What Do Employers Think Of Online Degrees?
Employers are much readier to accept online degrees than they used to be. In fact, there is usually nothing on a diploma to indicate that it was earned online and most of the time employers accept degrees from properly accredited schools in the same way that they accept traditional degrees. Employers will be more cautious of degrees earned through non-accredited schools. So it is really the standing of the school that interests employers, rather than whether a course was online or offline.
In some fields, Information Technology for example, online learning may well be seen as an advantage. If your online degree is likely to be an issue at a job interview, make sure you take with you all the information you need to support and validate your learning method and school. Taking an online degree requires self-discipline, and that in itself is a quality worth emphasizing to a potential employer.
