Well-recognized online degrees/certificates?

I work as an engineer and am thinking of doing a management-related course for future prospects in my field. Since I work full-time I can't study for a full-time degree, and there don't seem to be many possibilities of evening/weekend degrees that I know of.

I want to do something online, but most of the things I've come across are either unheard of or lack proper accreditation (or both).

Can anyone recommend well-recognized online degrees or certificates, in management or even in general?

Re: Well-recognized online degrees/certificates?

The only ones that will serve your purpose properly is to do a real one, online versions are easily seen throguh by employers as fake and only done o get letters after your name. The best advice is that if this is actually important then you will find the time no matter how busy you are

You should have a look at what's on offer at the Open University. Courses are open to residents of Switzerland.

I'm doing a degree through the University of London distance learning program. They may have something which you'll find useful.
