The future of Sri Lanka, and Sri Lankans, lies in its business sector, and in being able to take Sri Lanka global. To compete on the global stage, Sri Lankans need global skills. And this is where the International Learning Academy (ILA) comes in. It takes more than just entrepreneurial spirit to make it in business. You need to know how to manage a business, how to manage people, and how to manage finance.
ILA is the tool you need to develop these skills of business management to build your own trailblazing business and finance career, whether that is as an entrepreneur innovating your field or as a seasoned professional guiding a company to greatness.
In partnership with several leading international leading universities, ILA offers CIMA degrees and doctorates in the field of business management. Some of the programmes offered by ILA include the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) programme in partnership with London International Academy; MA qualifications in International Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Marketing Management, and Project Management in collaboration with the International University of Applied Studies Germany; and two PhD programmes in Business and Management – one from Universiti Tun Abdul Razak Malaysia (UNIRAZAK), and one from Charisma University UK.
ILA’s collaborative partnerships with international universities and comprehensive and diverse curriculum foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship akin to the real world and encourage students to think creatively, take risks and become influential team players and team leaders.
For those still in school and looking to build the right educational base from which to study internationally, ILA, in partnership with London International Academy offers a full Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) program for students in Grades 9 to 12. Most courses are taught at the university preparation level to attend North American universities.
