He said that education institutions should not be limited to academic purposes. Knowledge alone is not power. The NSBM will be an excellent institution which produces managers and leaders with good qualities.

'The NSBM will be set up as a fully affiliated body of the National Institute of Business Management (NIBM) on a proposal made by Youth Affairs and Skills Development Minister Dullas Alahapperuma.

The NSBM is the degree awarding school of the National Institute of Business Management(NIBM) and it is a fully owned subsidiary of the NIBM which offers undergraduate and post graduate degree programmes in the fields of management, computer and engineering.

According to Chief Executive Officer Dr E. A. Weerasinghe, the NSBM aims to introduce novelty and innovation into the higher education sector. The NSBM offers programmes aimed at producing skilled graduates who can uplift the performance of business and the economy and attempts to play a distinctive role in furthering the nation's economic development.

Degree programmes offered by the NSBM are designed to cater to the requirements of the business community and the economy.

"We have invested in state-of-the-art learning facilities to provide undergraduates with a new experience in learning and sharing knowledge. Our strategic plan for the next five years in establishing an array of academic programmes and facilities will further strengthen our journey towards servicing the field of higher education," the Chief Executive Officer said.

The CEO said the NSBM Academic Department consists of members with strong academic backgrounds, appropriately blended with industry experience.
