Brandman* has been a key contributor to fulfilling our strategic goal of developing and educating better leaders in the Court. As a result of the training and services provided by Brandman University* and as evidenced by in depth evaluation reports, personnel are decidedly more productive, engaged and knowledgeable in performing their duties.
A culture where learning is encouraged and supported will echo into other aspects of your business.
We hope employees will say, "When I was at County of Orange, they made it easier for me to get my degree." And that word of mouth and positive branding is valuable. Whether an employee is here for 1 year or 10 years, we still get value immediately.
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 the 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.
MyPath is right on for people you want to develop in your organization.
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.
In a struggle to attract and retain good people, our clients are always looking for employee engagement and company culture. Yet very few companies understand what that means. It's more than an employee t-shirt or potluck and the Brandman* program really falls in line with improving your culture.
Brandman* really wants to work with you where you're at. It's great for working adults and they make it easy...it's definitely been a great opportunity for the organization as a whole.
The Brandman* Ed.D. program provided me with essential tools for leading during times of systemic change at a time when the California community college system is undergoing rapid transformation. The program was highly practical: I was able to immediately apply what I was learning in a given class to projects and initiatives I was working on at my college, and I continue to draw on these skills daily.
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.
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.
