It is a 12-month part-time programme which will give students brand management competencies from multiple dimensions.

The DSBM is suitable for marketing and brands career-minded candidates seeking to acquire specific competencies to differentiate themselves from the rest. This programme would appeal to those who are already in marketing, advertising or brand development intending to enhance their skills in brand management.

Students will comprehend the essential competencies of brand building process and managing brand equity in their career.

Commenting about the occasion SLIM President Ruwan Liyanagamage stated, “The power of global brands transcends geographical barriers. These brands are valued at billions of dollars and enjoy the unwavering loyalty of their consumers. I wish the students of DSBM all success and hope that they will one day contribute towards the creation of such global brands in Sri Lanka.”

Seylan Bank PLC DGM and SLIM Past President Tilan Wijeyesekera attended as the guest speaker of the event. Wijeyesekera is a dynamic professional with vast experience in leading local and multinational organisations in diverse industries such as FMCG, banking, insurance, education and financial consultancy.

Therefore he said it is heartening to see such an interest in this field locally.
