    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
    *Brandman University is now UMass Global
    Brandman* goes to great lengths to make sure we have excellent professors. I have been a Brandman* student for my bachelor’s and master’s degrees because of the dedicated educators. I couldn’t be happier with my experience here.
    Jamie K. | MA, Organizational Leadership
    *Brandman University is now UMass Global
    My academic advisor was a great support system. He was my advisor throughout my master’s program and he took the time to learn about me personally so we could make the best schedule to accommodate my life.
