The graduation ceremony of the University of Greenwich was held on 6 November at the Kingsbury Hotel, Colombo. British High Commissioner James Darius was the Chief Guest at the graduation. HNB Chairman Dinesh Weerakkody, delivering the key note at the ceremony, pointed out that “gaining social confidence is a must for young people to progress in an organisation, and furthermore we must never think we are too old to learn. Therefore it is important to invest time and money for continuous learning and development.” This, he said, “is critical for self-sustainability, as well as competitiveness and employability.” 

University of Greenwich International Affairs Director Professor Patel and Pioneer Institute of Business Technology (PIBT) Chairman Dr. Kapila Ranasinghe also addressed the graduation ceremony.
