It is possible to get many college degrees online, including a bachelor's degree or a master's degree in business administration, and degrees in such areas as finance, human resources and marketing. Online enrollment in higher education is actually increasing at a faster rate than traditional higher education institutions. These online programs are part of for-profit institutions.
The one controversial aspect of higher education online is whether or not it actually leads to employment opportunities. Human resources executives at many Fortune 500 companies disagree on whether or not they would hire someone with an online degree. This is largely due to concerns about how students are assessed and graded. However, more companies are increasingly accepting online degree applicants.
