“Being a student of Westminster has opened a whole new world to me, in terms of education, of knowing different cultures and people and of really enjoying my time studying”.

E Gulash Koken, Turkey, International Business and Management MA – 2002

“The international character of my study at the University of Westminster specifically addressed my needs in terms of quality and flexibility. The diversity of the programme prepared me for face to face interaction with different kinds of people, thoughts, values and cultures in business the world over.”
