The fact that Brandman University was a not-for-profit school, really sealed the deal for me. I wanted to be able to attend a college, where I knew that my money, my tuition, was being used for the school and not being paid to the shareholders.
Gordon W. | BA, Organizational Leadership, 2014
The distinguished faculty at Brandman and their dedication to their students as well as the administration have made it possible for us students to overcome the challenges we faced and helped us bring our educational goals to fruition.
Maribel L. | B.A. Legal Studies, 2017
The Brandman program, at the end of the day, was real deal education. I wasn't interested in just paying a bunch of money to get a degree. I wanted a degree that gave me a skillset that I could use on the job.
Tom Schultz, Fire Chief | BA, Applied Studies, 2015
Obtaining an MBA always was on my bucket list, however, until I found Brandman I was facing large loans and a strict school regiment. The flexibility of Brandman’s program along with Kia’s tuition assistance made the perfect combination. An MBA gave me the self-confidence to trust my ideas and question conventional thinking.
Julie M. | MBA,
I would recommend Brandman for a quality education to anyone. I know the faculty is absolutely committed to a quality education. They’ll make sure that you’ll get what you’re coming there for, the knowledge you need.
James M. | MA Organizational Leadership , 2007
Going back to school helped me get out of my comfort zone. It helped me get past the ‘we’ve always done it that way’ mentality. I learned that I needed to innovate personally, professionally and to help other become more innovative.
Keith F. | MBA Program, 2015
