Primary problem with most online/part-time program is that they are products derived from existing on-campus programs and are considered more "convenient" and hence, do not generate enough interest in the industry. I believe that candidate should evaluate the rigour of any part-time/online program before joining it.

Other important factor is lesser skin in the game in part-time programs. Full time program requires you to leave your job and pay a hefty program fee but it's easy to write off your investment in part-time/online program. Hence, student motivation is comparatively lower in a part-time program. As a student, you need to be more self-motivated to get most out of a part-time program.
