NIBM with a view to providing opportunities for higher
education to those who fail to enter state universities
owing to extensive competition. It stands out among
other non-state sector degree awarding institutions in its
dedication to offer degree programmes of high quality at
an affordable cost.

While NSBM is presently located in rented buildings
inthe heart of Nugegoda from where all the degree
programmes are conducted, it will move, except for a
few programmes of study, to an ultramodern state-
of–the-art campus, the NSBM Green University Town,
that is being built in Pitipana, Homagama, about 35 km
away from Colombo. Away from the hustle and bustle of
the city and nestling in the greenery and quiet of a rural
setting, it offers an idyllic environment for those who
wish to engage in higher studies and research.

The construction work of the Green University Town,
located in a 26-acre land, commenced in December 2013
