Meanwhile, CA Sri Lanka recently organized a scholarship awarding ceremony where three of the top achieving students from Colombo were present to accept their scholarships. Due to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic in the country, students from out of Colombo were unable to attend the event.

As a responsible, world class professional body, CA Sri Lanka has been at the forefront in helping educate the student population on the importance of obtaining a recognized and contemporary qualification, such as the Chartered Accounting qualification offered by CA Sri Lanka which has been the choice of many top business leaders for decades.

President of CA Sri Lanka, Manil Jayesinghe highlighted that the Institute is committed to ensuring Sri Lanka will continue to have the necessary skilled professionals in the future to take our nation forward. “The past one year has been the most challenging year for all of us due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, despite the challenges we have been facing, we are devoted to our cause of continuing to produce top Chartered Accountants who will give leadership not just to corporates in Sri Lanka, but also overseas. Therefore, notwithstanding the numerous challenges we are facing at present, we are determined to continue to grant scholarships to the best and brightest of students across Sri Lanka in recognition of their exceptional achievement,” he said.

The CA Sri Lanka Curriculum stands apart from most other curriculums as it builds holistic business leaders. The curriculum empowers students with all round managerial skills, thereby ensuring that they possess the skills to play a critical role in senior management such as Chairman, Managing Director, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officers among other high-profile designations.

Chartered Accountants produced by CA Sri Lanka also enjoy guaranteed employability both locally as well as overseas, while CA Sri Lanka qualified Chartered Accountants are also among the most sought-after professionals across all industries and are known to give leadership to small and medium businesses as well as multinationals, blue-chip companies and conglomerates.

The CA Sri Lanka program is offered at three ascending levels, and at each level, the student receives a recognized qualification which guarantees their employability. Students who follow the CA program have the option of exiting as a Certified Business Accountant (CBA) after completing the Business Level or exit as a Certified Corporate Accountant (CCA) after completing the Corporate Level and as an Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) after completing the Strategic Level, which is the final level.

Students with minimum three simple passes from any subject stream at the GCE Advanced Level can register with CA Sri Lanka. Due to the prevailing situation in the country, students who wish to join CA Sri Lanka can register online by visiting or call 0710 235241, 0710 235248 for assistance.
