As traditional academic departments are burdened with undergraduate education and other academic activities related to their fields of specialization, the creation of this new unit within the Faculty could be considered a proper response to the demand of the day. The main objective of the Postgraduate & Mid-career Development Unit (PGMCDU) is to develop, organize and ensure the smooth functioning of postgraduate and mid-career development programmes for executive and managerial staff of modern day organizations with the ultimate goal of enhancing managerial capabilities for the betterment of our society. At present, the PGMCDU conducts several programmes such MBA, MBA in Finance, MBA in HRM, MBA in Marketing, MBA in International Business, EMBA, and Executive Diploma in Business Administration (EDBA). In addition to the regular Master’s and Diploma programmes, tailor made training programmes on management are also organized by this unit to train the employees of any particular organization on request.

In 2016 we are introducing new MBA programmes which comply with the Sri Lanka Qualifications Framework.

This unit is staffed with a Unit Coordinator, Programme Coordinators and supporting staff. While the Unit Coordinator gives the academic and administrative leadership to the overall activities of the unit, each programme coordinator gives academic leadership and is directly responsible for the smooth functioning of the activities of the programme under his or her purview.
