Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2010
"I received two degrees from UOP. I sorry to say but my life went downhill after I completed my DBA. There are very few organizations that acknowledge the school. My pastor mentioned that the school lost it's accreditation. I'm unemployed at the moment and only mention my BS degree used by Cleveland State University. My many years working at the city of Cleveland didn't pay off because six months after I 'paid' for my DBA I got laid off. Took a position at minimum wage for one year. Seven months later promoted to VIP Host and was very unhappy because management there didn't want to promote me and hired a person that they ended up terminating. They made a bad choice. I've interviewed for a management position at a company that is willing to take my word for it. They are concerned about my DBA and asked if I plan to stay with their organization. Loyalty is what I possess. I plan to retire from the organization if hired."

"I was nearing retirement, however the company I worked for paid my full tuition. Since I retired early, and was too young to sit around, I entered the world of independent consulting. My experience at UP helped me to be successful. I cant tell you that I no problems with any of the instructors or the way that UP operates. I took several difficult classes including statistics - and I can tell you, it is like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it. I studied hard, did my assignments and participated in classroom discussions. As a result, I gained knowledge that will help me in my "retirement career." Again my experience was very positive."

"I am a recent graduate of the UoP's MBA program. I understand that everyone has their right to their opinion but I have nothing but good things to say about UoP. I was offered a full ride scholarship through B and G of America. This was a great opportunity because I was thinking about going back to school but thought I just didn't have time. I went did both ground and online classes. The instructors for both were some of the best I have had. Most had their Ph.D with a ton of experience to go along with their degrees. Most also taught at local universities and had nothing but good things to say about UoP and their curriculum. I have a degree from a traditional university and I would say UoP's classes were just as hard if not harder. My boss has stated to me that my growth is noticeable and commended me on going back to school and getting my degree. I would say that no matter where you go to school it is up to you to research if classes are going to transfer (most university only take up to a certain about of transfer credits anyway), what amount of financial aid is available (there is no grant money for Master degrees it is all student loans), and instructor information. It is up to you to be responsible for your own education in every aspect. If you know you don't want to get in debt behind school apply for scholarships. I don't agree with the reviews on this website. I feel the responsibility of your education is on you and what you do with it after you receive it is also up to you. No one is going to give you a job in this economy based solely on where you receive your degree. You have to sell yourself and be confident of who you are."
