By popular demand, SLIIT, the prestigious degree awarding institute has commenced the February intake following the release of the 2016 GCE A/Level examination results.

Each stage is designed to fit into a particular industry segment in order to meet industry requirements. 

“Last year, SLIIT had the unique distinction of being recognised as the first higher education institution in the country to have its B.Sc (Hons) Program in IT accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) – an internationally respected benchmark awarded to high quality programs which pave the way to a chartered engineer status. We serve to ensure that all our academic programs are continuously upgraded and re-engineered to meet the changing needs of the industry and country,” commented SLIIT President and CEO Professor Lalith Gamage.

Modern Business management calls for a multi-disciplinary approach, hence the four year BBA.
