Are these degrees accredited (do employers value online degrees)?

Are these degrees accredited (do employers value online degrees)?
Accreditation is one of the most important things one should have in mind when choosing an online degree program. Degrees from the collages which are not accredited are usually nothing but a piece of paper without any value.
The simple answer would be: Yes!
All the online degree programs at the DegreesBoard website are from accredited higher education institutions and therefore they are valued by employers in the same way as the traditional (campus) degrees from those colleges/universities. Please pay attention that every page about a college/university at our website has the information about the accreditation of that institution. This information is essential when you look for some degree program since if the institution which provides that program is not accredited, than your degree will not be valued highly by prospective employers.                          
If the institution is not accredited, your degree will not be valued highly by employers.

But, beware of the other answer: No!
Many "online degrees" which are advertised on the Internet are not accredited and the employers look at these as just pieces of paper which have no value. There are a lot of diploma mills out there and be aware when you choose an online degree program, because you can easily be wasting your time, money and effort.

No accreditation = waste of your time, money and effort.

We at DegreesBoard website do not provide information on this kind of "online degrees". Please note that some of these diploma mills use unapproved organizations as their "accrediting agencies" so that they would look legitimate - but they are not and their certificates are practically worthless.
