Program Outcomes

Success Story — Brandon Brigham, Class of 2009

Newman alumnus, Brandon Brigham, is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the United States. Brandon had recently started his business, Kansas Filtration, and needed a Newman accounting student with drive and expertise. Brandon got connected through Newman University with Rachel Leland, and she began working for him part-time while she completed a double major in accounting and business. Rachel was awarded “Outstanding Business Student” in 2014. Upon graduation, Rachel began working full-time for Brandon as the controller of Kansas Filtration, and together they worked to grow the company into a $10,000,000 business in their fourth year of operation. Today, several Newman alumni work at Kansas Filtration, a gift that keeps on giving.

Success Story — Francis Bahllman

Newman alumnus, Francis Bahllman, was named “Outstanding Business Student 13 years ago. After graduating from Newman, Francis went on to law school at Kansas University and got involved in mergers and acquisitions. He is a serial entrepreneur and recently wanted the name of an accounting student that could be the “face” and contact person for his real estate company that currently  manages over 80 properties and is growing very quickly. This is another example of our loyal alumni reaching out to get the brightest students on their team.
