    “The YBLP Program was a huge success. Even in a world where almost any piece of information can be Googled, certain knowledge can only be gained via experience. The best example is Westford University College; Youth Business Leadership program. The speakers have been wonderful teachers to me. Their politeness, eagerness to share their own experiences, and expertise while listening intently have taught me a lot. Apart from that, as mentors, they have always tried to help me become a better version of myself rather than contorting me to their way of thinking. Their unflinching support has been invaluable.

    Enrolling in Westford’s Youth Business Leadership Program was one of the finest decisions Ihave ever made. A wonderfully created curriculum with corporate speakers from all over the world is what makes YBLP so special; in just four weeks, the program encouraged me to go deeper into myself as an individual and better comprehend myself. Not only did I learn a lot from YBLP, but I also obtained an 80 per cent scholarship, which was the icing on the cake!

    As part of my Self-Transformation Journey, I completed my MBA in Project Management, and I am pleased to be a Westford University College Alumni after this unique experience in which I gained substantial information and new abilities to assist me in achieving my ultimate objective in my career transition. My dedication alone would not have made a difference if it were not for the faculty members and the entire Westford team’s unwavering and boundless support. I am excited to return to WUC for a Doctoral degree. Westford, you are incredible!

      Additional Information

      Westford Mentorship Program

      A bachelor’s degree is increasingly the norm. This means, that students are determined to equip themselves with a repertoire of skills that will set them apart in today’s competitive work environment. The pressure to become well-rounded graduates with grades, soft skills, and technical knowledge is driving students to seek personal and professional development outside the classroom. Corollary to it, most organizations nowadays consider that abilities like communication, organization, and commercial awareness are just as, if not more, vital than specific technical or academic knowledge and skills connected with graduate’s certification. The Westford Mentorship Program bridges the gap between academia and the workforce by providing students with an opportunity to engage with experts in their field of interest, ask insightful questions, and enhance their career exploration. In turn, Westford Alumni can reconnect with the Westford Community and share their expertise and knowledge with the next generation of innovators, movers, and shakers. It all equates in giving back to the society by having a positive influence in the lives of young people, especially those who are looking for meaningful professions.
      Thanks!
