What do employers think of online universities?

By | August 23, 2015

I have a full time job, a wife, children and live in the Texas panhandle so my time and options are somewhat limited. I have 3 Associates Degrees and I now feel like I need to further my education. I have researched Embry-Riddle, Phoenix, and Park University. I plan on majoring in Management or Logistics. I would like to know if HR and hiring managers “look down their nose” at online degrees. I am a little leary and don’t want to waste my money on something that will be viewed as worthless.

    they are as worthless as regular degrees just watch the news search the net, degrees are not worth the money you pay for them.

    Hey Shamen –

    Sounds like you have your hands full! It sounds to me like you should indeed pursue a Bachelors degree if you really want to advance in your career, and with your prior commitments, online education seems to be a natural fit.

    Do your research to find the best program for you, but I also want to encourage you that as long as you get your degree from an accredited online college or university, hiring managers will not “look down their nose” as you said. I read something the other day (I honestly forget where) that 91% of hiring managers so they would not see any difference between an on-campus and online degree.

    http://www.ecollegefinder.org offers a number of Management degrees at accredited online colleges and universities. I’d encourage you to check them out.
