The National School of Business Management (NSBM) will have the capacity to become Sri Lanka’s largest university when its new campus at Pitipana in Homagama opens in a couple of months. Already over 5,000 students are pursuing undergraduate studies at NSBM’s smaller Nugegoda facility. The new campus is costing Rs10.2 billion and is part financed by a Bank of Ceylon loan. NSMB’s undergraduate courses are fee levying and will accept students from overseas.
