" It has been an immense pleasure and a great privilege for me to have the opportunity of following the recognized MHRM Masters Degree Program at a prestigious university like the University of Kelaniya. Undoubtedly, the well-known factor, the quality of the Degree programs offered at the University of Kelaniya, persuaded me to choose it to qualify my career. Having self-evaluated since the day I started the program, I realized that there is a vast development in my career and in my personal life. Mainly I learned that the best concept to finding solutions for HR-related problems is from the concept of "People Management" instead of form Human Resource Management and have applied it in my daily activities successful end results were obvious"
