CIPM and Horizon Campus MOU to Enhance Opportunities for Students
CIPM Sri Lanka – the Nation’s leader in human resource management and Horizon Campus, one of the leading private higher education institutions in Sri Lanka recognized by the University Grants Commission with an annual intake of over 1100 students, entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to cooperate in academic affairs which will be mutually beneficial to students of both institutions. The MOU was signed on 10th August 2020 by Jayantha Amerasinghe-President, CIPM Sri Lanka and Upul Daranagama-Chairman, Horizon Campus at a ceremony held at CIPM head office “HR House” in Colombo 5 in the presence of officials representing both CIPM and Horizon Campus.
The MOU will, amongst others, enable both CIPM and Horizon Campus to expand their business opportunities while extending reciprocity towards the other by providing concessions for staff and students in respect of recognition of appropriate courses offered by each other. It will also encourage staff and students of each to follow the curriculum offered by the other.
