SLIIT offers UK recognised BBA Degrees

The Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT) marked yet another milestone recently, by inaugurating the three-year Special Honours Degree program in Business Management in collaboration with the prestigious Sheffield Hallam University of the United Kingdom.

At a ceremonial launch which took place at the SLIIT Malabe Campus auditorium SLIIT entered into an affiliation with Sheffield Hallam University, one of the United Kingdom's most progressive and innovative universities which is known to have a flexible, business-led approach.

The two institutions will collaborate to enable Sri Lankan students to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration Honours Degree in Business Management from Sheffield Hallam University while continuing to be based in Sri Lanka.

For SLIIT, which already has a well established reputation for its high quality Information Technology study programs, this new partnership represents a turning point towards obtaining international recognition for its Business Administration degree program.

It also creates a pathway for Sri Lankan students to obtain a world-class undergraduate business degree at a very low cost.

The Chairman of the Institute, Prof. Sam Karunaratne in his welcome address referred to the sophistication of global business, mainly due to IT and added that it is natural for SLIIT to diversify into the area of Business Management studies.
