A History of Outstanding Results

The Wisdom Business Academy envisions pushing each of its students to challenge themselves. Wisdom has consistently maintained its pass rates well above the Sri Lanka pass rates as a minimum performance level while benchmarking itself to be in par with UK pass rates; while at times surpassing it and going beyond the world pass rates too. According to a representative from the academy, this is not due to sheer luck or magic but an approach that is well-strategised with time-scales and performance standards by each of its lecturers.

Lecturer Evaluation
In order to achieve the best standards of teaching, the academy maintains a forum where each and every student is involved in the process of evaluating each of his or her lecturer. This takes place half-way through the course as well upon completion of the syllabus. This information is archived by Wisdom's management and is used as a means of continuous improvement to bridge any gap between targeted and actual performance, which is stipulated in the action plan given to each lecturer. This method also contributes in serving as a means to monitor how effectively each lecture delivery is received by each student.

Nurturing tomorrow's Leaders
Wisdom inculcates the importance of being well-rounded individuals with a range of extra-curricular activities such as sporting events, social events and welfare activities. This holistic approach to education goes beyond mere classroom experiences as a pre-cursor in launching individuals that are ready to make their mark in the corporate world.

The Wisdom Business Academy has long-been known as an institute that offers its students scholarships on merit-based and need-based. Students with excellent results at A/Ls or those who have obtained island or district placements have often been recipients of this. In addition, Wisdom rewards its students who have achieved excellent results in their CIMA examinations as well as various other activities such as sports, quiz competitions, debates etc.

All revision sessions at Wisdom are conducted free of charge for its students, and a minimum of ten past papers are discussed during this programme. Each answer script submitted is marked individually and each lecturer is assigned to offer personalised feedback to every student.

Wisdom Business Academy is the largest CIMA Business School in Sri Lanka. The priority of Wisdom is to provide solid academic assistance to its students and thereby turn out high-quality management accountants into the industry. This approach is not limited to theory of the syllabus alone but also extends to psychological principles in order to build self confidence and mental preparation in facing the exams successfully.

Wisdom Business Academy is an accredited CIMA Learning Quality Partner with an ISO 9001:2000 certification. It was founded in 2002 on the principle of grooming tomorrow's Management Accountants with financial expertise and strategic ability to take them closer towards career goals and success.
