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.

The MPA program gives the learner what is needed to address real, important, public problems and it dives into what is means to be a successful, innovative & effective government organization.
Chip M. | Masters in Public Administration 
Seeing 3 friends/co-workers graduate last May with their MBA's got me thinking. All 3 are married with young children and have jobs at least as demanding as mine. I am single with grown children. What was my excuse?
