Please Help: Are Online Degrees Valued?
I am not talking about for-profit universities with no physical campus (though I am certain there are good one). I am talking about universities that offer a traditional path of gaining a degree (classroom-based) that also offer online degrees.
I am interested in applying to a few programs, but I am extremely hesitant. I was looking at Rutgers and Syracuse for a MS in accounting degree. Both universities seem well respected, but the whole online degree stigma still hits me. Their programs waive the GMAT which makes me nervous; reason being is because they both require it for degree programs that are taught in the classroom.
Even Harvard has heightened acceptance rates (from what I've read in articles) for their online programs. Does this mean they are not as good?
I feel like the "higher acceptance rate" is strictly because the online programs receive less applicants, but still....
