In a joint effort to enhance and promote the accounting profession, the University of Colombo and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka), last week signed a landmark agreement to allow both the accounting academia and it’s practitioners to collaborate and carry out a programme of work which will be beneficial to both institutions, as well as the accounting professionals and aspiring accountants in the country.

The MoU which was signed by CA Sri Lanka’s President Lasantha Wickremasinghe and the University’s Vice Chancellor Prof. Lakshman Dissanayake, paves way for the academic staff attached to the university’s Department of Accounting to act as resource personnel to assist in various course material related development of the institute, as well as take part in programmes organised by CA Sri Lanka.
