I don't know anyone in it personally.  However, it seems to be a solid program and is regionally accredited.  So you can't complain.  I am not sure about professional accreditation as business isn't my field.  You might want to check it out.

Liberty is a solid school. I have several parents in my Sunday school class who's kids go there. I have heard nothing but good about it. :)

Many educational fields have professional accreditation.
Religious studies have ATS (Association of Theological Schools) that is very prestigious.
Library Studies have ALA (American Library Association) which is almost required for the degree to mean anything.

In business there are a couple of professional accreditors, I think.  It really isn't my strong suit, but I think that AACSB (http://www.aacsb.edu/accreditation/standards.asp) is a big one.  Maybe some of the others here can help out with that.

But I know that in addition to regional accreditation, professional accreditations can be very useful.

The two professional accreditors in the business field are the Assembly to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business http://www.aacsb.edu and the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs http://www.acbsp.org . AACSB is the more prestigious of the two. Neither accredits Liberty.

While ATS is perhaps the most prestigious and considered the "gold standard" for theological institutional accreditation, other accrediting agencies provide recognized theological school accreditation such as http://www.tracs.org and http://www.detc.org

Check out Regent University's MBA program: http://www.regent.edu. I graduated from there in '96 and visited the school a couple of months ago.  It has changed some in that it is now harder to get in, but I'm sure you can. A caveat: if you are married prepare your wife to be a graduate widow until you finish.  I'm too old to go through that kind of pain again, but it was an excellent education.  You develop a Biblical world view of business to be a Christian leader who will go out and change the world.

As an aggie who lived at the old Plaza hotel University Tower in the 90s, I am very excited to see this development.  That has always been an eyesore.
