Human Resource Management Institute (HRMI) and Metropolia UAS have signed 13.6.2017 a partnership agreement regarding Master's-level Degree Programme in Health Business Management. The agreement was signed by the Human Resource Management Institute’s Head of Operations, Netthasinghe Nanayakkara Dilani Wathsala and Metropolia’s President, Managing Director Riitta Konkola and Director, Continuing Education and Enterprise Services Katri Luukka.
The training will be conducted in accordance with the franchising model and will be held in Sri Lanka. At the beginning, Metropolia's share of the implementation is wider, but the responsibility will be gradually shifted to the Sri Lankan trainer. The teaching takes place both as contact teaching in Sri Lanka and as via online learning. Every year, three implementations will be started, each involving around 15 students.
Netthasinghe Nanayakkara Dilani Wathsala and Senior Lecturer Gamage Don Ranga Anil Kumara from HRMI are currently getting acquainted with Metropolia under the guidance of Lecturer Kimmo Seppänen. The weeks agenda includes such topics as marketing, student recruitment, degree qualifications, contents, teaching methods and evaluation. During the week's program, they will familiarize with the Finnish education system and the degree programmes they are especially interested in. They also have some corporate visits in their agenda.
"This is a great opportunity for Metropolia and Finland. Our confidential partnership between Sri Lanka is now beginning to bear fruit," says Director Katri Luukka.
"The HRMI and Metropolia partnership will open a new chapter in the annals of higher education in Sri Lanka," comments Netthasinghe Nanayakkara Dilani Wathsala.
Other collaborations in Sri Lanka
Metropolia’s two health care specialists, Päivi Haapasalmi, Head of Department in Health Care Diagnostic Services and Service Management and Riitta Lumme, Principal Lecturer, will travel to Sri Lanka at the International Institute of Health Sciences (IIHS) in September 2017 and will conduct on-site skills tests for local Bioanalytic students. Based on this, the need for further training will be estimated and, according to the preliminary plans, students will arrive in Finland in January 2018.
Increasing foreign trade will bring much-needed new revenue streams for Metropolia. Foreign trade includes in addition to education sales, other products and services developed in the context of research, development and innovation as well as education.
