Online MBA programs aren't really designed for large career transitions. However, if you're looking for something to skill-up in your current company, or at the very least stay in the same industry / country, then it could work. 

But if this is the case, certainly you should look into the kind of representation each online MBA program you are looking at has in your industry / company (alumni network.) Ask around, see which programs / schools are valued among your peers and managers, and then go from there? Yes, surveying LinkedIn would also give you a broad view as well, but this may not be as effective as simply asking people.
