Do any of you currently or did enroll in Kaplan University Online?

I am interested in getting a BA degree in Human Resources Management, and I am strictly looking at Online Schools. Is Kaplan a good choice?

    I'm thinking that UoP is probably the best known of the online only schools but I don't know that I believe that they have the best reputation.

    Be sure that you look beyond the online only schools, they're good for some people but there are other options out there and most with a solid educational reputation.

    Consider:

    Central Michigan

    Indiana State

    Southern New Hampshire

    U Arkansas

    U Maryland

    as just a couple options for online HR study at major state schools.

    Consider too whether you want an undergrad in HRM or if you'd be better off with a bachelor's in business and a master's in HR or an MBA. The bachelor's in business will open HR doors and many more but an HR bachelor's will restrict you generally to HR.

    Yes, I am currently enrolled. I've been enrolled since last March, and I have to say that out of all of them, I love Kaplan the most. The instructors are very good and laid back, but the work is still challenging. In my opinion, an online degree should be more credible than an the traditional because they make the work harder. Anyway, they have help in just about every course you can name and the atmosphere is very laid back. I feel that I made the right choice and I am getting the best education.

    It's a very new school, so even though the quality of education may be good, it doesn't have an established reputation yet so your employer might look at your degree questionably.

    Among online schools, I think University of Phoenix has the best reputation.

    Boston Univ. has a really good program if you already have some college credits and it's a well known school: http://www.degreecompletion.info/default.asp
