NSBM Phase 2
The promising journey of NSBM Green University instils unwavering confidence in its future. The future journey and its effects will undoubtedly surpass the achievements of the past, gradually paving the way towards the vision of being the best-performing graduate school in Sri Lanka and being recognised internationally. The university’s strategic leadership has driven the university to its present success and has succeeded in taking significant strides in shaping its future. Phase 2 developments currently in progress will be a key driver of the university’s future growth to further expand its impact on the world at large.
NSBM Green University, since its very inception, was planned for a total area of 50 acres of land. While Phase 1 was in operation with substantial growth achieved in a shorter period of time, the university realised the need for further expansion with the available opportunities in the market in multiple domains in line with the strategic plan of the university.
To capitalise on identified opportunities and also to cater for the expansion requirements, another 15 acres of land adjoining the current project was acquired from the Urban Development Authority on 30-year lease and prepared plans for Phase 2 of NSBM Green University. A crucial aspect of Phase 2 is the reliance on internally generated excess funds for each phase of development. The development process is well underway, and will be completed on an incremental basis of priority, initially being given to fund-generating development activities considering the self-financing nature of the organisation.
Considering the emerging requirements, market developments and further expansion requirements of Phase 1 of the project, the master plan for Phase 2 consists of the following main developments.
