It was a pleasure and an honor to be part of the delegation at the La’Reussite 2023. The organisation and setting were exemplary. To
see so many Canterbury Christ Church students graduat- ing was a very proud moment for both institutions.
Witnessing each student receive their award to rapturous applause from fellow students, family members and staff proved to be a little emotional at times. It was evident that some inspirational students won prizes, and we will eagerly watch their transition into successful business owners, industry leaders

MBA International - CCCU (Valedictorian 2022)

My university life has been very eventful like a rollercoaster ride, filled with many ups

and downs. It was like a dream come true as attending university, making new friends, and getting out of my comfort zone were some aspects I never thought I would experience.

Westford University College has provided an amazing experience for its students, from having classes with a practical understanding of a wide range of business activities in the corporate world to having WeConnect events by inviting real industry business leaders so that we as students can have broader corporate exposure. These allowed me to grow and develop new skills and adapt to unprecedented circumstances and challenges of the life ahead. I have achieved a lot through my university journey, and the best way to end this chapter was the graduation ceremony- La Réussite.

Graduating and achieving a big academic milestone as a valedictorian from Canterbury Christ Church University all has been a bless- ing and I am really grateful that I had these three amazing and memorable years of univer- sity life. 

not easy, I am extremely proud of myself for persevering. The diversity of the modules broadened my thinking as a leader and had a great impact on my daily work life as well. I would like to present a special appreciation to the faculty and other Westford staff for their massive support to me throughout the journey. This great experience with Westford has gummed the grounds for my DBA expedition. Eleanor Roosevelt said “When you give joy to other people, you get more joy in return. You should give a good thought to happiness that you can give out.” I, therefore, wish all the great happiness as Westford continues to embark on this joyful journey of academics in the life of students.

I remember the day when I was skeptical about pursuing an MBA after almost two 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 associat- ed 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 eficiently.

Wishing Westford good luck in their journey to pave successful paths to future students.

I was searching for a program that would not only teach new concepts but also develop my practical and research skills and indeed that is what I experienced

through my MBA journey at the university. The faculty is extremely qualified as they have strengthened and improved my capabilities to think outside the box and apply ideas with high skills. I am very proud to have joined Westford University College and be associated with the faculty members and my peers.

Today, I’m not only a graduate but I’m also a student leader in the ‘Class of 2022’ and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end my undergraduate

program. The faculty members and learning resources at Westford provided me with approachable, knowledgeable and inspiring sheer guidance with mind-opening perspectives. I believe Westford University is the epitome of learning that allows students to move one step closer to their goals as it is not just a place to earn a degree but to be groomed holistically and step into the world as confident professionals. Closing this chapter of my life and hereby opening the doors for a new one.

Studying at West- ford University College has been a huge honour. From

the coursework to industrial visits, and global events such as Expo 2020, I had the chance to develop knowledge of the corporate world both theoretically and practically. The coursework at Westford and CCCU was catered to keep the students conversant with corporate trends and maximise practical learning required to achieve success. My time here was marked by growth and opportunities as my time here was marked by acquiring skills that’ll further my professional career and portfolio. Thank you, West- ford.

BSc (Hons) in Business Manage- ment CCCU, UK

My MBA journey has been a challenging one as juggling between my work and the classes was not an easy task. However, the faculty and other staff members at Westford

University College made it a seamless experience. The faculty members were versed and provided clear instructions, inputs and guidance with constructive criticism on our projects and assignments that allowed me to create a whole different perspective beyond my knowledge and experience. At Westford I have built strong relationships with my peers that I will cherish for a lifetime. The MBA coursework helped me gain deeper understanding of business concepts with their real-life applications in the corporate environment. I learned that “no one is too busy to study and learn; it is just a matter of deciding if you want to empower yourself or not.” Thank you, Westford, and CCCU.
