Self-Paced (MyPath)
Working adults prefer the flexible format that allows them study any time of day.
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.
Venita C. | Brandman MyPath BBA, Information Systems Management,
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Real World Experience With Immediate Value | Brandman MyPath BBA, 2016
Being a college graduate has been on my ‘bucket’ list for over 20 years. Finishing college will be a huge feeling of accomplishment.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Colin G. | Brandman MyPath BBA, Management and Organizational Leadership,
Seeing 3 friends/co-workers graduate from Brandman last May with their MBA's got me thinking. All 3 are married with young children and have jobs at least as demanding as mine. I am single with grown children. What was my excuse?
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
I love that I am in control of the pace of my program yet the material is challenging and comprehensive.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
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.
Current Student | Brandman MyPath, 2016
