About

International and Development Economics from Lingnan University is mainly intended for executives of leading companies and state-owned enterprises, civil servants, and professionals working in relevant sectors. What they learn about policy and economics will help them perform their jobs more effectively and thus enhance their career aspirations.

Overview

The Belt and Road initiative and planned economic developments in the Greater Bay Area are in the spotlight in Hong Kong and have attracted the interest of investors around the world. Businesses and governments can see the potential, with many already indicating they are keen to take part in upcoming projects.

However, there are also new opportunities for universities and other educational institutes, which are proactively stepping up related research efforts and introducing programmes to offer training and insights for professionals and academics looking to specialise in this area.

Features

As one of Asia’s leading liberal arts universities, Lingnan University recently launched a new Master of Science in International and Development Economics (MIDE). It is the first such master’s programme in Hong Kong taught mainly in Putonghua and focuses on the Belt and Road initiative and economic development in the Greater Bay Area of South China.

All graduates of MIDE may apply for GSCASS’s postgraduate course and half of the credits can be exempted if they are successfully enrolled. Students are expected to obtain the second master’s degree from GSCASS after completing half of their credits according to the regulations. Details will be announced once students are admitted on to the MIDE programme.
