    By “challenging” he of course means p*obl*m*tic, the word, that dare not speak its name in management circles. Any time now they’re going to have to come up with a new word for “challenging”. “Differently parametered”, perhaps.

    substitute America for Walden U and presto. the 1% know how to “sell” us out. fascinating how easy Americans are to pay for their own scamming. lol. such idiots. Marketing is such a Rigth wing scam. lol too bad American didn’t listen to Dwight Eisenhower.

    as they say, “only in America” Business before People.
    the American Way. got to love the suckers who buy this BS. like Zipper. and the Great American Fascist/Capitalistic State we are now.

    Not really. The model they’re looking at is University of Phoenix or DeVry. I don’t follow sports, but I’m pretty sure there aren’t any big-name for-profits in NCAA or other sports organizations.

    masterskrain, U of F looks at return on investment and time has proven that American industry view CS skills as a commodity. While CS jobs may occasionally be high paying, the longevity of the higher paying slots is relatively short. This is disastrous on the economic well being of the CS grads, and totally destroys any ability to return $$ to their Alma Mater. U of F understands these facts.

    “I just remember thinking how stupid it was to hear about the University of Florida cutting an entire branch of Computer Sciences, and closing the lab to save $1.75 Million a year, but at the same time raising the Athletics Department Budget $2 Million a year!”
    University of Florida is public, not for profit university. GT is talking about Walden becoming a “for profit” school … more like DeVry, ITT or the University of Phoenix

    The depressing part is that the real thing is happening all over. And it doesn’t do as well either. So you don’t even get better educated people coming out of it.

    Our economy has been shrinking and curling toes up since 2001. Those old fangle ideas of Herbert Hoover that a certain segment of our population loves for its means of extracting wealth from the working class and shift it to the already wealthy at the expense of the economy.

    Many of the well paying jobs are gone either for good or over seas where they pay magnitudes less than here.

    Substitute Plutocrats for Republicans and I would agree. Stuck in partisanship will leave you half blind.
