Do Not Waste Your Time At UoP

I found no respect in the business world with a MBA from UoP. Before you earn it you will be required to do more work and pay more in tuition then at other universities for a degree that for me has been worthless. The reasons are many. The caliber of the student body extremely low because of open enrollment anyone can attend UoP, and as you will see, most of them could not get accepted anywhere else, so you will be forced to carry those students through the program in the Learning Team environment. UoP does not employee professors or licensed teachers only facilitators who do no teaching only facilitate the class according to a predetermined curriculum. Everything you learn, you will learn on your own, and those who not want to learn anything and just want a degree, they can get that here, which is why I have found their degrees are not respected in the business community. That has been my experience.

I'll just give 2s all around. I don't know anything about the teachers or materials but if they are anything like the people I talked to at my appointment I cant imagine that there is much quality to be found I those areas. This school is awful! It is a joke! I requested information online and soon after received several phone calls from an enrollment advisor. I finally went to the campus and that's when I saw uop's true colors. First, I was greeted by a person who seemed to have no idea what he was doing. He had a confused look on his face when he asked for my id and gave me a paper to fill out. He told me to sit down and wait for my enrollment advisor and offered me coffee. When I sat down and tried to do the paper he kept talking to me and it was hard to concentrate. He rambled on and I acknowledged him but didn't really know what he was talking about. He mumbled and spoke in jibberish and was hard to understand. He wore clothes that were wrinkled and didn't match. I mean a striped shirt with black pants and red socks! My enrollment advisor was nice, She took me on a tour of the campus and seemed to know a lot about the school. When we sat down to talk, she talked about degree options briefly but talked a lot about financial aid. Went over grant and loan options a lot and I felt uncomfortable at that point. It became all about money at that point. I haven't talked to anyone about financial options since I bought my truck! When she was done I couldn't wait to leave. I kindly thaked her for her time and the sales routine kept going. On my way out the door she handed me some of her business cards and told me that if I knew anyone that may be interested to give them her card and have them call her. As I was walking out the door the person at the front desk asked me if I wanted a coffee to go. I said no and he went on blabbing about how good the coffee was! I kindly said no thanks and left. I drove away laughing! What a joke of a school! What a horrible experience and first impression! I spoke with an enrollment advisor who reminded me of a used car salesman and a receptionist who was ghastly and appalling to look at! I am a working mother of 3 with a Bachelors Degree and 10 years experience in management which includes 4 years in upper level management.Instinct told me to leave the place when I saw thr receptionist but I stayed and now consider it a mistake! This "school" if you can even call it that, is a company! A for profit corporate organization that cares about money and only money! Lucky for me there is another school here that has a great MBA program. I will be going there instead.

Money Grubbers, poor education

This Company, ah I mean school, just wants one thing - Money. So the Apollo Group share holders will make money. Education is secondary. UOP doesn't even have their AACSB accreditation, so my MBA is worthless. I wasted my money, my time, my life. Zero job placement. No wonder they're under investigation. Hopefully they don't pay off too many congressmen with their lobbyists to fight off the investigation. Slimy. Stay away.
