Krystal Yeung graduated from the Public Administration and Management (BAPAM) programme in 2019 with a first-class honours degree. Before enrolled in the programme, she had planned for her future career orientation and realized that her interest was in knowing public administration, and hence, she enrolled in the BAPAM course. BAPAM is aimed at understanding the government structure and its governance, and how to formulate policies, as well as the relationship between the executive and legislative authorities.

During her study, she thought that BAPAM is full of challenges and amusing. She said: "I am interested in public administration even though I have never studied social science or public management before. The tutors are very professional and experienced, they often use some local examples and cases in order to make sure theories can be easy to understand and its application can be easy to use in life. Also, the content is both practical and inspiring.”

Krystal added: “In this programme, I have learned critical thinking and increased understanding of society and the government. As the programme let me gain public administration, politics and public sector management knowledge, for instance, how the government leads or performs its functions and its duties to develop a relationship between citizens and the government. All of the knowledge helps to broaden my horizons and lay the foundation for my future careers path."

Besides, she said that the tight schedule can help her to enhance the time management and interpersonal skills. She said: 'Because of some courses need to share or discuss views with classmates while those discussions are always valuable and instructive."

To conclude, "This course inspires me to develop critical thinking and develop the strategies to deal with different situations in my future work. In addition, the sharing or discussion of our views with classmates of different occupations provided an opportunity for me to think about the different perspectives of stakeholders."

She said: "The programme also encourages us to learn actively, establishes our own learning style and creates brighter prospects for our future.”

Jason Yeung graduated from the above programme in 2018. He aims to be a Station Officer in Fire Services Department. Therefore, he chose Public Administration and Management as his major.

During the year of study at SCOPE, he did not only earn related knowledge and skill, but also knew so many friends there. He claimed that it was so important to have people, who carry the same goal, to study together. During the learning journey, they learned together, studied together, even prepared their career path together. Jason added: “Most of my classmates also want to work in the government, the knowledge and information exchange between us helped me to laid a strong foundation to be an officer in government department.

In the year of study, this programme provided so many opportunities for them to work with different people. In the group project, they did not only learn academic knowledge, but also communication and coordination skill. (These are actually what you need if you have the same goal with Jason) As a result, a good relationship and learning environment among the classroom were thereby established. And Jason can still keep in touch with his classmate after his graduation.

He believes that with the Public Administration related academic knowledge, he is able to deal with numerous paperwork and administrative work when he becomes a Station Officer. This really enhanced his understanding of the government's policy making process and the government's structure, such as the subject of “Public policy making”. It is about a policy cycle for making decision, the more you familiarize the stage, the more efficient you can publish a policy. On the other hand, the direction of government and Fire Services Department are always inter-influenced, it is another reason for him to choose this major. Therefore, he highly recommends people who want to work in the government applying for this program.

In spite of the fact that this course is tight and intensive, and also a little bit stressful. However, he thinks it is a great opportunity to gain multitasking skills and time management, especially for the people who aim to work in government. To Jason, working under pressure and tight schedule means that his time is utilized in a more productive manner, and he realizes a greater sense of accomplishment at the end of the day and year. He encouraged all the graduates to apply the studying attitude to their future working environment. All the best!

Hello everyone, I am Chan, Chun Yeung Simon. I am a graduate in 2018. I am working in the Immigration Department.

City University Scope offers a Public Administration and Management course that focuses on Hong Kong students' understanding of politics and talent training. Training Hong Kong requires a full range of political talents who are familiar with the policy and understand the operation of the government. It also understands the community and local issues and how to deal with the media and residents. As a civil servant, I am mainly responsible for implementing the ideas and plans of the government. Therefore, I need to be able to be familiar with public policies. This programme allows me to understand how the government formulates policies, how to deal with people's livelihood issues, community work, and political work. On the other hand, it will also enable graduates to have the opportunity to serve the public and have chances to contribute to society.

Studying in university requires effective time-management and great self-discipline to achieve academic success as we all need to balance between our personal life and study, for some the balance is between work, family and study. As for myself, when I made the decision to study while working full-time, some believed it was unwise for me to choose to burden myself financially and put myself under such pressure. But a quote kept me going, “We climb mountains not so the world can see us. So we can see the world.” This decision and opportunity to go back to school is my chance to see the world with my own eyes.

I am now studying Master of Public Administration in Baptist University. The Scope PAM programme has provided me knowledge for better preparing for the master course.

Throughout my study in the Public Administration and Management programme, among many things I’ve learnt, one thing stands out, that is, to analyze every situation with a critical mind.

In today’s world, we are bombarded with information. Professionals, officials, so-called celebrities openly share their judgement and analysis of current events and give advice to the general public. Some automatically believe these people regardless of the accuracy of the information or the possibility of any hidden agendas of the speakers as they may represent different stakeholders or interest groups. We must analyze the credibility of the speaker or writer and the accuracy of the information to maintain our behaviour, our belief, and our core values.

Fellow graduates, we are educated to be critical thinkers. Our education has prepared us to explore, seek knowledge, analyze problems and challenge our thinking. It is paramount to have an open mind, to think rationally and critically. I believe sitting among us are the future senior government officials serving our people and making policies affecting the general public. We all have the ability to mend the rifts and make a positive influence in our society. Remember, the decisions we make today have great impact on the generations to come. Never underestimate your ability to make a difference. Together, we can do great things for the people. Take the first step, regardless of how small you think it is because great changes always start with small steps.

梁政堯(Victor)一直有志投考政府職位,他相信具備與公共行政相關的背景會有利在政府工作,為了裝備自己,他選擇了入讀這課程。「過去一年的學習時間非常緊湊,但十分充實!從課程中所學到的知識非常實用,導師於課堂上經常引用緊貼我們的生活和社會環境的例子去輔助解說,有效地幫助我們明白和掌握各種政治概念;他們又不時鼓勵同學表達意見,無論在課堂外也很樂意與我們分享、討論。透過密集的交流討論,我們的溝通技巧和表達能力也得以大大提昇。」

另外,課程涵蓋範圍廣泛,其中『中國政府與政策』及『政治思想與分析』兩個科目,前者有系統地解構中國政府部門運作、中央政府與香港的關係,讓我對中國國情的認識大大增加;後者則著重理論分析,有效地訓練我的批判思考和多角度思維。在設計獨特的『體驗學習工作坊』,我們更有機會與來自英國德蒙福特大學的學生就不同的社會議題互相交流分享。加上導師經驗豐富,課堂氣氛十分熱烈,令我非常享受整個學習的過程。我深信在這課程所學習到的知識,對我未來無論在公營或是私人機構工作,也有很大的幫助。

陳嘉蔚(Bernice)就讀副學士學位時,並非就讀與公共行政及管理相關的背景。她認為此學科著重思考和討論,希望藉此課程提昇自己,因而入讀了這課程。

「公共行政及管理是一個多元而且豐富的科目,在課程中無論是個人匯報或是小組報告,都不乏與同學及導師討論的機會。透過頻繁密集的交流,我們對各種政治概念和管理理論的認識因而加深,並且有效地訓練個人的說話技巧、解決問題的能力、以及批判性思維,對在日後無論是踏入社會工作,或是繼續進修的我而言都是尤其重要的。

這課程涵蓋的範圍並不限於香港的政治環境,同時包括中國國情、醫療體制、環保等課題。透過資深導師的講解,我不但能夠認識各種管理理論、政策制訂的過程、公營機構的運作、香港政府與私人機構的關係等等,同時有機會認識中國與香港的關係、中國的政治體制和政策的制訂等。在導師的引導下,我學到以不同角度去了解各種管理理論和政治形態,導師的提問也往往能刺激我們思考,每堂課都令我大開眼界。這課程也在香港政府資歷架構下獲得認可,認受性獲肯定,是我繼續進修的踏腳石。」

畢業後,Berince獲本地大學取錄,繼續升讀犯罪學碩士學位課程。她鼓勵各副學士畢業生,忠於個人興趣、把握機會突破自己,勇敢接觸不同的領域。她也感謝各導師過去一年的教導和付出,他們無私的分享和鼓勵,令她得著甚豐,更有信心面對未來不同的挑戰。

彭笑珍(Evita)本身對公共行政及管理方面有濃厚興趣,經了解後知道這課程已有廿多年歷史,也是香港目前唯一設兼讀制的公共行政及管理銜接學位課程,這課程理所當然地成為了她的進修之選。

「我在這個課程中學到的知識非常多!雖然我不是畢業於社會工作或其他社會學科,但基於課程設計,來自非社會學背景的學生均須入讀銜接學科,以加強我們對公共行政及管理、政治分析等方面的基本認識。銜接學科為我們打好根基,對日後入讀其他科目的幫助非常大,學習起來更加得心應手。此外,這課程所涵蓋的範圍很廣泛,例如『中國政府與政策』一科,令我對中國政府的運作了解更透徹,也令我重新認識中國政府對香港以至對整個世界的影響;而『公共領域策略管理』則解構了很多不同的管理理論,往往可以應用於實際的工作環境之中,無論是理論知識或是導師們列舉的個案例子,都對我在警隊的日常工作非常有幫助。」

兩年來要在工作以外同時應付學業,難免感到吃力,但Evita依然樂在其中。「過去兩年的學習,我深深體會到妥善的時間管理的重要性。同時我也慶幸在學習過程中,能夠遇上完全投入教學、對學生循循善誘的導師,以及願意分享、一同努力付出的同學,以致在小組討論中往往能夠有豐富的交流,報告也能順利完成。完成這課程後,我得到的不僅是一個學士學位,還有一班有共同興趣以及在政治與人生不同課題上均不吝賜教的良師好友們,是我在這課程中得到的意外收穫。

徐開志(Davy)從事物業及設施管理行業已有多年,為提升職場競爭力,由06年起開始修讀CityU SCOPE的文憑課程,並逐步完成商業管理學位。至2014年,公共行政及管理學位課程為配合社會需求,新增設房屋管理專修,完成課程的業內人士可藉此考取專業資格。Davy希望考取英國特許房屋經理學會的專業資格,在工作崗位上獲得更佳發展,便入讀了這課程。

「我相信在今時今日的社會,政治與我們的工作和生活密不可分,要維持專業,我們需要面對和了解政策制定與房屋興建及社區管理的關係以及其衍生的問題,因此我選擇了入讀這課程。這課程有效地讓我知道如何從宏觀角度去了解各種政治理論、政策制訂的過程、政府的運作等;房屋管理專修則令我對香港房屋政策制定、屋宇市場、物業管理有更深層次的認識,不但開闊了我的眼界,課程涉獵到不同的管理理論,也對我處理日常工作有莫大裨益。完成課程後,我亦獲公司支持和肯定,由資深物業管理主任躍升為地區經理,在工作上獲得更大發展空間。

我衷心感激課程中所有導師的幫助和教導,他們不但專業,而且樂於與我們分享他們的知識和寶貴的經驗,每堂課都令我獲益良多!」
