Accredited Partner Centre Celebrates 20-Year Partnership with NCC Education 12 November 2009

Professor Felix Stravens, Managing Director, NCC Education, was honoured to attend an event to celebrate the Institute of Data Management (IDM) Sri Lanka’s 20 years as an Accredited Partner Centre.

One of NCC Education’s first Accredited Partner Centres (APC), IDM is now one of the largest APCs in NCC Education’s global network. Established in 1984, IDM has grown rapidly and is respected throughout Sri Lanka for its expertise and experience in the fields of IT and business education and training.

IDM offers students the full NCC Education Degree Journey in computing, culminating in the BSc (Hons) Business Information Technology awarded by the University of Greenwich, through six centres in Sri Lanka; thus enabling students to save money by studying for a British degree in their home country. IDM has branches within the following locations:


  • Colombo (two campuses)
  • Kandy
  • Kurunegala
  • Matara
  • Negombo


Professor Stravens was delighted to meet with the Chairman of the IDM Group of Companies, Dr Bandu Ranasinghe, and IDM’s Director of Studies Mr Lionel Perera. The IDM staff were presented with a commemorative plaque and a framed photograph of the Middle East and South Asia support team.

During the event, Professor Stravens gave presentations to IDCS and IADCS students about the NCC Education Degree Journey, and announced the launch of scholarships for the highest achieving diploma students at IDM.

To mark the 20th anniversary, NCC Education and IDM are offering a 20% discount on examination fees for students who join the IDCS programme before 20th February 2010.

For those who are employed in the public sector or their relatives, a reduction of 20% on examination fees is offered by NCC Education, and an additional 10% discount on the programme fee by IDM. This offer is valid until 10th October 2010.
