"Westford SoM's classes are more enriching unlike a normal 'strict' school like college. There is something special about the staff at Westford SoM. Our professors are absolutely exceptional, supportive and I owe so much to them. Professors were all from either corporates or from other areas, therefore they would 'think' like one of us. Thank you all so much for enlightening me and showing me the path of righteousness to lead this world."
