Message from the Head of the Department

Welcome to the Department of Business Management, Faculty of Business Studies and Finance, Wayamba University of Sri Lanka. The field of management has revolutionized the world over the years passed by focusing the sustainable utilization of resources and fostering the human well-being. The modern society is heavily dependent upon the organizations for its survival and prosperity. Management is the paramount organ of the modern institutions and it creates their performance while assuring the long-term survival. Today, management is inevitable not only for the organizations but also for fostering social and family lives of the people.

The Department of Business Management offers its programmes at Diploma, Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. The B.Sc. (Special) Degree in Business Management develops the undergraduates with an advanced knowledge, productive skills, positive attitudes, and the constructive mind-set that are indispensable to be   effective Managers in the modern local or global contexts. In addition, for our well talented and enthusiastic undergraduates of the Department, we have opened a number of avenues for challenging opportunities of getting exposed to the real-world problems of varying complexity by offering them with a well- monitored industrial training in their final year. The Department not only encourages and empowers its undergraduates to be visionary-oriented and self-motivated towards success but also inspires them to create their own start-up companies as well, grounded on what they have learnt and developed during their stay in the University.

The Postgraduate level courses in Management, offered by the Department cater to the present-day requirements of the Managers at public, corporate and non-profit oriented organizations and also of the entrepreneurs to develop their competencies to be successful as Corporate Level Managers. The major asset of the Department, that is instrumental to achieve its objectives, is the highly qualified, well-experienced, exceptionally dedicated and positively motivated members of the staff, performing as a well cohesive team.

We welcome industrial partners for long-term research collaborations in management-related expanses with the expectation of solving their managerial problems in a consistent way, which would be the key for them to maintain sustainability and competitiveness in the long-run. Further, we invite them to get hand in hand with the Department by offering training placements for our undergraduates to release them to the society as well-qualified and skilled graduates with a broader knowledge, skills and human qualities.
