Brandman University Reviews - MBA in Organizational Leadership
Very engaging an enlightening program. Had a chance to concentrate on studying one class/subject area at a time. Fund the Finance course the most challenging. Made some good contacts and, I think, lifelong friends along the way. I do wish the alumni group was more active, too.
Although I had a few "bumps" with financial aid and occasional issues with the advisor (people are human after all), I had a good experience. The majority of my courses were hard work and I learned a great deal from them. Some professors were phenomenal, others just "good." However, the same can be said of every university on the planet. I've read quite a few negative comments, but it seems like in many cases, some folks need to be spoon fed. As a few others have stated in their comments,be your own advocate. Ask questions and seek out answers if you don't know, etc. In school, just like in life, it is important to be resourceful. Don't sit back and wait for someone to tell you something. I never had an issue if I went in search of the answer -- Brandman staff were more than willing to help. I went to this school for the convenience of taking online courses and did not want to attend the diploma mills (National University or Univ of Phoenix). I believe I received a good education and am happy overall with my Brandman MBA experience.
The experience I have had at Brandman has been excellent. I had a lot of support from the disability office when I needed it for the short time I needed it. The professors seem to be top notch, excluding one that I can think of, and the professors have challenged my learning and abilities...I am glad I have gotten my money's worth. I would recommend Brandman to my friends and anyone looking for a well rounded education.
Actually, I will be graduating in May of this year 2015! I've absolutely loved my experience here at Brandman University so far. The professors are well educated, informative, and love teaching. The quality In material I've attained is always applicable professionally and personally and I love that! Definitely a rising school.
One Stop is not there to manage your money. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of their financial needs. When you open up a checking account, you do not hold the bank accountable for for your lack of funds. Again, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that you are financing your education, whether it is with Financial Aid or paying out of pocket. Not every system is perfect, but I rather call one person to handle my concerns than calling 3 different departments. They have many campuses throughout CA and WA.
As a working student, I understand that we have other priorities and responsibilities, but the students who speak poorly of BU, should understand that it is still our responsibility to be proactive and not reactive. Follow up with your advisor or with your one stop if your concern has not been addressed. We cannot always feel entitled to certain things, yes we pay for this education, so it is still up to us to ensure that everything is being handled accordingly.
We are all flawed beings, we make mistakes, but we work towards making things better. I think that the system has moved up several notches from where it was last year. This school has a bright and successful future. I will recommend Brandman University to everyone that I know who is seeking a successful education and a bright career.
