Answer by Derek
Regardless of how long it takes , I have to advise you that it will probably be unwise. As a former job recruiter I can say that we would never accept the University of Phoenix as a valid college for our hiring. The U.S. Department of Education has been highly critical of this school, and for-profit schools in general. As if that weren’t bad enough, online programs have gained a reputation for being fraudulent with reports of people hiring others to take an online course for them. Thus an online “degree is achieved by an imposter and the person listed as a student did nothing to earn the so called degree. You would be wise to look elsewhere for your degree. a brick and mortar college offering the classroom experience. This means more personal education as well as more socialization The degree from a brick and mortar college that’s not a for-profit college will serve you much better in the job market as well.

    Why would you want to take a worthless Accounting degree from University of Phoenix? The school is not AACSB-accredited in Accounting.

    Employers have been known to toss all job applications listing a UoPhoenix degree, directly into the trash.

    I suggest you investigate this first: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos001.htm

    and this: http://www.aicpa.org/Pages/Default.aspx

    I would suggest investigating–through your state’s regulatory agency for accountants–whether or not the University of Phoenix program is accredited to allow you to be licensed/certified/etc. as an accountant. It would really s*ck to shell out thousands of dollars only to find your bachelors has a built in limitation to what you can earn with it.

    I also suggest exploring your local community college to take your lower division, introductory classes for transfer to a 4 year university to offset some of the UofP costs if you decide to stick with UofP.

    Good luck.

    Please do not go there. They will give a diploma to anyone. Most employers and universities does not recognize them. Please click on these links and read their former students review of the school.
