It has three main campuses in the UK, with 22,000 students, and is present in 125 countries. The IPM can trace its history back to the late 1950’s, and is the pioneering HRM institute in Sri Lanka. Currently, it is the only institution in the country providing a professional qualification in HRM.

President IPM, Air Vice Marshal Rohitha Ranasinghe, CEO IPM, Dyan Seneviratne, Course Leader UoW, Andrew Hambler, Dissertation Consultant UoW, Shaukath Ali, and Chairman BCAS, Abdul Rahuman, were present at the ceremony.
Addressing the media briefing on this occasion the President IPM, Air Vice Marshal Rohitha Ranasinghe, brought attention to fact that IPM has, in its long fifty-odd years of existence, strived to enhance the skills and the knowledge of the human resource management sector of the country. He also pointed out that since mankind is facing an era where human resources, especially when it comes to creativity and skill, play an imperative role in development and economic sustenance, the IPM has sought to provide exceptional knowledge and skills in the sector.
Air Vice Marshal Rohitha Ranasinghe further stated that one of the key challenges faced by white-collar workers is selecting a business or industry areas which are growing and in demand.
