Competency-based education development a major achievement in 2014
For the School of Business and Professional Studies, the work done to develop Competency Based Education, Brandman’s newest method of helping students gain a business degree, was the school’s most important accomplishment.
“Our faculty teamed with faculty from the School of Arts and Sciences to develop a competency-based undergraduate business degree. Competency Based Education as a degree delivery framework is new. It’s exciting. It’s future-oriented. We are pioneers striving to make a positive difference for our customers. Our work on this program was motivated by our vision at Brandman: We will be the leader in the evolution of adult learning.” Dean Glenn Worthington, School of Business and Professional Studies
Here are some of the other highlights of year for school:
} Established a new Human Resources Advisory Board to add to the Business and IT Advisory boards
} Coordinated the broadcast of a monthly online business talk show from the Irvine campus
} Expanded the B.S. Computer Technology and Masters of Public Administration degree programs to online
The list represents “an incredible amount of work by the dean and the entire faculty,” said Chancellor Gary Brahm during a State of the University address given to the faculty and staff in December.
