Program Description:

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Established in 1956, Hong Kong Baptist University started life as a private post-secondary Christian college and in 1983, became a public university. No longer having a Christian affiliation, HKBU provides broad-based education that blends teaching, research and international perspectives. The University is committed to providing Whole Person Education that inculcates intellectual, cultural, social and sporting skills outside the classroom in addition to training the minds within.

HKBU is the second-oldest institution of higher education in Hong Kong.  In 2010, the Business School attained AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International accreditation - Less than 5% of the world's business schools are AACSB accredited.
 
Located in the heart of Kowloon, HKBU is only a few minutes' walk from metro stations and are well-serviced by public transport from virtually every area of Hong Kong.

LOCATION
After over a century and a half of British occupation, Hong Kong became a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China in 1997. While traces of its past can still be found in the fishing villages scattered in its outlying islands, Hong Kong has flourished into a major international finance center featuring state-of-the-art infrastructure and highly efficient business services.  It is also a vibrant, international region that has cultural events, heritage and beautiful landscapes. Its compact size and unique attractions provide for a wide range of activities: hiking, fresh Cantonese seafood, quiet fishing villages, rare wildlife, beaches and world-class shopping districts.
