The only difference – faster in completion
The only difference is that the duration of the programme under this fast-track mode will be shortened by one semester – the programme will start in July 2023 and be completed by December 2024.



About the Programme


The BA (Hons) Public Administration and Management (BAPAM) is the longest thriving non-local programme in public administration in Hong Kong. Offered since 1995, the programme offers a broad education for sub-degree holders who wish to pursue a career in public sector, politics or have frequent interactions with these sectors. Since 2014, a Housing Specialisation leading to the chartered membership of the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) has been introduced, enabling sub-degree holders with appropriate background in housing to gain a professional qualification.
