Liberty University Reviews

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.

I love Liberty University! It gives me the freedom to study where ever I'm at. Personnel has the highest standard yet on customer service and they are very proactive helping each other out in order to assist each student to strive. I really like their hours of operation which are from day to night time. It's very easy to communicate with teachers and university employees. Their answers to questions are very clear, concise and precise. I like its class program flexibility. God willing, my children will be studying at Liberty University as well.
Liberty University is an incredible place to receive an education. It is expensive, but it provides top-of-the-line education, resources, professors, and experiences. The campus is gorgeous, and the Christian atmosphere is refreshing and encouraging. The faculty and professors are one of the best pieces of LU. They are so passionate about their field and their students, and they are dedicated to providing us with the best education possible. Graduates of LU enter their field of study with confidence and experience, being professional in their careers and driven to reach their goals. 10/10!
