Cyrus West Field
The name Westfield Business School acknowledges American businessman Cyrus West Field who was one of the three entrepreneurs who laid the first telegraph cable across the Atlantic thus connecting the United States and Europe in 1858. Mr. West Field was a pioneer in the technological development which nowadays allows Westfield Business School to connect the world through a communication platform built on the bases he laid out 150 years ago.
In 2017, Westfield Business School received ISEAD Business Schools and started building upon its educational legacy positioning it as a global American institution and promoting successful agreements with renowned and highly regarded universities such as Cambridge University (UK), Munich University (Germany), Kellogg School of Management (USA), IVEY (Hong Kong), and Colegio de Estudios Superiores – CESA (Colombia) so that its students can attend face-to-face classroom sessions at their facilities.
Thanks to these positive changes, in which a high number of alumni has actively taken part in, Westfield Business School has become international and it is well positioned with the unwavering purpose of offering high quality, accessible, affordable, and blended education, training and developing people on the technical skills necessary to overtake managerial positions, as well as human beings with the competences to lead the challenges of a complex world.
Westfield Business School joins efforts with Miami Executive MBA for the Americas at University of Miami and the School of Business at Texas University in Brownsville (UT-Brownsville) to be a pioneer American institution offering an MBA entirely in Spanish (Maestria en Administracion de Negocios).
