The Globalisation and Development (GAD) Programme is a new, dynamic educational platform at the English-medium “United International College” of Beijing Normal University and Hong Kong Baptist University (BNU-HKBU UIC) in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, China.
The college is housed in the green, seaside town of Zhuhai, in the Pearl River Delta, adjacent to Macau and conveniently connected to Hong Kong by a recently completed bridge, widely considered a marvel of human engineering, at the heart of the booming “Greater Bay Area” region.
The GAD Programme – leading to a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Honors) issued by Hong Kong Baptist University – is uniquely interdisciplinary, as it infuses modern international affairs studies with highly relevant “STEM” components.
It trains future governance leaders with a distinctive international perspective and solid digital skills, capable of managing the complex, interconnected, transnational development challenges of our times on behalf of public administrations, private corporations, international organisations, think tanks and media.
The added value of studying in GAD is represented by its location in one of most vibrant and fast-growing regions in the world, in a country, China, that has been defining our times by leading the rise of the Global South and coming to represent the epitome of large-scale development, trade integration and global outreach.
GAD is a truly cutting-edge platform that aims at expanding horizons, crossing boundaries and making sense of the most pressing trends in international affairs, economic development governance, sustainability, as well as regional and multilateral cooperation. The courses available in the major include:
MAJOR REQUIRED (CORE) COURSES
In addition, from Year 3 onwards students will be able to define their own educational path on the basis of their interests and aspirations by choosing between two alternative concentrations, in “International Development” or in “Public Administration”:
OPTION 1 - International Development Concentration Required Courses
OPTION 2 - Public Administration Concentration Required Courses
Concentration Elective Courses include:
Classes tend to be relatively small (30-40 students maximum), ensuring meaningful exposure and effective interaction. High-quality teaching is proven by a consistently high percentage of graduates (above 60%) pursuing Master’s and PhD degrees after graduation in the most prestigious English speaking universities in the world (e.g. QS Top 100).
