing students up to date in an educational computer based program. The program materials are challenging, but provides multiple insights in topics and opinions. I appreciate all the wrap around services the school provides to assist my success. It is invaluable to edit my papers on line and use grammar check. The online library provides thousands of resources for papers and independent studying. I would encourage everyone to check out University of Phoenix, regardless of age or station in life. I am currently half through a master degree in mental health counseling. My academic and financial aid counselors are amazing. They are always available and whenever I have had questions, they have immediately contacted me. University of Phoenix has provided what I need to advance my education, career, and life. The welcoming academic environment has hooked me into succeeding in my classes. The curriculum builds on itself. It is easy to look through each class and mark my learning, and how this weaves into my current class. At times it is overwhelming to finish papers and presentations. However, there is ample support with instructors, support staff and class members. My cohort is small, but diverse. The team projects have taught us to compromise, educate and support each other. For me, the program as fit perfectly into my full time work. I have learned to balance my personal, employment and educational pursuits. As a 23 year old I was not ready for graduate school, but I began when it was right for me. The University of Phoenix has provided me with the opportunity, and for a working professional it is an amazing fit."

"I really enjoy going to university of phoenix. The atmosphere is very friendly and inviting. In the master's program it is group work oriented, allowing you to learn to work with others through the good the bad and the ugly. I also like how the teachers encourage students to interact with each other and talk about their experiences and how they feel about the topic being discussed."

"I had a positive experience with UOP. I went to a campus located in Santa Theresa NM (not sure if it is still around). The Professors were knowledgeable and the environment was always positive. I did pay a pretty penny for it though which is really the only bad thing I have to say about it. I have not had any issues getting jobs nor have I had anyone give me crap about my degree and its authenticity. I have not tried to go back to school to further my education so not sure if those credits would transfer over. I this point in my career (I am in management now) I don't see myself going back to school so whether they transfer or not it really doesn't effect me right now."
