AIA Insurance congratulates Sajini Hansamali Gunasena who topped the batch for the degree in Insurance and Valuation from the Wayamba University. Wayamba University of Sri Lanka is the only campus in the country to offer a Degree in Insurance and Valuation. 

Eleven years ago, AIA partnered with the university to recognise the best amongst the best in insurance studies and since then, AIA has been presenting a scholarship every year to the student with the most outstanding academic performance in the Department of Insurance and Valuation. This year’s winner too will receive a monthly study allowance with a six-month internship program at AIA Sri Lanka. 

AIA Director HR Thushari Perera presented Sajini with a certificate in recognition of her outstanding academic performance and congratulated her on behalf of the company. She said in this regard, “AIA is dedicated to encouraging academic excellence, especially when it is related to insurance studies. We’re happy to extend an internship at AIA Sri Lanka that will expand her horizon in insurance and pave the way for rapid upward mobility in her career.”

Sajini thanked AIA for this recognition and opportunity, saying, “I look forward to my experience at AIA which I am certain will be filled with world-class training. I do value this opportunity at a company of this stature, as I know that AIA Group is the world’s largest life insurance company with over 100 years of experience in protecting lives. I am sure that my learning here will be invaluable and the hands-on experience will give my career a great boost.”

 Sajini’s family along with the senior lecturers from the university joined in congratulating her on this momentous occasion.
