“My graduate programme was a phenomenal experience, and it didn’t stop at the end of the two years! As a business graduate I was given the opportunity to work with customers from various countries including the US and Japan. This enabled me to develop a strong commercial base, more importantly a cultural awareness that you just can’t get from a text book! I also attained an MBA with Distinction – a professional dream I couldn’t have achieved without Westinghouse’s continuing support and encouragement to their graduates”.
