Wisdom Business Academy, the largest CIMA Education Institute in Sri Lanka, an outstanding educator actively engaged in nurturing professionally qualified Management Accountants in Sri Lanka offers the expertise and experience of two of their most dynamic lecturers for Financial Management an integral subject in CIMA Management Level.
Mallik De Silva
Experienced lecturer - Mallik De Silva, who specialises in Financial Management at the Management Level, is the Group Finance Manager of the local conglomerate Richard Pieris and Company PLC. He is responsible for the preparation of group accounts, consolidated financial statements and the Annual Report which is the core subject area in the Financial Management Syllabus. His expertise is such that every student is exposed to the practical aspects of Financial Management and not just loaded with theoretical knowledge. The interpretation of financial statements has significant impact on the syllabus and carries 35 % of the weight.
As the Group Finance Manager Mallik interprets the performance of RPC Group and its subsidiaries on a continuing basis. His co-lecturer Akalanka Saparamadu, is a CIMA passed finalist and a business graduate from the University of Colombo with 1st Class Honours. In addition he is reading for CFA Finals. As a Relationships Manager attached to Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corporation - a multinational banking corporation, he analyses the financial statements of a large spectrum of clientele on a continuing basis. As such students learn how financial statements are analyzed in the business world. There's absolutely no doubt that this exposure gives the student a competitive edge at the examination.
The combined strength of these experienced CIMA campaigners is transferred to the students who in turn benefit and gain invaluable exposure and in-depth understanding of the subject, when studying at Wisdom Business Academy.
Furthermore, both lecturers have devised a mechanism where students are introduced to a "magical formula" to help them present their reports successfully to the utmost satisfaction of the examiners, which is to be unveiled during the course of their lectures. Report writing which includes an advanced analysis has so far been an area which has posed a difficulty for many a Sri Lanka student.
The two lecturers have also over the years developed yet another successful mechanism entirely focused on probable areas for the examination and more often than not these are the exact areas that are tested by the examiners during the final exam. Both Mallik and Akalanka provide examination coaching where the students are trained to answer the questions within a stipulated time frame as many students run short of time during the examination, even though they are well versed in the subject. Numerous ways of effective time management and other examination tactics and strategies are periodically rolled out during the entire session in order to get the student 'exam ready'.
Students are also given a minimum of four mock examinations with strict guidelines similar to the final exam, while the lectures take the effort to give personalized feedback to each and every student on their weak points, to ensure that they master these skills in time for the final exam.
What's more there's never a dull moment throughout the sessions, students learn the core functions of Financial Management in an interactive, dynamic and challenging environment where the maximum potential of the student is harnessed by the lectures. Their main aim is to lay the foundation for the creation of qualified Management Accountants in Sri Lanka. Financial Management sessions conducted by Wisdom Business Academy are created for the absolute convenience of the students, as they have to only devote one day per week to attend lectures, thereby saving valuable time.

"If you want to do CIMA, the ideal choice would be Wisdom especially for the management pillar. The FM paper was just as predicted and the sole reason was due to the young lecturers Mr Mallik and Akalanka's deep exam focus and drive. The number of mocks, marking of mocks and discussion were fruitful. FM for wisdom would be nothing if deprived of you both. Thanks heaps and make the right choice"
