LAHES, the education arm of LAUGFS Holdings, in a pioneering initiative, has introduced a Professional Diploma in Business Administration.

The unique feature in this diploma is the three-month internship included in the programme.  In addition, the best students of the programme will be offered management trainee positions at LAUGFS.

This distinctive qualification focuses on equipping students with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude for the work environment.

Going beyond classroom learning, the students will be attached to a LAUGFS Group company to follow a three-month internship, where they would gain hands-on experience in a real work environment and also put what they learnt in class, in to practice. The diploma is of six months’ duration.

At the successful completion of the diploma, the outstanding students will be offered employment at LAUGFS as management trainees, where they will be further developed to build a successful career.

LAUGFS is a highly diversified Sri Lankan business conglomerate with 19 subsidiaries. LAHES aims to be an education services provider offering academic, vocational and executive education programmes to students in Sri Lanka and in the Asian region.

 LAHES has a state-of-the-art campus at the evel-22, West Tower, World Trade Centre, Colombo 1.

Commenting on the Diploma, LAHES Director/Chief Executive Officer, Adjunct Associate Professor Vindhya Weeratunga said: “This unique programme aims at producing talent with employable skills and knowledge. In today’s ever changing business landscape, pure book knowledge is not sufficient; having hands-on experience would definitely add great value and such a candidate would have a competitive edge over their counterparts in a job interview. We also want to offer the most promising students employment in our own group of companies. LAUGFS is growing at a rapid pace and there are plenty of opportunities. Joining LAUGFS as a management trainee would be the beginning of a great career for any student.”
