All, I am looking for a doctoral program to take my educational accomplishments to the next level. My goal with this doctorate is to be able to teach online. I am not sure I would teach full time, it may be something I do in addition to my day job as an ERP consultant. I would like to keep the cost of this below 50k, so that limits my options, and I am currently considering Liberty and University of the Cumberlands. My concerns with Liberty The school obviously has some controversy attached to it and is known for being very conservative in its views. I am not conservative nor particularly religious, but the religious aspect to some of the courses is not offputting to me. My main concern is how it might be perceived by others as it does carry connotations that I worry may hinder me when attempting to utilize the degree. My concerns with Cumberlands The school is regionally accredited, but only holds IACBE accreditation for its business degrees. Liberty, while not AACSB, at least has ACBSP accreditation. My second concern with Cumberlands is that I came across some articles on degreeinfo and on the internet which make the claim that this place is a visa haven and the quality of instruction suffers due to that. To me, that also paints the university in a bad light. Still, it is probably more low key than liberty. Both options are very affordable and I want to be cost conscious and make sure I get a positive ROI, I just have the above concerns.
