Gordon Winn
The fact that Brandman University* was a nonprofit 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
*Brandman University is now UMass Global
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
*Brandman University is now UMass Global
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
*Brandman University is now UMass Global
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
*Brandman University is now UMass Global
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

Frequently Asked Questions

 Find out more about the basics of earning a bachelor's degree and discover how it can help you achieve your goals. 

  • A bachelor’s degree is a type of undergraduate academic program that prepares students for a particular career or interest. Traditionally it’s pursued immediately after high school, but not always. Some may choose to take a break for work or life while others may begin with an associate degree before advancing.
  • A bachelor’s degree typically takes four years to complete. Some schools, like UMass Global, however offer self-paced online bachelor’s degree programs that allow students to control their own timeline, which can possibly reduce this window. Learn more about competency-based learning
  • A Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree focuses on liberal arts and humanities. Benefits to earning this type of degree include providing students with versatile skill sets, teaching them how to innovate and relate to others, and being applicable to a variety of career opportunities. See more benefits.
  • Different countries have varying names for their equivalent education standards that translate to the U.S. bachelor’s degree, with most requiring about four years of study. Many professional fields expect candidates to have this foundational level completed, but employers may consider 4-8 years of work experience in a related field equivalent. 
  • Both are useful but have different areas of focus. A Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology is very versatile and can open up career opportunities in fields like social work, criminal justice and child psychology, while a Bachelor of Science (BS) typically prepares you for more research-based and clinical work.
