BSc (Hons) in Business and Industrial Mathematics

As the newest step towards enhancing academic and professional excellence, we are planning to provide the young capable with an opportunity to earn a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Business and Industrial Mathematics enabling them new exciting experience which will result an inevitable improvement of the respective discipline. Apart from the state sector Universities, there is hardly any other institution in Sri Lanka to offer an opportunity for students to obtain a degree in B.Sc. (Hons.) in Business and Industrial Mathematics. As a result, a considerable number of capable young people who have completed Advanced Level (Local, Edexcel and Cambridge Syllabi) dispossess the opportunity to follow a degree though they are interested in and equipped with a good knowledge in Business and Industrial Mathematics. According to the present situation Business and Industrial Mathematics education at University Level in Sri Lanka is not sufficient to cater the requirement of the fast-developing business and commercial establishment in the country.


This program has been designed to cater these requirements and produce well qualified and competent Business and Industrial Mathematics whose service will be immensely beneficial for the development of mathematical activities in Sri Lanka. This growing demand from the local educational sector motivated CINEC to plan out B.Sc. (Hons.) in Business and Industrial Mathematics degree program at the time private universities maintaining a proper quality standard are encouraged by the government.
