PIM Director Prof. Ajantha S Dharmasiri emphasised the importance of assisting the State sector and most importantly Sri Lanka Customs in his address

The Postgraduate Institute of Management (PIM), the nation’s management mentor has in recent years tailor-made its MBA programs to suit the specific requirements of some State sector institutions dedicated to enforce revenue and social protection laws of the country. 

One such institution PIM joined in fulfilling this objective is Sri Lanka Customs. In 2016 PIM launched one of its newest additions, MBA in Customs and International Trade (MBA-CIT) to cater to the specific requirements of Sri Lanka Customs.  Considering the impact this program had on the overall efficiency of Sri Lanka Customs, its management was eager to nominate a further batch of officers for a similar program. Its outcome was the launching of the second MBA-CIT recently.  

Customs Director General P.S.M. Charles in her message congratulated the participants of the new batch, and said that the PIM has been the partner for value additions to the customs services since 2008, as the Institute possesses enormous experience in designing the MBA programs to suit different sectors. 

PIM Director Prof. Ajantha S.Dharmasiri in his address emphasised the importance of assisting the State sector and importantly Customs officers, who are responsible for enriching the coffers of the State. Additional Director General of Customs H.P.Jayananda, and Customs Human Resource Development Director Nalika Edirisinghe also participated in the Inauguration. The program was coordinated by PIM Management Consultant Jayantha Newunhella.
