Auston Institute of Management has partnered London South Bank University to deliver new undergraduate and postgraduate programs in business management, human resources, marketing, banking and finance, and business technology.

Auston is a branch campus from the Singapore parent company established in 1996. In 2010, Auston Celyon was established at 534, Galle Road and has since become a leading provider for engineering, business, and computer courses.

London South Bank University is an international university based in London with many ties to other institutes in Greece, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and now Sri Lanka.

Auston Institute of Management Managing Director Michael Lin said: “It is a pleasure to partner a new university who has a common mission – to find successful niche areas in which we can grow together. London South Bank University is that partner for us.”

London South Bank University Pro Dean Faculty of Business Professor Geoff Elliott added, “It is the intention of London South Bank University to partner institutes around the world that will contribute to our international portfolio. We are happy to be in Sri Lanka and to work with Auston to make this a regional education centre for local and international students.”

Starting soon will be degrees in Business Management, Business Information Technology and a Masters Program in International Banking and Finance.

The Business Management will allow students to opt for specialisation routes between business management, human resource management, and marketing management. The Business Information Technology program is designed to prepare graduates for the next wave of IT development that will undoubtedly be part of the Sri Lanka IT industry.

This partnership also brings for the first time to Sri Lanka, an MSc in International Banking and Finance. This program will be delivered by faculty from the university directly and supported by local academics and tutors from the industry to add local relevance. Local faculty includes professors and doctors from Open University, Sri Jayawardenapura University and Colombo University among others.

Students on all the programs will be given access to the university resources just like students at the London campus.

Interested candidates for the above programs should contact Ranjith at 0718 734 222 or visit their campus at 534 Galle Road or email [email protected] for more details.
