What I admired the most were the professors. They are very structured; they are very disciplined. Their communication was on point, and their leadership style. They never criticized me. They worked with me.
Attending Brandman University* has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I can honestly say it's made me a better person. When you can take the things you learn in school and apply it, it makes you a better leader.
I would have never been able to quit my job to enroll in school. That was not an option because I’m a breadwinner in my household. Having 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 the icing on top.
