    Meet Our Faculty

    Lindsay Yossef
    What separates these classes from those at other universities is they’re not just point and click. We were mindful of not pigeonholing our students so they could apply what they’re learning to a variety of sectors.
    Lindsay Yossef | Brandman University. Instructional Designer
    My desire to go back to school was personal. Both my mom and dad graduated from high school, and I’m the first in my family to go on for my college education. I want to be a positive role model for my children. I can do all three – work, family and school; I didn’t have to choose.
    Brandy C. | MBA Program
    I was surrounded by peers who went to school 10-15 years prior. I feel that my Brandman* education catapulted me above my peers. After all, I was learning about current technologies and how to work in a global economy.
    Tami F. | BS, Computer Information Systems
