Are Online Degrees good for hire?
I asked a business owner about this…and his reply was:
“Yeah, by all the other suckers who paid their money to get a quick and easy degree for little or no effort. But, if you came to my office to apply for a job with one of those “degrees”, I’d call the janitor to sweep you and you useless paper work OUT of my building. God Bless you”….
what do you think??
Online, onground, hybrid format degrees are all equally acceptable.
We strive to protect our organization from unaccredited credentials such as Kennedy Western, Almeda, Rochville, etc.
That being said, the degree gets you considered, but your skills and experience get you hired.
However, the ‘distance learning’ programs at colleges and universities which have a campus and student body, with full accreditation, are not the same at all. Some may require physical attendance for a portion of your credits while others can be earned online. Either way, you would still have earned a bachelor’s from the University of X, and it has the same worth whether you did all of it in person or online.
I have already sent an answer for this Qn. But, after reading the other answers I find people profusely use the terms such as accredited,recognised, regionally approved,affiliated,MOU with US universities etc vaguely misguiding readers to join such commercial ventures. Would such advocates send their wards to these schools!. These days even a tutorial institute has a website with tall claims such as offering courses for 30 years, registered as a educational society with the local government. approved by … Govt..etc.,
I can list many but can’t name them here to avoid litigations.
I may suggest one simple test to identify fake commercial institutes/universities.Check their faculty list,
…mostly it will be missing. They may display an advisory committee consisting of many doctorates in other renouned universities around the globe. Innocent or more correctly ignorant professors lend their names for misuse by such bogus institutes. I would suggest that answerers should restrict to answering Questions on truely known area only.
I will admit my bias as a professor at a traditional school, but I can’t see how an on-line degree parallels the learning experience you receive otherwise.
The business owner you talked to may be speaking out of ignorance.
