    Eva Baur
    I am studying the MBA in Human Resources and Organizational Psychology at Westford University College, and I am extremely delighted that I chose this 1-year online course. Coming from the manufacturing industry, I wanted an MBA that would enhance my expertise rather than replicate it. That’s why the idea of delving deeper into HR management piqued my interest, and the psychological component looked like a great add-on. At the same time, it provided me with the chance to refresh past knowledge, enhancing my studies with real-life experiences from my position as a C-suite executive. I am looking forward to completing this great program and would want to thank the whole Westford team for their assistance, patience, and advice during this journey.
