The Postgraduate Institute of Management, the Nation’s Management Mentor, commenced another Master of Public Administration (MPA) programme, for 36 officers of the public sector, recently.

Austin Fernando, Secretary to the President and an alumnus of PIM, who graced the occasion as the chief guest, said that the value of the PIM’s MBA and MPA programmes could be gauged by the PIM’s alumni who thrive successfully in their respective spheres of activity.

Dr. Anil Jasinghe, Director General of Health Services, also an alumnus of PIM, attending the occasion as the Guest of Honour, said that selection to his current position could be directly attributed to the MPA programme he followed at the PIM. Prof. Ajantha S. Dharmasiri, Director, PIM, in his inaugural address said that it is the PIM’s duty and responsibility to develop the public sector officials who serve the country’s core as well as regional administrative centres.

He stressed the significance of outreaching to the peripheries through the “M-learning” platform. Lalith Weeratunga, Visiting Faculty of PIM spoke on the importance of communication to public sector administrators. Dr. Lloyd Fernando, Senior Faculty of PIM delivered the vote of thanks.
