Golden, D. (2009) For-profit colleges target the military Businessweek, December 30

Although ostensibly about the marketing of online courses to the military this article provides useful general information about for-profit vs public online degrees, for example:

Holders of master’s degrees in business administration from for-profits Phoenix and American InterContinental University earn less than grads with the same degrees from the University of Oklahoma or Maryland’s University College

On the other hand:

students who worked full-time while earning master’s degrees at Phoenix in 2008 received an average annual salary increase of 9.7%.

For students wondering about whether to enroll in a for-profit online program, this is a useful article.
