Testimonial

Vignesh Kumar Dhruvakumar

MBA Class of 2021

General Manager, Diamond Shipping Services LLC

As an executive-level manager, I found the MBA programme to be a complete package. The flexibility in classes allowed me to maintain a demanding work schedule alongside a rigorous course load. The calibre of the instructors and the alignment of the content is exceptional, and the component’s exclusive to the MBA programme, including the cohort structure and the dissertation project. I measure the programme’s value in not only my career growth, academic learning, and skills development, but also in the opportunities that Westford’s MBA programme gave me to build meaningful, lifelong relationships with a group of like-minded professionals.
