What students think about Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

    Vanessa De Silva, Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda

    Testimonial from Vanessa De Silva, Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda, student at Westminster Business School, London
    As an international student I was looking for a Master's program that would offer me an experience and education that I could utilise worldwide. The University of Westminster was a simple choice for me knowing the superior level of education, top quality professors and fabulous location offered. The culturally diverse group of classmates held various levels of professional experience which enriched my learning as we continued to develop and challenge each other.

    Having completed the MA Human Resource Management specialising in Employee Relations I have acquired an education which lead me to a fulfilling career rather than a short-term job. As a Management Consultant in an Employment Services firm I work with local and international clients and have continued to develop my practical experience in employee relations, policy development, recruitment and performance management.

    Testimonial from Andrew Behles, Trainee Chartered Accountant, Nexia Smith & Williamson, student at Westminster Business School, London
    As a US national with relatively little experience in international accounting standards and practices prior to beginning the course, the WBS Msc in Finance and Accounting provided me with a useful blend of accounting theory and practice that has well equipped me for securing a job in international audit in the UK upon graduation. And with up to six exemptions from ACCA exams, its easy to see a quick and tangible return on investment.

    Owen Coughlan, RBS Global Banking & Markets

    Testimonial from Owen Coughlan, RBS Global Banking & Markets, student at Westminster Business School, London
    A Distinction in my Masters at the University of Westminster gave me the knowledge and confidence to gain a coveted job in an investment bank.
