Department of Accountancy

The Department of Accountancy is established in year 1999 and it is one of the leading departments in the Faculty of Commerce & Management Studies, University of Kelaniya with the 20 years of academic excellence. Having identified the fastest growing demand for the Accountancy related study courses and with the industry reputation gained through vivid collaborations, Department of Accountancy (DoA) firmly believes that it has a responsibility in continuously upgrading knowledge and educating people who engage in the field of accounting and finance.

Higher Diploma in Business Accounting

DoA wishes to offer Higher Diploma in Business Accounting (HDip(BAcc)) to address the need of the students who have not reached higher education in this field and to proceed with this discipline. Since there is a growing demand for such a programme from the experienced entry level and mid-level accountants, DoA has identified this program as a complementary qualification to reach higher education in this field. Then this program would be an extension program for the students who desire to become specialized mid-level professionals in accountancy and finance and in turns train students in meeting the rising complexities of accounting requirements.
