Wisdom Business Academy is among the largest CIMA Business School in Sri Lanka. The priority of the Wisdom is to provide solid academic assistance to its students. Its lecturer panel has time and again proved their worth not only in helping students academically but also psychologically in boosting their self-esteem and confidence, which does contribute immensely, in mental preparation for their exams.
In its focus to function as the breeding ground of employable management accountants, the Wisdom Business Academy is composed of both academic and non-academic personnel. A dedicated Student Registrar and a Student Coordinator have been appointed by Wisdom management to add value to its course delivery, maintenance and development. Both these personnel are readily available to students as well as their parents, should they require further assistance before and during the progression of the course. These personnel will work alongside the lecture panel to keep student morale and success high.
Wisdom's lecturer panel consists of individuals that personify the latest requirements set by CIMA-UK. Each individual possesses sound education and professional qualifications and tacit industry insight that can accrue from only practical work experience in the industries and organisations they have and do work in. This industry insight and expertise benefits Wisdom's students as it encourages contextualising practice theories taught at lectures, in that it teaches the process of how to think in a real business scenario and hones individual decision making skills. Wisdom's iconic lecturer panel takes a student from foundation level right up to the final stage of CIMA with tips and nuances in the preparation and performance at exams.
Due to its effective teaching methods and its unwavering attitude to focus solely on CIMA, Wisdom's effectiveness at delivering success stories at exams is evidenced through the large number of student enrolments it attracts at every intake. The academy practises meticulous organising to ensure that each and every student is evaluated and given individual feedback on his/her progress and this formula continues to reap enormous results in terms of performance.
Wisdom's initiative of a Parents' Day is a proven success story that streamlines student progress and acts as a discussion forum that helps preparing for further levels of CIMA. Parental feedback is taken into account while an assessment of students is outlined with suggestions for their improvement.
The Wisdom Business Academy maintains a lecture evaluation process which involves the participation of each student. This takes place mid-way through the course as well as at the end of it. The management aims to take account student feedback on the style of lecture delivery and its effectiveness. Records are maintained for each lecturer and any gap between the targeted and actual performance is bridged by an action plan - that modifies teaching methodology to ensure student satisfaction.
The academy conducts comprehensive revision sessions free of charge with two exams in class and the option for unlimited mock exams for each student to take at its computer lab.
