Imperial College of Higher Education
Imperial Institute of Higher Education IIHE was established in 1996, starting its operations in a very modest scale, being associated with the prestigious University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD), U.K. in providing both undergraduate (B.Sc. Honours in Management) and post-graduate (MBA-Masters in Business Administration) level education.
The association so far, has produced over 600 B.Sc. graduates and over 500 MBA post-graduates. The majority of graduates completed their entire educational program in Sri Lanka, while a few did proceed to Wales, for their 3 rd year studies, pursuing the “Transfer Study” route.
During the past 20 years, IIHE has maintained a reputation for “Quality” in delivery of tertiary education. This was possible as IIHE is required to satisfy the rigorous demand of the Quality Assurance Agency of U.K. and the parent universities, UWTSD and UoS. Continuous evaluations are carried out by the universities to ensure that IIHE is conducting the programs in accordance with the agreed standards.
At IIHE, the emphasis is on “Quality” in everything we do, and open opportunities for higher education to sync with our Mission to produce business leaders of future, which is increasingly sought by Sri Lankan corporate and SME sectors.
