PIMA as PIM’s Pride

I am pleased to participate in the precious inauguration of the PIMA Oman Chapter. PIMA is the proclamation of PIM’s pride. As we often observe, PIM is as good as its alumni. In line with PIM’s vision and mission, we produce leaders with global presence and local pulse. PIM has been in the forefront in breeding such leaders with character and competence, as the nations’ management mentor. They are equipped with cutting-edge knowledge and complementary skills needed to perform in both private and public sectors alike. In developing them with clarity and commitment, PIM has always been a centre of excellence in management education with its winds spreading beyond Sri Lanka. 

PIM is celebrating its three decades of excellence. We have embarked on expanding ourselves regionally and globally through research and relationships. The vibrancy we see in our overseas programs is indeed encouraging. Now we have student communities in Dubai (UAE), Doha (Qatar), Muscat (Oman), Kuwait City (Kuwait), Dhaka (Bangladesh) and Manama (Bahrain) with promising prospects from Male (Maldives). Empowering leadership has paved way for enthusiastic and engaged endavours by employees. PIM will continue to produce value in practicing values, as the nation’s pioneering premier postgraduate entity. 

Let me congratulate the incumbent leaders of the PIMA Oman Chapter for their pioneering initiative of creating the network of MBA qualified “thinking performers” who are “being brilliant on basics”. I look forward to witness the resounding success of PIMA Oman Chapter with its future enhancements.

We believe in excellence as essence. PIM should continue to go, grow and glow. Let’s strive to fly higher. 

Best wishes!
