    I am a graduate of Liberty University's business school. I received my MBA while working full-time and taking a full-time class load. After looking around at various graduate schools, I chose Liberty due to its affordability, reputation, and its accreditation.

    Due to discounts through work, my MBA had a total cost of approximately $16,000 for the entire program! Otherwise, the degree is still an extremely affordable option with a price of around $24,000 for the entire program. In comparison, I considered some schools in my state of North Carolina - one of which was the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Even in the online track, UNC's website stated that the MBA program would cost a minimum of $99,000 total!

    I found Liberty to be very challenging and thorough. Please note: if you are not good at writing, you may not do very well in this graduate school. Our assignments were comprised of writing 90% of the time.

    Liberty University provides a well rounded education from a Christian World View. The campus is continually being upgraded. The cafeteria is one of the nations top ranked. The degree options are almost unlimited covering all disciplines from medical, to aviation, to cyber, to education, to divinity and beyond. The student and family support is vast and truly caring. This is my home away from home! Plus they made the sweet 16 in basketball this year and won the first game. Go Flames!
    I've just started classes at Liberty University Online and I love it! The teachers are very helpful and quick to respond, and the only issues so far have been technical. Doing classes online means there's not a lot of interaction between classmates, and there's often more technical problems, however, the amount of money that can be saved is amazing. I can get my whole degree for less than one year's fees and tuition on campus would cost. Overall I've had an excellent experience with Liberty.
