Year in Review 2017: School of Business and Professional Studies
Brandman MyPath: Two new options joined the MyPath suite. Self-paced, competency-based Brandman MyPath options expanded with the introduction of the information systems management Bachelor of Business Administration. As with all MyPath programs, students work at their own pace and can use knowledge gained in other classes or at work to complete the all-online coursework, learning to create mobile and web-based business applications.
The new general business concentration for the MyPath BBA gives students the flexibility to explore the many sides of business.
Accelerated Bachelor of Business Administration to Master of Business Administration: This new program allows students to move seamlessly toward earning an MBA accelerated degree with up to 18 fewer credits than separate BBA and MBA programs. Admission begins during a student’s senior year in the BBA program.
New articulation pathways
Military pathway: New articulation (credit) options were added for three degree programs. Qualifying members of the military are eligible for nine credits toward the Master of Public Administration (MPA) or nine credits toward the Master of Science in Human Resources (MSHR) or 12 credits toward an MBA.
Corporate pathways: Thanks to a Brandman partnership with Guild, qualifying employees at Chipotle and Taco Bell get credit toward Brandman degrees based on their corporate training. Additional pathway partnerships are in the works.
Expanding data analytic options
The School of Business and Professional Studies made significant progress toward adding a new MBA emphasis area and graduate certificate that focuses on geospatial data analysis and business intelligence by laying the groundwork and building a network with the geospatial analytics and mapping firm Esri.
