Networked with institutions in mainland China, North America, and Europe, the programme is designed for mid-career professionals and university graduates who want to further develop or prepare for careers in international affairs.
The master degree in International and Public Affairs offered by The University of Hong Kong provides conceptual knowledge and in-depth understanding of global and Asia Pacific affairs to meet the challenge of a globalising world.
As a major international city with an outward-oriented economy and a meeting point of Asian and Western cultures, Hong Kong is an ideal location for the study of international relations. A regional communication and business hub, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is home to a large number of international organizations and major business corporations. Over ninety countries have chosen to open diplomatic missions in the SAR, which is strategically located as the gateway between China and the rest of the world.
The MIPA is the first postgraduate taught course programme in international affairs offered by a locally based institution of higher learning in Hong Kong. The programme will facilitate the development of knowledge, professional resources, and networks for those interested in international affairs. The faculty consists of dedicated scholars, trained in major universities and well connected with the academic, professional and policy communities regionally and internationally. The department also regularly hosts visiting international scholars in the field.
