It is always indeed a source of pride to do MBA, especially for working professionals, and those pursuing higher education towards their pursuit of excellence are undeniably a privileged lot, as many don’t get this opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and competencies associated with such a prestigious course.
There are also a number of schools and colleges running MBA Courses, but these are more transactional in nature in terms of delivering a standard pattern of education following a regimen of classes, examinations, certain activities, etc. What is required is a transformational MBA program, which can transform and take a working professional to a different platform of not only acquisition of hard skills like knowledge and competencies, but also ingraining in the individual the right attitude and the extremely important softer skills which are critical and crucial not only for the working professional, but also for the organization being served in by the person. This is where a very distinctive UK MBA program is conducted by Westford University College, UAE.
There is a marked distinct advantage of conducting the MBA Course through the aegis of the University of Wolverhampton, the UK through Westford University College. It is a course conducted by one of the best faculties from UK, India, including worldwide faculties who are not only very passionate trainers but also have a vast diverse experience in the business corporate world. The essence of a good master’s program is tested when the theory and knowledge gained therein is blended and integrated into business management solutions and processes. There have to be elements of hard skills gained during the teaching blended along with the softer skills of people, so that individuals, as well as businesses, flourish with sustainable growth. This is exactly what the University of Wolverhampton program does, in terms of not only imparting the requisite knowledge and skills to the incumbents doing the program but also helping them develop their soft skills to transform that learning into actual pragmatic doable things for their respective organizations.
The students get their knowledge, acquire skills and competencies through the various experiential training activities and training aids the College uses to make the whole teaching experience more fun and enjoyable, which is a major distinctive feature of Westford as compared to other educational institutions. Also, the constant student support given to help them out with all their academic work, as well as imparting soft skills training workshops to them makes the entire experience for the students an unparalleled one. The faculties here act as the student’s mentors and support them for whatever issue or problem a student has, which can go well beyond the classroom teaching also. The students’ experiences thus with Westford are always endearing, and the strong alumni network of ex-students is also a great way of networking amongst students and helping out each other where required.
Conventional teaching methods of classroom training and teaching have to be replaced by more modern and contemporary educational training methods existing today. Today, the working professionals have to work within their specific customized business domains and read intelligently from this environment, how to utilize to the maximum, the competencies and the skills acquired by them through knowledge and experience they gain through the training. The Wolverhampton MBA program conducted by Westford thus gains a definite advantage where the students are given teaching and training that is customized to specific business issues and problems, and the objective is always to blend the theory with the practical aspects of the business. This is done through in numerous activities as well as experiential learning training aids, where Westford faculties have undergone specialized training in this aspect to train and teach the students. Soft skills are enhanced regularly also through numerous training workshops held by the faculties for all their students.
Westford University College prepares their students for being professional, as well as be a useful member of any organization, by mentoring them on a regular basis right from the time they join Westford. Apart from giving them the basic knowledge of the domain subject, a number of seminars and workshops are organized, including talks from the business experts, taking them to big and small companies on visits to make them see and understand the realities of all companies, organize CSR activities in UAE as well as other countries, and last but not the least get involved with each student to address any other personal or professional problem he/ she may be facing. A healthy mix of all these activities ensures that the student is eventually able to understand and take up challenges that may come his/ her way in the journey ahead. Not only will a student get the coveted ‘MBA Degree’ from the University, he/ she will also get a dual certification in the form of an ‘Executive Diploma in Business Administration’ from one of UK’s largest Awarding Body, Pearson (Assured).
The future looks very bright for Westford, as it cares for ethics and values while imparting educational training in the University of Wolverhampton MBA program. A positive cultural ethos is thus built into its whole working systems, including their faculties and employees, who are their invaluable assets. The education sector is like an unfathomable and infinite diverse ocean, where the sky is the limit and with innovation and creativity one can explore the untapped areas of this vast sector. Change is the only constant beacon, is what Westford wishes to focus upon, as they explore the innumerous possibilities to continuously strive and improve their credentials in future. There is a vast scope for growth in this field, and in spite of the recessionary cycles we may witness regularly, education is a sector which historically has never seen a recession, over the ages its growth story is impeccable to emulate, and the same is going to happen in future too. Westford wants to be a part of this wonderful journey and contribute to the field of education by implementing newer innovative courses and methodologies to benefit the students as well make a meaningful contribution to the business environment by helping them to acquire the employees they exactly want.
The institution’s realization of the future is very positive and together at Westford and with the society at large, they will achieve it.
