In keeping with the vision of Uva Wellassa University, the Faculty of Management sets new trends by introducing a degree program in Hospitality, Tourism and Events Management, taking in to consideration, the needs of the country and in producing employable graduates who can contribute significantly towards the economic development of Sri Lanka. This program is introduced at a time where there is a conducive atmosphere for the development of Tourism and Leisure Industry.
The Tourism sector had it’s set back for the last three decades due to civil unrest in the country. Now with the end of the unrest, there is sudden boom in the travel and tourism industry. There is a need to produce employable graduates to cater to the needs of top and middle level Management and to promote Tourism and Leisure Industry. This program will certainly fill the existing vacuum in this industry and promote economic growth expected by the country.
