The Diploma in Business Computer Applications (DBCA) is a new programm proposed by the ICT Center-Kuliyapitiya for the undergraduates of the Faculty of Business Studies & Finance (BSF). The ICT Center- Kuliyapitiya will conduct this Diploma programme in parallel to the academic programme of the Faculty of BSF. Total number of credits of the programme is 30, and the duration of the programme is two years. The proposed programme closely follows the recommendations of the guidelines of Sri Lanka Qualifications Framework. This programme will help students to gain IT skills to complete their degree programme successfully, and perform IT-related duties efficiently and e↵ectively in their future workplace.
