Brandman University is a private, nonprofit university located in Irvine, California, and a member of the Chapman University System. Established in 1958, Brandman University blends a legacy of academic excellence with an innovative curriculum and strong support services designed for working professionals and students with busy lives. The university serves 12,000 students annually in 52 undergraduate, graduate, credential, and certificate programs.
Beginning in May 2014, Brandman University began offering competency-based Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program. Brandman University is well positioned to offer a competency-based BBA program given the implementation of the Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) across all undergraduate degree programs. The institution’s faculty integrated the DQP competencies in upper division courses, ensuring that all students regardless of transfer status will achieve the institutional degree qualifications. Similar to the university’s other online programs, Brandman’s competency-based program will serve adult students nationally, continuing its core commitment to Hispanic/Latino students and military students.
