Q

University of Phoenix

I have been in warehousing and distribution for the past 7 years and I have decided to make a career change. I have decided to obtain my degree through an online institution so that I can continue working in the mean time. I am considering University of Phoenix as the place that I obtain my degree from.

What advice could you offer in regards to their B.S. in Information Technology degree?
Dear Perry:
University of Phoenix offers high-quality, excellent training in most IT subjects. They have had many years of experience in delivering their curriculum, not only at their main campus in Phoenix, but at hundreds of satellite campuses in military bases around the world. Thus, their BS program in IT is well designed and pretty highly regarded. If you can afford this program, it will give you the kind of background that will help you transition into IT. I would also urge you to set up a minimal, two-machine network at home so you can practice the principles you'll be learning and try to integrate an MCSE or CCNA/CCNP into your program of study (these are add-on options to the degree plan from University of Phoenix, in fact).
Good luck with your studies.
