UK School VS Regionally Accredited US School
#11
Just throwing out there, a Phd from Liberty could possibly be a hindrance when looking for teaching positions at many institutions that may be more of a liberal progressive bent. Personally, I think that all should be more open to different views, and they sure all say they are but in practice.. yeah not so much.

I have neighbors who work in the administration of a college in town. Liberty is not well regarded in their circle. Their circle includes several other colleges in the region as well. Liberty has a reputation. That is something to consider when wanting a career in academia. Liberty is in the news for all of the wrong things lately as well.

If I was in your situation and looking at a specific Business or Communications program, I would recommend a PhD vs a DBA program.  PhD is academic/research inclined and the DBA is more applied/professional - you can still teach, but generally at the Community College or undergraduate level... For myself, I don't get any tuition assistance/reimbursement from work, so I go the cheapest/easiest/fastest option.  For you, I suggest a local school first, then choose a state/non-for profit, and lastly, if needed, a foreign or for profit school.

Yes, good point.  Definitely something to consider if I teach elsewhere on the future.  Truth be told, where I live probably 95% of people here haven’t heard of either school!  Still something to consider.

Yes, agreed.  They are always in the news.  It is sort of crazy.

Thank you!  I totally agree.  I am only considering PhD programs now.  Options are less unfortunately.  DBA programs seem to be everywhere now!
