some people just need a paper MBA for career progression. most of the times, the companies pay for the online courses. It wouldnt suit u and I, but it does work for others.

one of my formers managers has an mba from university of phoenix. for him, it was just a merit badge he needed to earn before he could get that next promotion, so he chose the path of least resistance.

but most companies wont pay for online schools too, at least not for those without national accreditation. After all, u can hire someone to complete this program for you online!

Funny article on how Intel dropped University of Phoenix from its list of schools for reimbursement.

http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2 ... oenix.html


Funniest quotes:

1) its stock price has tumbled amid revelations about its low graduation rate -- 16 percent, among the nation's lowest -- and concerns that its largely part time faculty is delivering less than a first-rate education.
2) "I attended University of Phoenix for five classes. I have found that they literally give A's away,"
3) "I enrolled thinking UOP would be a great fit for my lifestyle. After enrolling I started my first class. This was a waste of time. The 'teacher' was awful. ... I wanted my degree very badly so I decided to give the school one more chance. My second class was just as bad. The teacher was better, but the problem is I learned nothing. My book was never used and I still got an A."
