Mission Forsaken: The University of Phoenix Affair with Wall Street

Who has read John D. Murphy’s new book “The University of Phoenix: Mission Forsaken”? A review of the book appeared on Yahoo Finance. Below is an excerpt from that article. To read the full article visit: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/mission-forsaken-university-phoenix-affair-130000625.html According to the Yahoo article the book is “Dedicated to the ‘hundreds of thousands of University of Phoenix working adult graduates who have been subjected to the scandal-ridden decline in the well-earned reputation and standing of their alma mater, . . . " “Mission Forsaken reads like a novel as it lays out a visionary educational utopia now threatened with the dystopian possibility of loss of accreditation.” . . . . “As he (John D. Murphy) outlines in the book, the University of Phoenix went astray when it eliminated admissions standards with the stated goal of fulfilling its founding mission: solely serving working adult learners. With the elimination of entry standards, a new generation of University of Phoenix attendees now depend almost exclusively upon taxpayer-funded student loans and grants from other governmental sources. When the University of Phoenix went public, 80 percent of its working adult students had some or all of their tuition unwritten by their employers.” . . . “ Between 1999 and 2013, the University of Phoenix and Apollo Group paid for or are liable for $242 million in regulatory fines and whistleblower judgments."

Didn't the regulation changes name it illegal to push numbers on employees?

I thought they were supposed to stop pushing numbers on employees but they definitely haven't. They still fire people for not meeting their numbers. They label it differently than before but nothing has changed as far as production numbers, retention numbers, and referral numbers those are all heavily pushed. This company is so shady! I'm sure the D.O.E has no idea! They probably fluff up their reporting the way they fluff up their default rates. If you think their default rate is bad, you should see the real numbers before they fluff them up for the D.O.E

All the same.

I went to ASU and all I learned how to do was binge drink, do coke and slay azz! Now tell me that is a well rounded education. Any company you work for is going to teach you what they want you to do. You put in the time at school and you get a piece of paper that proves you attempted to better yourself. This in turn allows you the opportunity to interview for jobs. Regardless of what anyone says or thinks, the school is accredited. When you are flipping through the job sites and notice about 95% of any of the descent paying jobs require a bachelors degree just to apply, that so called worthless piece of paper suddenly becomes the golden Willy Wonka ticket; now doesn't it? A degree is merely a stepping stone and that is it. You can go to any school and if you invest your time in a degree which has no value such as psychology or liberal arts, you are going to struggle getting a job anywhere.

Question for past and current employees of Apollo Education Group????

It is very unfortunate that a mega corporation like Apollo has such poor leaders who fail to communicate their goals and strategy directly to the front line associates. As result, they put more and more employees and their families at risk. Sad, but true. The question is "Do you think working Apollo Education Group either presently or in the past is valuable to you personally or for your resume?

UOP degrees

We use LinkedIn at work on our sales team to find decision makers at large companies. If we see a degree from uop we don't bother and try to find someone else. Nobody with a uop degree would be trusted with important decisions.

Directors and Managers Get Kickbacks Through Stock

According to one poster who still works for the university of phoenix, campus directors, finance directors, and managers get kickbacks and bonuses through stocks that are given to them at the end of the year based on their enrollment and retention performance. Isn't that compensation based on enrollment which is illegal?

The finance advisors are trained to withhold as much of your money as possible. They sit on your funds to make interest off the money which

should be going back to you. They will tell to 30 to 60 days and keep changing the dates. They get bonuses the longer they are able to feed you this bs. Never ever listen to these scamsters. Only deal with directors or ODM. Insist on speaking with either one. They will try to keep this info secret as all of them try to protect one another. Do not deal with finance managers as they are the kings and queens of lying. Basically the best scamster finance advisors who were promoted to finance managers. They will not return your calls and will literally laugh at you as they are figuring out their next bonus check at your expense.

For profit schools are unscrupulous scumbags

A network of U.S. marketing companies run glossy websites promising jobs, health benefits, food stamps, and heating assistance -- sites with names like localemploymentnetwork.org or medicaidinsurancebenefits.com. But according to former employees of a company connected to these operations, the real purpose of these sites is a classic bait-and-switch: to get low-income people, single mothers, veterans, and unemployed older people on the telephone and push them into high-cost for-profit college programs. Based on the accounts of these employees, and documents they have provided to Republic Report, the operations may well be in violation of federal statutes prohibiting deceptive marketing and unwanted telephone sales calls, as well as Department of Education laws and regulations barring payment of sales commissions to college recruiters. At the very least, they are guilty of using sleazy tactics to sell poor-quality products. The for-profit college companies that have obtained leads on prospective students from these questionable operations include many of the biggest industry players: the University of Phoenix, Education Management Corp., Corinthian Colleges, ITT Tech, Kaplan, Career Education Corp., Bridgepoint, and Stevens-Henager -- all of which are currently under investigation by federal and / or state law enforcement for their own alleged internal fraudulent activities.

They are all the same. It is the student and what they put into it, not just the institution. Many college grads can't find jobs

The middle class in america is gone because all the middle class jobs are gone too. Keep buying your Toyota's and all your other imports - what you get is a job at 7/11 or some other retail store. Also, what most people do not realize is that ALL colleges/universities have a profit motive. The only real difference between the nonprofit and for-profit sectors is that one pays taxes back into the community, while the other does not. For-profit universities also have to be accountable for how they spend their money; while public universities collect taxpayer dollars and spend them however they like- with zero accountability. E. Gordon Gee, the President of NON-PROFIT Ohio State University made $6 million in 2013. Too bad these ultra-liberal Gainful Employment regulations don't focus on non-profits as well. Too bad those regulations are just political. And too bad the liberal media believes more in advocacy journalism than writing a fair and balanced story for once.

Stay Away From University of Phoenix

Stay away from University of Phoenix. I don't know what scam they're running on federal financial aid and veterans' benefits but something is up with this "school." I'm almost two weeks into my third course and they still have not processed my paperwork. They keep making up a reason why they can't process my benefits. Each time there is a different reason. The problem is there is a clause in your enrollment application that says if University of Phoenix can't secure the funds from the government, the student is responsible for payment. There is a scam they are running somewhere I just don't know what it is. University of Phoenix is a Scam.
