Description: This is a passage about umuc login. As a global leader in research, entrepreneurship and innovation, the University of Maryland College Park is home to more than 40,000 students, 10,000 faculty and staff and 352,000 alumni all dedicated to the pursuit of Fearless Ideas.
This question comes from somebody, somebody did not give me their name, what do you think of UMUC Tech degrees like information systems management? In the University of Maryland University College it is a local program.
It’s mostly an online school, I do something local, let’s do some in-person stuff, an online college program has been that way for a long time, it was one of the first real online programs out there, one of my thoughts on UMUC comes down to what you’re doing in life.
As I talked about before I dislike a lot of the online education programs especially for newbies, they’re not necessarily so bad for people that are already in the profession and simply need a piece of paper, first to get out of the way you see a good program.
I have talked with employers, I have talked with hiring people, they say that UMUC as a good program, that’s the answer, UMUC as a college program is considered good, I’ve talked with employers, they all say that it’s a good program.
The issue that I have with any of these online education programs is if you are a noob, I would say to stay away from them, the reason is that they always talk about the college experience, they used to talk about the college experience, you go to college.
One of the reasons you go to college was the degree, but the other reason was for the college experience, I would argue that college experience is valuable thing. being in class with 30 other students who are interested in the material and being able to talk with them is valuable.
Being able to get internships is valuable, being face to face with professors is valuable, the indoctrination into becoming a technology professional is valuable, so the problem that I see is that a lot of people don’t get the fact that technology isn’t a bubble unto itself.
It doesn’t seem that you learn technology and it is valuable, you have to learn how technology works within an organization and how you deploy, maintain, build technology to bring the most value to an organization, in order to understand the organization you have to understand employees, you have to understand people, you have to have communication skills, you have to be able to do all of these other things that don’t necessarily have a thing to do with Active Directory or routing a remote access services.
By going to school in that classroom environment, it’s a much better thing for you especially with newbies because the big problem that I see with newbies is that they come out with their certification, they come out with their degree and they don’t understand that it’s a step on the process.
They think that they got their piece of paper, they will get a job, then they go out in the real world, since they don’t know who to talk to, they don’t know how to communicate and they haven’t done it at all, then nobody hires them, then that piece of paper literally becomes as worthless as a piece of paper.
That would be my long-winded thought with UMUC, if you’re in the military and you’re bouncing around, if you’re deployed to Afghanistan, that’s great, if you are a regional support engineer like I used to be and you’re bouncing around, you don’t even know what state you’re going to be sleeping in tonight, it’s great.
If you’re a normal person, you’ve got a normal schedule, I would highly recommend that you go to a normal college, the overall experience will be much better for you, the thing you have to realize is the whole issue with discipline, I talk about a lot of people that try these online programs, their discipline is crap.
I don’t know what it is, if you have to go to class and you have to deal with a professor, a lot of people are more likely to get the work done, if the professor looks them in the eye and asks where their homework is, people don’t like to be an idiot, so they do their homework.
Whereas you do the online thing, you never get around to doing it, I’m a little shaky, a lot of the online programs are for a lot of people, when you look at UMUC if you look at any of these programs, remember whether or not the program is good, UMUC the program itself thumbs up, but are you going to complete it? Is it going to get you to where you want to be at the end of the day?
That is what I would have to say, it is the big question mark, as I would say all the time unless you have a real absolute need to do an online program, I would highly recommend that you go to an in-person program.
