"Brandman is a "non-profit" University of Phoenix. I was in the MBA program until I realized that the they were using the same business model as the for-profits. These guys are only in it for the money. They point to their WASC affiliation and connection to Chapman as indicators of quality. Don't be fooled: WASC also accredited the now defunct Corinthian College, and gets paid by member schools to qualify them to receive student loans. Chapman College, the prestigious school in Orange, provides no academic oversight over Brandman, and apparently wants nothing to do with them. The Competency Based Education program is a complete joke. Earn your degree on your iphone? Please. How can people who have no competence in a field--no one in business has a degree in business or economics or experience running a business, including the Dean, certify the competence of others?"

"At first I was nervous about attending Brandman University because I had never heard of it until I moved to California. I already had a BS from another school and wanted to begin a Master's Program but was unsure what I wanted to do so I just applied for the BBA. After talking with my advisor, she showed me how I could apply for the Master's Program and complete it within a year instead of doing two years to complete another Bachelor's Degree. Sometimes it is hard to get a response back from email, but if I call or go into the office I've always been helped. I had an issue with billing but that was all straightened up by the OneStop. All my Professors have been great so far and have been very knowledgeable in the subjects they were teaching. I have no complaints with Brandman University and would recommend this school to everyone!"

"I attended a junior college and received an AS in math and science. I transferred to Cal State San Bernardino which was a nightmare. Constant holds for reasons they could not figure out. Registration was a mess. I never got the classes I needed. I got tired and transferred to Brandman. The classes are smaller and professors are much better. Other institutions have professors with very little to no real world experience. The majority of my professors at Brandman had decades of experience. When I graduated I got a job within the first week making more money than I ever had. I am hoping to go back to Brandman for a MBA in the near future."

"Like many others I wanted to continue my education at a school that catered to my lifestyle as an employed mother. I found Brandman to be a perfect set up for me and my family. My degree program will be complete this summer 2014 and I couldn't be happier with the support I have received from this school. The OneStop administrations are great and do their very best to help students have a positive experience at Brandman. There's no "perfect" system no matter where one attends school. That's why, just like at work or in personal life, one needs to be proactive in their own affairs to prevent fewer mistakes. I will be continuing into the MBA for Accounting program shortly after graduating."

"Brandman University is simply the best. The professors are top notch. I have experience with both the Folsom and Roseville Campus as well as online. The blended style of learning is really useful and easy to keep up with. The professors treat you like an adult and expect you to know how to use computers and be up to date with simple applications like PowerPoint and excel. If you are looking to be walked through every assignment and concept discussed throughout the courses this is not the right school for you. Professors expect you to start at week one with momentum and cary it through week 8. With these shorter courses there is no time to fall behind or slack off. The administration staff and educational counselors have been extremely successful with helping me make a plan for both my Bachelors and now my Masters I have attended and passed over 30 courses at Brandman all with the grades I earned and expected. Be prepared to spend hours doing independent research and either in person or online discussion for each course you take."

"I attended the Victor Valley campus and the online program. I also attended many other schools unfortunately that resulted in myself withdrawing in their program. Brandman is different. They have staff members who actually can get stuff done. K and E especially along with the rest of the staff over in Victorville are extremely good at their jobs. The professors are really well qualified. My favorite part about the professors is that many of them actually have real jobs in the industry unlike a lot of full time professors at other schools that have no industry experience. The eight week term is a lot better than the 16 week terms at other schools. Instead of trying to manager four classes you only have to manager two at a time (but you still take four classes each term). Also the chairs are comfortable which is nice since sitting in class for three hours can be rough after a long day of work."

"I have taken 6 classes over an eight month period and cannot believe the low standards for admission, the disorganization and low quality of the instruction, and the easy grading. This school seems to be admitting anyone, especially those who can get student loans and G.I.'s, and are just passing them through to feed on the money. Based on my experience, I am leaving this school and would not even consider hiring a job applicant that says he got a deegree from Brandman."
