Guest Lecture on Importance of Soft Skills Development

The guest lecture on ‘Importance of Soft Skills for an Accounting undergraduate’ of the guest lecture series under Management and Personal Capacity Skills Development Program was successfully held on 18th December, 2019. Mr. Channa Gunawardana, Chief Executive Officer Dankotuwa Porcelain PLC, conducted this session, for the Second year students of the department.

This session was of great importance to the students, as they undergo a two-year internship as a compulsory component of their degree program. The content of the session enlightened the students on the aspects that they need to improve, in order to step out into the corporate world as a fully-fledged undergraduate.

Also, the students were able to acquire an understanding as to how their soft skills should be further modified to present themselves as useful to the job market, without forgetting the fact that soft skills are bound tightly with humanity.
