I worked at UOP for over 2 years. I took advantage of the tuition
assistance and earned my MBA. The MBA program was time
consuming but not challenging. I had to punch out of 2 classes because of
the faculty but finished the program with a 3.9 GPA. Most of the faculty
were more concerned about assignments be turned it on time and APA format.
I only had a few instructors that were critical about the content of my
work. The work environment at UOP is dysfunctional and the management is
completely incompetent. The attrition rate is very high. A year ago
following awful press releases, UOP transitioned from a sales environment
to a customer service business model. No one talks about number of
enrollments anymore but there is still an underlying force to produce. I
hear and see comments all the time about my degree not being accepted or
recognized. I'm not sure if the rumors are true but it's very pervasive.
It's a headwind you're going to face with a degree from this university.
UOP may have more MBA students enrolled than any other university because
it's cheaper and the numbers aren't even close but it doesn't mean it's a
best school. I still depend on my bachelor degree from another university
and my work experience to get me through. Going back to school is a big
decision and it takes a lot of time and money. Choose wisely and buyer
beware of UOP.
