Brandman University was the presenting sponsor of the Young Professionals Summit in Irvine last week. Chancellor Gary Brahm led the way, opening the program with remarks about the need to transition to an information economy and how Brandman’s new MyPath, competency-based education program, helps meet the needs of young professionals.

“We want to be your partner for life-long learning,” he said.

Dr. Jalin Brooks Johnson discussed ethics and business at the Young Professionals Summit. Other Brandman speakers at the summit were Chancellor Gary Brahm and Dr. Deb Ferber.

Dr. Jalin Brooks Johnson discussed “Ethics 101” and urged the group to keep in mind how their life experiences influence how people make choices. “Know your own standards,” she told them. Dr. Deb Ferber, a faculty member in the School of Business and Professional Studies, discussed what it takes to think like an entrepreneur.
