It is with great pleasure that I convey this message as a successful PhD holder of the 13th 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 crucial sectors in Sri Lanka; the Banking sector and examined the financial literacy as a significant variable to determine the level of financial inclusion among the rural poor women in Sri Lanka. In this context, the research found that since the lack of financial literacy among the rural women, they are excluded from the formal banking sector. Therefore, formal Financial Institutes should have focused to formulate some strategies to absorb these unbanked rural populations into the formal banking sector.
The findings of this study could provide insights to the policy makers of the financial sector in the ways of how to improve the level of financial literacy of this segment of the society and how to formulate new policies to absorb financial excluded rural women into the formal banking sector and enhance their economic empowerment. In addition, results have shown that financial inclusion plays a significant mediating role between financial literacy and women’s economic empowerment. 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 last three years.
Dr. Prabhashini Wijewantha Senior Lecturer, Department of Human Resource Management Faculty of Commerce and Management Studies, University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka.
I completed my Ph.D. from the Management and Science University (MSU), Malaysia in 2020. I was a member of the Batch 13 from Sri Lanka. Upon completion of the Research Methodology lecture series and the workshops, I undertook my research within large scale Sri Lankan private sector organisations which are emerging as multinationals (emerging market multinationals) giving a huge competition to the global corporate giants. As Sri Lanka is currently focusing on promoting local industries to enter the international markets it is very important that we ensure the human resource in these organisations are ready and willing to support this business mission. Given this situation, my research study focused on ensuring health and wellness (well-being) of these employees by supporting them to minimise job and work related stress.
As such, it is important to see how organisations could minimise these stressors by largely focusing on issues such as internal organisational politics which has largely become a hidden killer of organisations. In undertaking this research study, I was able to further my understanding in the areas of research methodology and data analyses. As such, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my supervisors from MSU, Malaysia, Senior VP for Postgraduate, Business and Social Science Cluster, Dean Graduate School of Management and the Director and the staff of MSI Learning Centre, Colombo for their support extended during the undertaking of this insightful research study which I undertook.

Dr. Mudith Sujeewa Gamlath: (Senior Lecturer, Department of Accountancy, University of Kelaniya)
It is with great pleasure that I write this message as a successful PhD holder at the Management and Science University of Malaysia (MSU) through the MSU Learning Center Colombo. For my doctoral studies I selected one of the contemporary issues, the Determinants of Employee Frauds in Public Sector Entities in Sri Lanka.
In this complex, uncertain and digitised environment, public sector entities are exposed to greater level of fraud risk and therefore should focus more on fraud risk and how to manage fraud risk by inculcating ethical culture to improve the integrity among the employees to reduce employee frauds.
The findings derived from this study could provide insights to the management of the public sector entities, regulators and policy makers on the ways of how to manage fraud risk and reduce fraud in public sector entities in Sri Lanka. 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 last three years.
