In 1976, Dr. John Sperling, a Cambridge-educated economist, saw an opportunity: to create an accredited academic institution that accommodates the lives of busy working adults. Today, University of Phoenix is the largest private University in North America, offering over 20 undergraduate and graduate degree programs — online and locations nationwide.
University of Phoenix is a pioneer of many innovations that serve working students today, including:
Our curriculum focuses on academic and practical development across our five universal teaching platforms:
University of Phoenix provides access to higher education opportunities that enable students to develop knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their professional goals, improve the performance of their organizations, and provide leadership and service to their communities.
Become part of the team that makes University of Phoenix possible.
We provide employees with a positive working environment, a competitive benefits package and the opportunity to contribute to accessible higher education.
It takes a variety of specialists to operate, maintain and innovate everything from information technology to curriculum development for the nation’s largest private university. Software engineers, student services coordinators, marketing professionals and business analysts are all necessary.
Our faculty members must meet rigorous standards. A master’s-level degree or higher is required in addition to practical experience as a working professional in order to teach with us.
In addition to teaching positions, we also employ faculty development administrators, campus college chairs and college deans. And to meet the needs of our students, we employ academic, financial and enrollment representatives, and much more.
I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (More than a year)
Great management, strong team values. Moving forward despite government intervention on for profit schools. Student centered, however employees are highly valued and appreciation is demonstrated.
Up in the air at this time, layoffs.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2013.
Submitted a resume and then they called me in. Met with head of legal and other attorneys. It was a pretty nice experience actually. Of course they did not mention how at that time their computer system was completely out of date and they did not have any history of what went on if a state outside of a paper library that was deficient and missing information. So if a lawyer left who was covering regulatory compliance in a state, you had no idea what was going on in that state.
