The London School of Commerce (LSC) Group of Colleges has opened a branch in Sri Lanka offering graduate and post-graduate courses.
The branch, called the British School of Commerce (BSC), will offer courses for both Sri Lankan and overseas students.
The courses will include business administration, information technology, international hospitality management and international tourism management, reported Lanka Business Online.
LSC Group of Colleges’ chief executive Timothy Ashanta Andradi said the aim is to develop the British School of Commerce as a regional international centre of higher learning to attract youth of Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Nepal and the Maldives.
The BSC estimates that an average of 200 students from neighboring countries would study at the British School of Commerce during the first year alone.
“The demand for qualified graduates in Information and Communication Technology is high in Sri Lanka, and at present there are nearly 25,000 vacancies in the field of Information Technology,” said the Head of School, Chandima H de Silva.
