Higher education is a pursuit that goes beyond theoretical knowledge. It prepares students to grow into responsible adults by exposing themselves to the outside world and choosing stable career paths. From this point of view, a postgraduate degree is the ideal higher education route for those who aspire to a career in marketing and business to become an entrepreneur.
The Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM) offers the Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing Management (PGDip) to anyone interested and seeking to understand local market conditions and find solutions in everyday business scenarios.
SLIM’s PGDip is the only local postgraduate degree in marketing.

In addition to this, the leadership enhancement program conducted by SLIM helps students further develop the personal skills needed at the corporate level as well as in life.
