A focus group discussion was held on 06 June, 2018 at the Faculty to take views of the stakeholders on board into the proposal submitted under results area 2 of the AHEAD project (i.e., Enriching Learning, Teaching, Assessment and English Language Skills Enhancement). The categories of stakeholders participated in this session include the professionals from different business functions such as accounting and finance, human resource management, marketing, operations management and general management. Apart from the professionals, all academic staff members of the Faculty of Management, student representatives from various levels of the degree programme were also present. The notable feature is that a number of invitees from the industry are also from the alumni of the Faculty. In addition, Director, OTS of the University of Peradeniya was also present at the session.
After presenting the proposed activities, participants were invited for a discussion in the form of Q &A session in order to get their inputs. Further, written feedback was obtained from them to analyse their responses with regard to the proposed activities. The required changes have been made into the final version of the proposal to address each and every comment made at this discussion.
