Agreed, not sure how anyone would know the difference unless they point-blank asked you.
Where you go depends on what you want out of it. There are certain fields that I probably wouldn't consider doing it (those that are overly 'status' conscious).
The one thing that you don't get by going on-line is the contacts that you make in person. If that's your ballgame, go in person, otherwise I'd get it online.
Based on my discussions with 5-6 MBA grads of UD and Wright State, I did every bit as much work and in most cases more than those that attended a brick and mortar. They view my degree as equal and I have been promoted as such (and often faster than my B&M counterparts).
I went on-line here:
