    I am a Medical Doctor by profession, currently pursuing a master’s in business administration with specialization in Healthcare Management at Westford University College. I chose to study with Westford University college because it offers flexibility of having full time employment whilst studying, enhancing my skills, and improving my future professional prospects. I believe the thing I have enjoyed most about studying with WUC is being able to interact with so many driven individuals from various cultural and professional backgrounds. The idea of being in the same class with colleagues from all over the globe and learning from each other and spreading the WUC footprint all over the world is amazing. And lastly, the support from the University staff is commendable. Starting from the course administrator to the Professors. They genuinely care about how the student is doing within the course and whether we understand, rather than just giving out information and letting the students absorb it however they want.

    As a senior manager, I sought another qualification that would suit managing and operating such large projects professionally.” In addition to technical expertise, I required financial, administrative, leadership, and other executive knowledge demanded of 21st-century executives. Westford University College’s MBA program (GAU program) is incredibly adaptable, world-class, and suited for busy people like me, with a variety of sub-specialties to select from. It is delivered online on weekends, is extremely inexpensive, is highly participatory, and is taught by qualified and professional faculty members. Assignments and case studies are relevant and challenging, but the professors provide excellent help. The student assistance is also excellent, with regular check-ins and follow-up to ensure that students remain engaged.

    I chose Westford University College to pursue my MBA in Healthcare Management, and it was one of the finest decisions I’ve ever made. So far, my education at Westford University College has been wonderful. The institution offers excellent study possibilities as well as exposure to people from all backgrounds.

Stepping into the world of business after graduating from pharmacy was a little intimidating, but the faculty supported the entire process and gave me a platform to improve and demonstrate my talents. I look forward to my weekly classes serving as executed precursor in my career growth.
