Brandman University is now accepting applications for its new Doctor of Education degree program in Organizational Leadership (Ed.D.). Oriented for professionals working in education, business, government, non-profit and other fields, the hybrid program offers both online and in-person immersion sessions. With a focus on Transformational Change and Leadership, the program aims to help mold visionary leaders in the fields of education, business, government, non-profit, and others.

Faculty from the University’s School of Education and Business and Professional Studies, as well as experts in the field, will monitor and support students through a field-based Transformational Change Project (TCP). The TCP is designed to help students cultivate the innovation, team effort, reinforcing influence, and analytical reasoning needed in today’s workplace environment.

Offered in 8-week sessions, the program caters to working professionals by providing an integrated curriculum of online instruction and face-to-face guidance. In addition, students will attend presentations by leading professionals in the education field and meet faculty and their fellow peers a total of six times on the weekends in order to build collective, foundational relationships.   

Gary Brahm, chancellor of Brandman University, described the new curriculum as a “groundbreaking program.”

“It revolutionizes the way students are prepared for the complex job of leading organizations in chaotic times to achieve breakthrough results,” Brahm said. “With the introduction of a transformational change project, our students will receive relevant experience in what works and what doesn’t. With this real world education, our students will be prepared to help lead their organizations.”

A private, non-profit institution accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), Brandman University holds a history of academic distinction with a broad-minded curriculum and dependable assistance services formatted for working professionals.

Brandman is offering $10,000 in scholarships to students who meet the guidelines while financial aid is available for those who also meet the criteria. The first class will convene for this year’s fall session.
