About the Department


The Department of Business Administration is the pioneer in Business Management Education in the university system of Sri Lanka. Since its establishment in 1979, the Department remains the largest academic department of the Faculty of Management Studies and Commerce of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura. At present, the internal student population of the Department is nearly eight hundred undergraduates.

The Department offers a globally competitive four-year special degree in Business Management, B.Sc. Business Administration (Special) Degree, and a three-year external degree, B.Sc. Business Administration (General) External Degree. The special degree of the Department continues to be the top choice for Sri Lankan students seeking rigorous training in theory and practice of business management. The external degree is also highly popular among the students who could not secure an internal placement in a state university.

The curriculum of the Department is designed to prepare students to take leadership roles in the corporate world and to make them sensitive to ethical and social issues and adaptable in the dynamic business environment. It gives students a solid foundation in theory of business management and exposes them to contemporary business practices. The pedagogical approaches adopted in the Department are learner-centred and research-led. See more…
