As much as the unique blue building stands out among the many structures of the Station Road of Kollupitiya, Wisdom Business Academy stands out as a giant among the many institutes in the field of higher education in Sri Lanka. From its humble beginnings 15 years back, Wisdom Business Academy rose the steps to become the largest CIMA business school in the island, training next generation professionals for the corporate world. 

Responsible for over 70% of the CIMA population of Sri Lanka, in 2012 Wisdom took the initiative of delivering its students an avenue for globally acclaimed academic qualifications from Robert Gordon University, UK which was recently awarded the Teaching Efficiency Framework (TEF) Gold accreditation from the United Kingdom Government, one of the highest honours bestowed on an educational institute in the UK. 

Taking a step further in the course of becoming the largest business school of Sri Lanka as per the mission of the institute, this year, Wisdom entered a formal agreement through which the institute was formally recognised as a Local Access Point of London School of Marketing (LSM), UK one of the largest private education bodies in the United Kingdom catering to over 15,000 or more students around the globe. London School of Marketing as a member of the Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS) offers a range of academic qualifications in the fields of Marketing, Business, Finance and Management, validated and approved by the industry leading professional bodies including EduQual and CIM. 

Over 3,500 corporate companies have chosen LSM to provide the necessary skills to their employees including Barclays, Adidas, BBC and Apple to name just a few. Maintaining 95% pass rates in all courses offered since the inception in 2002, London School of Marketing in association with the respective universities and colleges have played a major role in shaping the future of the corporate world.

In accordance with the professional relationship with LSM, Wisdom Business Academy was able to launch a Master in Business Administration (MBA) awarded by the University of Northampton redefining the versatile exposure that Wisdom provides its students. The MBA program will commence this September with 31 August concluding the registration window for this globally acclaimed and renowned academic qualification. The University of Northampton has also been awarded the TEF Gold accreditation by the United Kingdom Government for the superior standards they have preserved in delivering their academic programs. 

The University was shortlisted for three years in a row in the ‘Business School of the Year’ category of the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards and it was also recognised by Higher Education Statistics Agency, UK as number one for employability amongst full-status universities in England in 2012.  

The MBA requires a total number of 180 credits out of which 120 credits will be awarded for completion of CIMA, granting CIMA complete students and members the opportunity for direct entry to the second phase of the program which carries two separate modules; Critical issues in Business and Business Research Project for which they carry 10 and 50 credits respectively. The MBA consists of a course duration of six months in which six workshops would be held on weekday evenings allocated in a manner that wouldn’t disrupt academic or personal commitments. The academic qualification is fully recognised by the University of Grants Commission (UGC) of Sri Lanka and will be awarded as an Internal Degree program from the University of Northampton from which both the degree certificate and the transcript will be awarded. Online library access is also provided while in the meantime students would be given access to the award-winning learning platform of London School of Marketing. Attractive student loan schemes are available as well on the investment. 

Wisdom Business Academy has always stolen the spotlight as an institute that executes nothing but perfection. Anteceding a successful history of 15 years, Wisdom has proven her worth in diversified arenas. The well reputed and professional lecture panel will conduct six workshops on behalf of the first intake of the MBA programme with the same skill and care that they have executed all these years while preserving the international standards stipulated by the awarding body. In order to ensure supreme quality and individual attention, seats are limited for this MBA program and thus the management encourages to reserve your seat to avoid any disappointments. The helpful and dedicated staff team at Wisdom can be reached via 0112370995/6 for any further clarification or reservations of seats.

“The journey of winning the world starts with one tiny step”. Let the skilful and caring team at Wisdom help you to keep that one step as a giant leap of your future.
