A thought-provoking, challenging and enriching three years at M S U as a part-time PhD student enabled me to complete my doctoral studies successfully in exactly three years. I found both the academic and administrative staff at MSU Colombo and Malaysia to be extremely friendly and supportive. The environment was vibrant with lectures, workshops and training sessions by highly acclaimed academics. Their support, advice, patience, encouragement, insightful comments were invaluable for me to be successful in completing my PhD in such a short span of time. Being a part time student, holding high office in the corporate sector, spending quality time with the family, a challenging work environment and frantically juggling commitments each day was a daunting task. However, highly supportive staff and the supervisors at MSU assisted me in numerous ways to pursue my goal despite my hectic schedule.

Prof. Dr. Prasadini Gamage: Professor in Human Resources Management, Department of Human resources Management University of Kelaniya
It is with great pleasure that I pen down this message as a successful PhD holder of the 1st batch completed doctoral studies at the Management and Science University of Malaysia (MSU) through the MSU Learning Center Colombo. For my doctoral studies, I selected one of the booming industries in Sri Lanka; the tourism industry and developed an HRM model to boost the performance of employees in star class hotels in Sri Lanka. In this dynamic environment, hotels have to rethink about their practices to respond to the customers’ demands more efficiently and effectively. The findings derived from this study could provide insights to the management of the star class hotel industry on the ways of how this sector could gain a competitive advantage and better perform through nurturing its HR by means of adopting High Performance Work Practices to face new challenges. I would like to express my sincere thanks and heartfelt gratitude to my supervisors, the Dean of the School of Business, MSU Malaysia, staff members at MSU Learning Center, Colombo for their invaluable guidance and support extended during the past three years.
