Stability
NSBM is an independent and self financing body which comes under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Skills Development. National School of Business Management (NSBM) is the newest Degree School operated by NIBM. NIBM acts as a feeder to NSBM as those who finish their advance diplomas are able to continue their degree programme at NSBM. We have linked up with both local and international universities in order to give the best of education for our students. We are looking forward to open a fully fledged university in Pitipana- Homagama in the near future over 25 acres of land with all facilities and be first of its kind.

Accreditations from world class universities
NSBM consists of three schools, namely the School of Business, the School of Computing and the School of Engineering. All three specialised streams have established partnerships with world class universities.
NSBM already offers courses from the University College Dublin (UCD) of Ireland, the Limkokwing University of Malaysia and Plymouth

University of UK
International standards and best practices
To ensure that courses at NSBM are on par with our partner universities, international best practices and standard operating procedures (SOP’s) applicable to education establishments are implemented to all operational aspects at NSBM, throughout the year.
NSBM’s operating procedures are audited by officials of international accreditation bodies, who physically visit NSBM, to verify that our in-house standards are on par with internationally accepted operating standards. The standard operating procedures for education establishments apply to many elements that directly impact the quality of education provided by the establishment. These elements include the number of contact hours, the grading system, the examination setting and marking system, the credit system, and security systems to ensure that certificates issued by NSBM.

The implementation of these standards is what ensures an international standard of education for NSBM students that cannot be replicated by many other establishments in the country.
Opportunity to share the knowledge of international experts
As part of maintaining our internal quality standards on par with our partner universities, nearly 50% of the lectures for degree courses at NSBM will be conducted by professors from our partner universities. These experts will be flown in to Sri Lanka to deliver their lectures, to ensure that NSBM students receive the same standard of education as students in the UK and/or Malaysia. In the case of Masters Courses at NSBM, nearly 90% of lectures are conducted by foreign lecturers from our affiliate universities.

This process also ensures that NSBM students gain international exposure in their area of study, through practical examples and case studies from foreign as countries, as well as local examples. In addition, NSBM students will have the opportunity of first hand communications with international experts. This system of teaching broadens the students’ attitudes and outlooks, while also enhancing their knowledge.

Nationally and internationally recognised degrees from experienced higher education institutes
Degree courses offered by NSBM’s School of Business, School of Computing and School of Engineering are properly accredited by the relevant authorities and are recognised both nationally and internationally. NSBM’s partnering higher education establishments have been selected with great care to ensure not only modern curricula but also experience in each field of education. As a result NSBM degrees and Masters Courses are non-traditional courses that offer higher employment opportunities. For instance, we offer courses in areas such as logistics; tourism and interior design, that are not offered within the traditional education system but which are in high demand both locally and internationally. Therefore, NSBM students have much higher employment opportunities, not just in Sri Lanka but also in other parts of the world.

Our degrees have been selected to ensure not only high quality of education but also high returns for students, potential employers and the country as a whole. As such, our degrees develop not only academic skills of students, but also their conceptual skills and interpersonal skills and attitudes.

Total higher education solutions under one roof
Through NSBM’s linkage with NIBM, we are able to provide continuity of education up to postgraduate level. NSBM’s degree courses have also been designed to accommodate students from the Advanced Level standard. Therefore, NSBM can provide students with an uninterrupted educational path from the Advanced levels, up to their degree and their postgraduate degree.

Another unique feature regarding higher education at NSBM, is the introduction of ‘cross disciplinary study’ opportunities for young people in Sri Lanka, across NSBM’s three faculties. ‘Cross disciplinary studies’ refers to students to taking on different courses, from different fields of expertise, or mixing different fields of education. For instance, management students at NSBM will be able to include IT and engineering subjects into their degree course. This allows students to major in two or even three subjects.

Currently, cross disciplinary studies is the modern trend in education, as it facilitates higher employment opportunities and broadens the knowledge base of students, while allowing students to design their degree course according to their preference.

Unmatched quality
At NSBM, we maintain the same quality management systems that are maintained by our partner universities in the UK, Ireland and Malaysia. NSBM internal quality assurance systems are audited annually by international accreditation bodies to ensure consistent application of quality standards throughout the year.

A pathway for higher studies in the UK
Through our partnerships with the British higher education system, we are able to ensure safe and secure transition of education from Sri Lanka to the UK.

While NSBM degree students can complete their entire degree in Sri Lanka, we have also provided students with the option of transferring to the UK after completing the first year, or the second year of the degree in Sri Lanka. As a result, we ensure exit and entry points for students at all stages of their degree.

Currently NSBM has partnered with two leading higher education establishments, the University College Dublin (UCD) of Ireland and Plymouth University.

Opportunity to benefit from a future oriented higher education
Our aspiration is to create future leaders for the country with the skills, knowledge and attitudes to drive Sri Lanka into the next level of development. Our objective is to shape the future of business and industry in Sri Lanka by creating entrepreneurs, innovative thinkers and young people who are able to practically apply their academic knowledge. Our aim is to create not only ‘thinkers’ but also ‘doers,’ who will contribute towards Sri Lanka’s future.

Therefore, our degree courses and higher education partners have been selected with a future orientation in mind. Not only do we ensure the most updated courses but we also invest in the latest teaching methodologies and modern equipment.
