Brandman University named Top School by Military Advanced Education
Brandman University’s reputation for providing quality military and veteran education opportunities grew a notch this month with its Top School designation from the 2015 Military Advanced Education Guide to Colleges & Universities. The guide will be released in the December issue of Military Advanced Education and will be available mid-December online at www.maekmi.com
This year institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. Prospective students will be able to evaluate the more than 600 private, public, for-profit, nonprofit, four-year and two-year colleges surveyed for the guide and quickly target schools that follow the best practices in military education.
Brandman offers more than 50 degree, credential, authorization and certificate programs and has been serving military students throughout the world since 1958. For example, the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) program is designed specifically for commissioned officers, and Brandman was named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Online Bachelor’s programs for veterans. Brandman also offers generous transfer credits for previous military education, according to Assistant Vice Chancellor, Military Service, Nirmala Sharma.
“With 23 percent of our student population identifying as active duty military, veterans or their dependents, it becomes vital that we do our part to support these students and provide them with the education and services they deserve,” said Brandman Chancellor Gary Brahm.
The Military Advanced Education Guide was created to help students make informed choices.
“We designed this database with the military student in mind, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues such as activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information, said Kelly Fodel, the Guide’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”
