The nonprofit university serving San Diego

April 14, 2016 by Gustav Deutsch

Students at the Brandman University San Diego campus have many different reasons for going back to school. Some are redefining themselves and starting their second career while others are hoping to take the next step in their existing career. Whatever the reason, the staff and faculty in San Diego are eager to help with educational goals.


Danielle: I didn’t think I would be returning back to college and graduating at 50 years old.

Narrator: Brandman University classrooms are full of students like Danielle Boudreaux.

Danielle: I’ve run a business. I’ve had a professional career. I’ve done 32 years in advertising and marketing and just decided that I wanted to go back to school and get my degree and do something something completely different.

Narrator: For some it’s about a new path in life, for others it’s about advancement in their careers.

Monica: I know that through having my Masters in Business Administration I’m gonna be able to continue to climb up the ladder.

Narrator: Many students are hesitant to enroll while juggling the challenges of work and family.

Monica: I would’ve never been able to quit my job to enroll in school, that was not an option because I’m, you know, a breadwinner in my household.

Narrator: So, flexibility is the key to so many students’ success at Brandman.

Dr. Sue Yockelson: Students can take classes on ground, they can take classes online, they can do kind of a combination of both.

Phil Arnold: The way that we provide an education allows them to live their life and still come to school and achieve their goals.

Danielle: I just decided to just go for it.

Monica: Having Brandman offer me the opportunity to keep my job and continue to work, and to work around my schedule as a full-time employee and a mother of a toddler was really, honestly, the the icing on top.

Narrator: She now has her undergraduate degree in psychology and is going for her masters.

Monica: I have expanded the possibilities for my entire family for generations to come. My Brandman experience has been wonderful.
