Many people consider getting an online degree, but worry that they will have a hard time getting hired after graduation. But, these worries may not be necessary. Online degrees are increasing in popularity and are thought to be more valuable than ever before.
An Online Business Degree vs. a Traditional Business Degree
Many different colleges, universities, and business schools offer student the opportunity to get the same business education online that they would inside a traditional classroom. Often times, the degrees that are rewarded are not even noted as online or on-campus, because they are the same degree.
What Type of Value is Place on an Online Business Degree?
The big question is what type of value is placed on an online business degree? There’s no exact answer to this. Just like with most questions, it depends on whom you ask. However, according to a recent survey by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), more than 70 percent of corporate supervisors rated the value of a distance or online degree as “just as valuable” or “more valuable” than traditional degrees in the same field.
The important thing to remember when getting an online business degree, is that the degree is only as good as the school that it came from. Make sure that you choose a school that is accredited.
