B.Sc (Hons.) in Business Management

My experience with CCCU has been excellent. The modules are very informative and touch upon different areas of business management addressing the challenges and opportunities in the business world. The assessment tasks were well explained by Westford University College Module Leaders and our transition from HND to top up was very smooth. I have received enough support to be able to undertake my study amidst the very challenging pandemic situation.

B.Sc (Hons.) in Business Management

My experience so far has been very smooth and enjoyable, transitioning from HND to the bachelor top-up program seemed like it would be quite difficult and was very intimidating in the beginning, but with the help of my professors and with the support of the Westford and CCCU team it has been wonderful so far. I am glad to be completing my journey with CCCU and Westford University College.

B.Sc (Hons.) in Business Management

After searching for the best MBA program in the Middle East, I found the MBA International Program offered by CCCU was the most suitable to reach my goals and progress further with an international qualification. The fabulous support received from the Westford team and the honest and friendly class interactions have made it a very enjoyable experience for me.

Arshad Azeez
MBA International

My experience with CCCU B.Sc (Hons.) in Business Management was a little challenging in the beginning with the number of assessments, general nervousness about moving the bachelor top-up program, but it became exciting and interesting once everything was settled. With the help of our faculty, I could adjust to new changes and learn many new subjects, terms and perform well in my assessments. I am glad that I am a part of the CCCU program, and I thank Westford and all the faculty members for being my constant support throughout the year.
