Foreign universities and Switzerland

First of all, I don't know where to post this but it seems relevant here:

I am currently a working adult and have been looking into getting a degree in accounting online as I am in a rural area and can't commute easily or cheaply. Switzerland does not seem to have very developed online courses and so I have taken a look at a few French ones (I live in the French speaking part of Switzerland).

Does anyone have any stories about getting degrees recognized in Switzerland? I already have one, and the general plot is that Swiss employers will take you without official Swiss recognition if you do your part of the homework and figure out how things are done in Switzerland.

I'd like to get a degree in the French language to further integrate, but would be open to an English degree from the UK as a second choice (University of London or Open University for example). Are degrees, certificates and the like easily recognized in Switzerland or is it a long painful process?

My number one choice would of course get a French language accounting degree online from a Swiss University but have not found one yet.

Any leads at all would be a great help.
