Academic ProgrammesThe Faculty of Social Sciences at The University of Hong Kong has a long history of excellence in teaching and research and plans to draw upon this expertise to offer a taught post graduate degree in non-profit management that is launching in September 2015. In thinking about the structure and nature of such a graduate degree, HKU is collaborating with Indiana University, ranked top in non-profit management degree programmes in the world, to offer a dual degree programme.
