Institutions like Duke, MIT and Stanford now offer online programs, and many employers are holding some of these degrees in the same regard as they might from a 4-year institution.¬†Some working professionals find it more convenient to pursue online degrees while balancing a career and family, and are also enrolling in a growing array of online graduate programs.¬†While online programs now offer a high level of credibility with employers, students still must evaluate the programs carefully. The FTC warns consumers at its website about signs a school might be a “diploma mill.” Some of these warning signs include advertising a flat fee for the degree, a short completion time, pushy advertising tactics and accreditations from phony agencies.
