“If there is anything that the SLIIT Business School taught me to be great at, its ‘versatility’. I am one of the few to have a truly diverse global career spanning a multitude of sectors from agriculture, automobile, sustainable energy, waste management and construction to name a few. Tutelage under a disciplined academic panel set me up for a great career. Whilst we were taught sound theoretical knowledge in various business management disciplines, we were also groomed to excel in soft skills like negotiating and listening, and I cannot emphasize how important they were in making me effective. I am honored to have received both at the SLIIT Business School.
I am also honored to have brushed shoulders with great peers who now hold illustrious positions in every business sector in Sri Lanka. Although it's been close to a decade since we parted ways from the campus, we are a close family at heart and help each other both professionally and personally.
I am forever grateful to the SLIIT Business School for making me into the person I am today, and I wish aspiring students get the same opportunity as we did to be high-capacity individuals driven by excellence”.
