Profile

In 1992, I was selected to a post of College Lecturer in the Sabaragamuwa Affiliated University College, which was subsequently raised to the status of a State University where I now hold the positions of the Head of the Department of Marketing Management, Director of the Center for Open and Distance Learning and Senior Student Counsellor. Hence, I have been serving this institute – Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka – since its commencement in 1996 where I have gathered much knowledge and skills on the practical aspects of managing a Faculty/Department/Center of a university.  In addition to my normal duties as a Senior Lecturer (Gr. I) and Head of the Department of Marketing Management and the Director of the Center for Open and Distance Learning, I have either jointly or independently organized, conducted and participated in several seminars and workshops which contributed tremendously for my career development and job satisfaction.

During my tenure of services, apart from holding positions such as Head of the Department, Dean of the Faculty, Director of the Center for Open and Distance Learning, Acting Director of the Physical Education,  I have been teaching various course units namely Accounting, Management Process, Principles of Management, Research Methods, Project Management, Business Mathematics, Business Statistics, Operational Research, Quantitative Techniques and Human Resource Management for different Degree and Diploma programmes while providing guidance especially for final year students with their research work and practical training reports.

As the Dean of the Faculty, I was able to establish a new lecture theatre complex for the Faculty of Management Studies.
