Achievers Lanka Business School entered into an agreement with BPP Professional Education in the UK as their exclusive partner for the delivery of blended learning courses for the CIMA Professional Qualification, the first of its kind in Sri Lanka.

It is becoming an increasingly popular method of delivery across the world and brings in that additional element to the classroom and supports existing teaching techniques. Blended learning combines many of the best elements of face-to-face teaching while allowing greater variety and flexibility than a traditional classroom set up, responding to the needs of the modern learner.
