    Westford offered an ideal program for my situation,  the MBA International program by CCCU. This is the only institution that allowed me to study, work and have a family and at the same time make significant progress towards my degree.  It has opened so many possibilities and I feel it will transform my life and improve my prospects in terms of job opportunities, career advancement, and professional growth. I have always loved studying business and aspire to pursue a career. Through this program, I am one step closer to my dream. What piqued my interest in the course was the opportunity to learn more about the various aspects of the ever-changing business world and business abilities while being exposed to diverse cultures and networks.  The MBA International program combines theoretical knowledge with the practical applications of business management, which is what I am most interested in. The opportunity that Westford provides to students like me, who did not want to go down the conventional route to studying, is incredible

    I remember the day when I was skeptical about pursuing an MBA after almost 2 decades of completing my bachelor’s degree. When I look back today, I couldn’t be prouder. I have completed my master’s degree with distinction from Westford. Today, I know this was one of my best decisions to get associated with the Westford community and to graduate from the Canterbury Christ Church University in International Business. I learnt a great deal, expanded my horizons, and established the foundations for success in my career. I also gained valuable experience, having been elected as Team Lead for the group I was assigned to and to have made friends for life. Nothing but deep gratitude to all the faculty and staff members at Westford who have taken the time, put great efforts in building a comprehensive curriculum, and managed it efficiently. Wishing Westford good luck in their journey to pave successful paths to future students.

    Nowadays, the world is shrinking when it comes to Business. Companies are expanding and making their presence worldwide so it’s very important what’s going around the world. The demand and need of people in different regions. Now choosing MBA in International Business especially from Westford university College has a reason behind. It not only matches my timings as I am a working professional but it also gives me a chance to interact with people residing in different regions of the world and it’s a very good exposure when we share our ideas based on the market situations. So while being in UAE and doing this MBA I am actually very much aware about what is happening around and I give the whole credit to Westford Team and it’s faculties. I am very happy with my choice.
