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.



BAPAM appeals to socially responsible professionals with an inquiring mind in local and global affairs. The elective modules further develop specialised knowledge in the areas of housing, environmental issues, healthcare and China.
