My thoughts as Executive Director:
We are proud of the value associated with our online M.B.A. program. We keep our tuition affordable because it is part of our mission. The vision of our Chancellor, Jerry Falwell Jr., is to keep Liberty Distance Learning affordable so as many people as possible can experience a Christ-centered education, that will propel each student forward spiritually as well as professionally. Our low tuition rates still come with the same quality and curriculum that our resident students experience on campus.
