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
Paid time off to volunteer twice a year; generous tuition assistance/discount program; no micromanagement (at least at my school); great collaboration.
Really none, but my layoff was completely unanticipated.
Advice to Management
Need to keep more underlings and fewer analysts. Nothing to analyze or no product without producers.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ).
Applied and got called by a recruiter about a week or so later saying that the hiring manager would like me to come in for an interview. I met with one of the HR staff and he led me to the interview room where there was another interviewer. They asked me a few questions here and there and we chatted about the company, the position, and the university’s current marketing team. It was very relaxed and laid back.
