Australia’s largest university, Monash University hosted a get together of Monash alumni in Sri Lanka. Several senior staff from Monash University, including Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Global Engagement) Professor Stephanie Fahey, Deputy Dean (Research) Faculty of Business and Economics Professor Gary Magee, and the Head of Department of Management Professor Ian McLoughlin were in attendance.
Australia has been consistently ranked as the most popular destination for Sri Lankan students wishing to undertake overseas tertiary education. Associate Professor Ramanie Samaratunge, Deputy Director of Education, Department of Management at Monash University said Monash was one of the universities at which students looked forward to studying due to its international reputation for excellence.
“We hosted this get together for Monash alumni in Sri Lanka because of the significant number of graduates living here,” Associate Professor Samaratunge said. The Alumni community at Monash University plays a significant role globally to offer better opportunities to its members and create lifelong relationships between members as well as with the university; this collegial relationship will be encouraged amongst Monash alumni in Sri Lanka as well.
