    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 football players quit regular college early to join the draft, play 4 years or so, then Walden welcomes them with open arms(as long as they have any money left).

    To true. Those who can reason, are able to understand that the Great Recession came gradually, and the recovery will continue slowly. That is, if the Republicans don’t kill the recovery – their apparent intent.
