For more than 30 years busy working adults in the San Joaquin Valley have relied on Brandman University for high-quality education and flexible blended programs.

Richard Carnes: Its three hours one night a week and then the rest of the work is done online so that they can do a lot of the class work at the convenience of their time schedule.

Mandy Jenkins: When you come to Brandman you’re really trying to move up or you’re trying to get that next step.

Gary Beaudette: Yeah, I’ll do some seminars, we’ll just invite business out…

Gary Beaudette started his own consulting firm after earning his MBA at Brandman.

Beaudette: You could think of a million excuses why not to go but sometimes you need to just get up and say you know what I need to do this for myself, I need to do this for my family and I need to get better.

Bryan Marks: It is a challenge…

But for Bryan Marks, now in Brandman’s doctoral program, a challenge well worth it.

Marks: My master’s degree kinda spring boarded me into the efforts of having a little bit of a higher self-esteem when it came to education.

And students say adding schoolwork to already busy schedules hasn’t hurt their family lives, in fact, they say quite the opposite.

Marks: And for me it was amazing because my son was seeing what I was doing and it was having a very positive influence on him, in fact he would do his homework at times when I was doing my homework.

Beaudette: I think just setting a good example for them, but also just showing them that hey, you know, if you’re well organized you could accomplish what you want to accomplish.
