HEAD’S MESSAGE

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Commerce and Financial Management (DCFM) at the University of Kelaniya. As the founder of the Commerce and Management education at the University of Kelaniya, we value our intellectual capital and utilize traditional as well as contemporary ways and means for the comprehensive development of our student’s personality. Thus every year, the society at large is benefitted with the well equipped academics who can significantly contribute to our nation’s value creation.

We place a greater emphasis on lecturing as well as creating new knowledge.  We conduct undergraduate, postgraduate and focally, extension programmes. At present, approximately 1000 students are pursuing their education under these categories. I believe, the success of the department in reaching the excellence in Commerce and Management education in Sri Lanka, is supported by our physical and human resource capability. In fact, twenty nine academics are serving in the department at present. This includes five Phd holders and eleven doctoral students .

The DCFM includes a wide range of disciplines so that we bring diverse perspectives and approaches. We produce degree holders specializing in areas such as Entrepreneurship, Business Technology, Financial Management and Commerce.

So, I conclude my small note welcoming researchers and students who like to be a part of this exciting environment. Come and join us and be a part of the intellectual stimulation!
