John Sperling, PhD, a Cambridge-educated economist and professor-turned-entrepreneur, founded University of Phoenix in 1976. He made a commitment to provide working adults with higher education at times convenient to them. Today, our students study online, as well as at locations nationwide, with availability in countries around the world. Not only do students attend classes that are convenient, they earn degrees that are built for the careers they want. Our commitment extends to our higher education innovations as well. University of Phoenix helped pioneer many of the conveniences that students now enjoy — evening classes, flexible scheduling, a university-wide academic social network, an immersive online classroom and an online library. In addition, the University has 20 years of experience in online education — a kind of education that’s research-proven to be just as effective as conventional instruction. Our faculty members have both real-world and academic experience. This means students can use what they learn in class the very next day they’re at work. And we offer degree programs at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels — to give students choices and room to grow.
