NSBM Green University Celebrating 5 Years of Success

On 26th October 2021, NSBM Green University celebrates 5 victorious years in its remarkable success journey – navigating across the boundaries and re-shaping the Sri Lankan higher education sphere.

Well Wishes

The main objective of a country's higher education is to fortify the human resource of the country with a set of multi-skilled personnel knowledgeable in critical thinking.

To accomplish this, we should enable opportunities to pursue higher education for the student community of the country that has lost the opportunity to enter into state universities even if they qualify after GCE Advanced Level examination. As long as there are no opportunities and the environment is not conducive to pursue courses that are curated on global job market requirements, the youth unemployment of the country will not be resolved.

The NSBM University which has identified these requirements has become an active institution in the higher education sector of the country that produces professionals suited to the global job market since it provides lasting solutions to the issue of unemployment.

As a self-financed institution being operated under the State Ministry of Skills Development, Vocational Education, Research & Innovations, it is commendable to note how the University is achieving its vision, mission and objectives gradually.

Without being limited to providing education to the children of the nation, the NSBM Green University is making a direct contribution to strengthen the national economy by expanding the higher educational opportunities available for foreign students.

I offer my best wishes to the NSBM Green University on the occasion of celebrating the Fifth Anniversary of its successful journey, and I also extend wishes to continue the endeavours to empower the youth generation of the country with knowledge, skills and attitudes. Gotabaya Rajapaksa President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka

President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka

I am pleased to send this message on the occasion of the 5th anniversary celebration of the NSBM Green University. This is an important achievement in its short but triumphant journey.

This milestone offers a remarkable opportunity for all of us to reflect upon the success of NSBM and the contribution it has made to Sri Lanka’s higher education sector since its establishment in 2011 and the opening of NSBM Green University in 2016. While being a self-financed higher education institute under direct government supervision, NSBM Green University has undoubtedly added a new dimension to national university education with its high-standard global education here in Sri Lanka. Bestowing the nation and region the first-ever green university in South Asia, NSBM has taken an interest in shouldering the national responsibility of driving the nation towards a knowledge-based economy. It is this unfailing sense of responsibility that strengthens its success on its path towards conquering the global arena.

In this journey of five victorious years, NSBM Green University has made an immense contribution to the future generations of our nation. Along with new opportunities, NSBM has created an unparalleled international university setting through modern pedagogical approaches and state-of-the-art facilities. In view of this, I believe that NSBM has become the epitome of standardization and modernization in higher education, which uplifts its status as a responsible higher education institute. For Sri Lanka, it has constantly been a place that bridges the gap between the high demand for Sri Lankan university education and the lack of capacity. By creating local pathways for both Sri Lanka’s youth and international students through world-renowned degree programmes and a holistic university experience, NSBM Green University has placed Sri Lanka on the global map of quality higher educational opportunities.

I personally witnessed and was greatly impressed by the university complex and the international standards maintained at the NSBM Green University. The modernist, progressive and self-reliant approach of NSBM is definitely praiseworthy. This major project that commenced in 2011 has reached beyond its own goals and expectations in a short span of time and created its own benchmark of success.

I take this opportunity to congratulate the entire NSBM community as you mark five years of excellence. You have every right to be proud of the journey you have come on thus far and be excited about the institution’s future potential. I am certain that NSBM will continue its successful journey for many more years to come by gifting the nation a community of globally competent graduates, gearing the nation towards sustainable development.

Vice Chancellor's Review

NSBM Green University, the nation’s premier degree awarding institute, is the oasis of the Sri Lankan higher education system that constantly strives to nurture the nation’s youth generation and enrich them with knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to transform the country towards sustainable development. As the Vice-Chancellor of this prestigious university, it fills me with immense pleasure and pride to reflect upon our journey of success on this remarkable occasion that NSBM Green University celebrates its five victorious years.

In Sri Lanka, one’s path towards acquiring a higher education qualification is extremely competitive. This has resulted in a higher percentage of Sri Lankan students who qualify for university education annually are being left out as they lack the opportunity to secure a place. Fulfilling their dreams and bridging this gap of Sri Lankan university education, NSBM (National School of Business Management) officially emerged in the year 2011 as a self-financed project. With NSBM City Campus, which was established in the heart of Nugegoda, a journey of thousand miles began there. The success City Campus achieved in a short span of time further assured the NSBM management about the greatest potentials of the NSBM Green University project, which at the time was underway.

On 26th October 2016, our journey reached its crowning milestone. Turning a new page in Sri Lankan higher education, NSBM Green University, an architectural masterpiece built in Pitipana, Homagama, was ceremonially bestowed upon the benefit of the Sri Lankan youth. That marked the opening of the first-ever green university in South Asia and a 26-acre state-of-the-art university complex with international standard facilities. Since then, over these five victorious years, we have stayed true and dedicated to providing excellence in unmatched and unparallel education and professional practice for the young generation to transform the country into a knowledge driven economy.

As of today, NSBM has gone the extra mile to continue our service to the nation as a degree-awarding institute ratified by the University Grants Commission of Sri Lanka and being affiliated to world-renowned top-ranked universities such as University of Plymouth, UK and Victoria University, Australia. These varied and diversified internationally accredited degree programmes offered at NSBM are a favourable alternative to the large number of students who opt for overseas education, thereby retaining much of the foreign exchange that is drained out of the country annually and earning a substantial amount of foreign currency by attracting international students who are drawn to western education institutes.

When reminiscing on our journey so far, NSBM Green University has evolved in quality and quantity, becoming a leading university among the other higher education institutes in Sri Lanka and being internationally recognized. Currently, the university achieves approximately 2,700 new enrolments per year and owns a 11,000+ student population studying for 40+ undergraduate and postgraduate study programmes under 14 academic departments of the 4 faculties of study: Faculty of Business, Faculty of Computing, Faculty of Engineering, and Faculty of Science. Further, taking our green university concept to the next level, NSBM recently embarked on Phase II of the NSBM Green University project. This latest ongoing construction project in another 15-acre land adjoining the existing university premises pushes the physical boundaries of NSBM while expanding the opportunities and facilities we offer.

In the success journey of NSBM, we keep pride in the in the well knowledged and skillful globally employable graduates produced each passing year. Since our inception in 2016 until today, approximately 8000 graduates nourished under the wings of NSBM have been privileged to open their own doors of success and have grown up to be citizens capable of positively and significantly contribute to society at large.

Celebrating this defining milestone of NSBM, I make this an opportunity to express my gratitude towards all the government officials, international representatives, NSBM Student community, parents and finally, the society at large, on behalf of all of us at NSBM. Moreover, the commitment and the contribution of my exceptional staff of NSBM, who made the university strong to strive constantly, should always be commended.

In conclusion, following our intellectual curiosity to inspire generations of students, researchers and academics and to remain at the forefront of global higher educational institutes, we keep constantly striving to build momentum on this success we have achieved so far. We hope there are exciting times ahead, and we wait for this victorious journey to continue for many decades to come. Prof. E. A. Weerasinghe Vice-Chancellor - NSBM Green University

As a university that consists of modern amenities and provides a global university experience to its students, NSBM pledges and stay true to offer its students a holistic 360-degree university experience, creating a unique platform that brings together academic excellence and real-world expertise for its students to develop and grow as well rounded individuals. Enriching student life activities beyond the classroom setting, NSBM makes sure its students have access to a plethora of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities at the University.

Co-curricular activities

In an attempt to produce graduates who are competent in merging theoretical knowledge with hands-on experiences, NSBM has established several subject circles and other subject related clubs and associations under the unswerving guidance and support of the four faculties.

Extra-curricular activities

Envisaging a student community groomed with high potentials and versed personalities, NSBM encourages its students to engage in a variety of extra-curricular activities. The University offers over 50 student-led clubs, and societies ranging from sports clubs, activity-based clubs, religious societies, and international clubs and the Student Affairs Unit of NSBM organizes several annual events with the participation and engagement of students.

At NSBM, the students are granted the invaluable opportunity to be learnt from an academically and professionally qualified panel of lecturers.

NSBM in the service of humanity

As a responsible higher education institute and a self-financed institute, NSBM holds a sense of social responsibility to serve its community: students, parents, staff, partners, stakeholders, the immediate neighbourhood and finally, the society at large. As much as the University understands the importance of nurturing its community, it acts out with more empathy to ensure their social, economic, and environmental well-being.
