Question by Ben: Is a degree from University of Phoenix less valuable then a degree from a different school?
I am a year away from a degree from UOPX and I am wondering if it will count for much in today’s job market?
Answer by Thinking About Things
Like most good answers … it depends!
If you are looking for work in a field that is looking for general knowledge (say, communications, or journalism), then any degree has value … it shows commitment and a basic education.
If you are looking for work in a specific job market, competing with other graduates with degrees, it will be a competitive disadvantage.
If you are looking for further education, it may be acceptable, but not as valuable.
There are actually very few jobs that care about where you got your degree.
