    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.

    About LJMU

    ljmulogo
    The Liverpool Mechanics Institute was founded by people of power and influence who recognized the transformative effects of education and the impact that learning and aspiration could have on individuals, communities and society. It was the first such institution to be founded in England. This small, pioneering movement was followed by the establishment of the Liverpool Institute and School of Art and the Liverpool Nautical College, and in 1900 Irene Mabel Marsh opened the IM Marsh campus. These organizations together laid the foundations for Liverpool John Moores University, an institution that has grown and flourished and continues to provide opportunities for all. Today, with a vibrant community of over 23,000 students from over 100 countries world-wide, 2,400 staff and 250 degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK.
