"I only took one course in their masters level program and it was nowhere near master's level academic quality. Many in the class could barely write in complete sentences or handle APA formatting. In group projects I wound up pulling all the weight because of the poor quality and caliber of academics other students in the class were operating in. I stopped and went and found a real masters program at another institution that was up to appropriate academic standards. It might be ok as a vocational type school or a networking opportunity but if you was a real grad school level academic education look elsewhere. If I'm going to invest 10s of thousands and years into a supposed Masters degree, I want it to be a Masters degree not a masquerade as one. Fortunately I realized this very soon in and was able to start again at another school. Pheonix was a valuable education in the power of good advertising and what I didn't want in a degree program. It might be fine for others depending on your goals but if you want an actual academic degree with credibility in the academic world, this is not likely a place you want to choose."

"I am 50% through a Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership/Information Systems and Technology. I have an undergraduate degree in environmental science, a master of sciences in information management, and a master of business administration, all from traditional schools. The negatives about UoP regarding loose admissions policies are true...this is a for-profit school. This aspect of the program is one I'd change, but that's not very likely as long as their business model continues to drive revenue. The classes have been very informative, and I've learned a great deal in each. As a professional taught doctorate, similar to a Ed.D., PsyD. or a DBA, the DM program has a strong research/dissertation component, but is heavily practically based, and prepares the learners to leverage their doctoral knowledge in the course of their professional careers, not as tenure-track professors at a research university. I find that the entire experience has been similar to that of a traditional school, in that some students work harder than others, and you certainly can get by with a low to mid "B" with a reasonable amount of effort. Putting in a greater degree of effort, and producing a higher-quality result yields the high B or A grade, and requires quite a bit more dedication and care than a low B. You really do get out of it what you put into it. The dissertation part of the program is the real equalizer. The process (which I've only just begun) is rigorous in its somewhat bureaucratic nature, as well as in the way it sets students a bit adrift if they're not 100% committed to attainment. Based upon other students' stories, it's a journey of perseverance and diligence combined with a scholarly endeavor. The instructors have been what you'd expect at most schools...some great, most OK, some not so good. No instructor has ever been an impediment to my success, however...and in most cases they've been helpful in guiding the way. It's absolutely necessary to have good time management skills, and the ability to adapt as the program progresses. Again...perseverance... I can't comment on the AA or BA/BS, MA/MS/MBA programs. In the doctoral space, I think the education is solid, and appears to be on-par with other professional taught doctorates of which I'm aware. For those seeking a degree from a highly-acclaimed school, such as an Ivy or other top-rated institution, this certainly is not the place for you. However, I think those that attend UoP for a doctorate who have the drive to succeed, will do well with the knowledge and skills they acquire."

"I had graduated from UoP in 2012 with a Master of Management degree. This was after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from UoP as well. Overall impression of the instruction is an average one at best. UoP touts their instructors as having real world experience which they do and some instructors are actually there to instruct. For the most part, many are facilitators who leave it to the students to learn what they want to learn and skip what they want to skip. This may or may not get you a good grade in a class but that is what the level of expectation is. I knew going into UoP what the school was about. You get out of it what you put in and I planned to put in a lot of work. However, I saw many students struggling with the curricula and pace of coursework. Know what you are getting into before signing up. I am happy with my degrees and know what it took to get them. I had been honorably discharged from the Marine Corps after almost 10 years and began working full time when I started at UoP. Online schools for working adults are no joke. They are time consuming, challenging and can be very rewarding. I have recommended UoP to people in the past and have two siblings who are/have attended. The Bachelors degree I had earned helped me in my career. At this time I do not believe the Masters degree has helped. I think it is more of experience playing a role in my professional development and progression more so than level of education. In saying that, it surely does not hurt."
