The Value of An Online Degree

Found this interesting article by Karen Schweitzer from…

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.

Horizons University, offers high quality, online (or on campus) degrees.  Our online programs are one of the most flexible programs available.  And yes… we are accredited!   We are accredited by ECBE (European Council for Business Education)… Additionally, we are a candidate for ACBSP (Acceditation Council for Business Schools and Programs).

ECBE Budapest by Roberta Grossi, Founder HU

Budapest – May 27-29
 Accreditation for Horizons University
Roberta Grossi and Virpi de Oliveira attended the annual ECBE (European
Council for Business Education) conference where they received the
official accreditation for the BBA, MBA and DBA programs. The ceremony
took place at the Academy of the Arts and Sciences in central Budapest
after a pleasant boat trip on the Danube.
The weekend was filled with meetings and social gatherings and it was a
great opportunity to establish new potential partnerships. A few
well-established universities demonstrated interest in our innovative and
practical programs and, as a consequence, Horizons University is working
on the creation of new joint degree programs with American and
International universities.
Roberta Grossi also presented a paper on Virtual Mobility, sharing with
other members its experience in distance learning and new technology.
Starting this Fall, new online seminars will become available on our
Second Life 3D virtual campus.
At the end of June, Horizons University will also be present in
Indianapolis to receive the official candidacy status from ACBSP, the
Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, a CHEA recognized
Horizons University is now listed under the accredited institutions in the
ECBE website:
And as candidate for accreditation in the ACBSP website:
