HKBU among best journalism and media universities for Asian students
HKBU has been featured by the well-known journalism website Asian Correspondent as one of best journalism and media universities for Asian students. The University was the only tertiary institution in Asia to be covered in the feature.
Asian Correspondent, which has more than 3 million visitors globally, used a wide range of criteria to measure the performance of journalism and media schools, including their links to the industry, reputation in the industry, curriculum, strengths in new and social media, academic reputation and graduates' performance.
Professor Huang Yu, Acting Dean of the School of Communication, welcomed the honour. "The fact that our communication programme was recognised as among the best by Asian Correspondent is certainly a clear acknowledgement of a fine job by every one at our School, including faculty, supporting staff, students, alumni and friends of the school, and all HKBU colleagues."
Asian Correspondent's profile of the School of Communication states: "In the fields of journalism and communication, Hong Kong Baptist University operates particularly attractive programs." Professor Huang explained: "One of the strengths of our programme is that it offers a full range of communication programmes. With the new four-year programme, 'Film and Media Arts' and 'Financial Journalism' are also offered as a new major and a new concentration respectively."
