IMSL's initiative to help aspiring managers

Certificate course in Business & Management ( CBM ) to be launched in January
The Institute of Management of Sri Lanka (IMSL) the apex national body in the field of professional management in Sri Lanka, dedicated to promoting professional management in the country, recently celebrated an important milestone of completing 25 years of service to the country. Having been inaugurated on 31st July 1986, IMSL was the first Management Association in Sri Lanka to be incorporated by an Act of Parliament on 17th December 1988.

Today, IMSL is a full member of the Asian Association of Management Organizations (AAMO), as Sri Lanka’s sole representative in AAMO. IMSL aims to play a catalytic role in inspiring managers to be leaders by providing them a forum for sharing knowledge and best practices while promoting the highest standards of professional conduct and ethical values amongst members.

Their latest venture is to launch a Certificate Course in Business & Management to cater to the needs of young managers who aspire to go up the corporate ladder and IMSL's subcommittee on Education, headed by Dr Sarath Kodituwakku and assisted by Ms Buddhini Dankanda, is planning to commence this programme by January 2012.
