Testimonial of former student:
"While choosing to study I was apprehensive of changing my routine from a hectic, highly competitive corporate life in the banking sector in UAE to the lecture rooms at Westford , for me it was a challenge. However contrary to my preconceived notions , westford gave me an experiential learning experience which helped me find the right balance of work and study . The MBA program enabled me to reflect on some very valuable concepts and tools that I can apply in the future and equipped me with cutting edge management techniques and a well rounded view of the global best practices The dual qualification has greatly benefited to progress in my career and I might not have attained two world class qualifications in this duration if I had chosen to pursue it separately. On top of these great experiences I was fortunate enough to have had the wonderful opportunity to explore new cultures especially during the 2 weeks study block in India...Exploring the serene charm of the back waters, pristine beauty of the coastal beaches in Kerala, an amazing combination of study and holiday which gave me a new lease of life"
