According to a 2019 study conducted at Northeastern University in the U.S., 83% of business executives considered an online degree from a well-known institution to have the same value as its equivalent on-campus degree. The same study found that respect for online degrees has been increasing dramatically over the last decade. The reputation of the institution is generally more important than whether the degree is obtained online. The COVID pandemic has erased any remaining stigma that online education may have had in the past.

Geography and Environmental Science (R16) - BSc (Hons) at The Open University received the highest rating among all graduates in the National Student Survey year with a rating of 90 out of 100 among 135 respondents.
