Online Learning Myths Dispelled

1. Online degrees don't carry the same respect

The bottom line is employers value online degrees every bit as much as a degrees earned in a traditional setting. In fact, many business leaders believe that individuals who pursue additional education or degrees while effectively balancing job and family responsibilities showcase the intangible qualities they look for in leaders.

Pursuing a degree online is just as rigorous as doing so in an in-person classroom environment. Online courses have assignment deadlines, mandatory participation requirements and require the same time commitment.
