Generally it is not respected although Phoenix, and others, certainly want you to believe it is. On the other hand,, an on-line degree is better than none at all. You might look into evening “Capstone” programs, offered by many colleges, which cater to working business people. They often provide credit for experience and schedule classes that work well for full time workers.
