If I put more time in it I can get it done faster. The best part is that you find out what you do know and what you need to know.
The courses are designed to allow me to apply the knowledge immediately. The assignments often support initiatives I am working on within my job such as public speaking and written communication, which allows me to demonstrate my career development improvements.
I actually got to be part of a team to write the policies and procedures at my work. I don't think I would have been able to be a part of that team if I hadn't finished the English curriculum and that was all because I started here at Brandman.
Being a college graduate has been on my ‘bucket’ list for over 20 years. Finishing college will be a huge feeling of accomplishment.
The flexibility is 100% my favorite thing. There are no deadlines. It means that if something does get in the way I don't get stressed about that.
The greatest value to me is the flexibility of the program because I travel frequently. It allows me to complete my degree while working in a challenging career that does not have predictable schedules or demands.
On several occasions, the conversations turn to where ‘we’ went to school… I secretly cringe waiting for them to ask what my degree is in. I feel this is the one place where I lack credibility in my job... and where having a degree will make a difference.
The faculty is always available and responsive; they work within my schedule when making appointments even if that means after 5:00 PM or on the weekends. They are extremely supportive, knowledgeable, and encouraging.
From the very start of my inquiry I have been impressed by the overwhelming support I receive from the entire team. The MyPath team is organized in such a way that all of my needs are met and exceed my expectation.
I love that I am in control of the pace of my program yet the material is challenging and comprehensive.
When comparing the CBE experience to my previous traditional college experience, the CBE program is so much more fitting in allowing me to maintain a full time job and complete my degree.
So far, my main interaction has been with Tutorial Faculty. Having been out of school for a very long time and never having written anything of much significance at the college level, I was very intimidated by my first written final assessment. Being able to send her my work and receive feedback made me feel much more confident about the work I was producing and eventually submitted for grading.
Pace is up to me, which is the way I need it. There are times when I am super motivated and can sit for 3-4 hours doing school work and times when I start, get 15 minutes in, can't concentrate and have to walk away. I know that completing my degree from a timing standpoint is completely up to me.
In some of the early competencies (Strategies, Marketing, etc.) I sailed through a lot of the coursework because it was material that I already use in my workplace.
