    I was impressed by the quality of Brandman instructors who were absolutely committed to providing their students with the knowledge and skills to help with their career development.
    Angelo Clements Jr | BA, Organizational Leadership, 2014
    The fact that Brandman University was a not-for-profit school, really sealed the deal for me. I wanted to be able to attend a college, where I knew that my money, my tuition, was being used for the school and not being paid to the shareholders.
    Gordon W. | BA, Organizational Leadership, 2014
    I’m over the moon that staff there made it so easy, and I learned so much that I could apply to my work right now. I improved myself in leadership competencies and it’s made me a much better leader for the Department of the Navy.
    Michele R. | BA, Organizational Leadership, 2015
