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.

When we open up educational doors for our employees, we get to be a little part of that person's story and personal development. It's not just about saving money, but how many lives we have impacted...someone's life is better and enriched because of it.
