IPM – the nation’s leader in Human Resources Management (HRM) opened its third regional centre in Kurunegala amidst a large and distinguished gathering including chief guest Wayamba University Vice Chancellor Prof. S.B. J.A. Jayasekera and IPM Sri Lanka President Rohitha Amarapala in the North Western Province recently. 

Kurunegala is one of the fastest growing provincial cities outside Colombo with an abundance of young and aspiring youth who have the potential to contribute significantly to Sri Lanka’s industrial and economic growth. 

The IPM Kurunegala regional centre is located on the Sixth Floor - Jayawansha Building, Colombo Road, Kurunegala and is situated facing the main Colombo-Kurunegala road and has easy access from the Kurunegala main bus stand as well as from the Colombo-Puttalam road.

Kurunegala is a major hub in the North Western Province, which has much potential to offer in terms of HR professionals and students who are keen to make HRM their life career. An education institution of the calibre of IPM can add much value to Kurunegala and its suburbs.     

“In keeping with our mission to open pathways to the HRM profession and raising professional standards through a process of conducting professional examinations, seminars/workshops, conferences, HR consultancy and research studies, we are delighted to open IPM’s third regional centre for the benefit of this rapidly growing township of Kurunegala and suburbs,” said Amarapala.

“Students as well as HR professionals in and around Kurunegala will be able to easily access our regional centre for all of their needs without having to come down to Colombo, thus saving them time as well as money. We believe that opening IPM’s regional centre in Kurunegala will provide a great opportunity for the thousands of students in Wayamba to access our world-class curricula and facilities in order to pursue a career in human resources management,” he added.
“IPM Sri Lanka is a very professional and progressive institute which is going from strength to strength. Its popularity amongst HR professionals as well as students is extremely high. I am confident that as a growing and successful institution, IPM will continue to breed success while adding value to the field of HRM in Sri Lanka,” Prof. Jayasekera added.      

IPM’s Kurunegala regional centre provides the same standards, courses and examinations as the other regional centres in Kandy and Galle and will include comprehensive study and lecture programmes conducted by visiting HR faculty. 

Seminars and workshops for students as well as HR professionals are planned on an ongoing basis. Other facilities such as a modern library stocked with the latest books and journals, air conditioned lecture halls and canteen facilities, etc., are also available.
