Practicum in NGOs/NPOs!

GDBU1956 / GDSS1956 Service Leadership Practicum

In Semester 2 of AY2019/20, the Department of Marketing will offer an interdisciplinary GE course, GDBU1956 / GDSS1956 Service Leadership Practicum. This course is specially designed under the Service Leadership Education Project of GE to provide students with a guided self-discovery learning experience.

Unlike other GE courses, the main component of this course is to provide service in a placement in a non-profit organization or non-governmental organization. Prior to the placement, two briefing lectures on campus will equip you with what you need to know.

You will be able to:

  •  strengthen your service leadership competencies  through active learning;
  •  build a sense of social responsibility and commitment  that is essential to your future career;
  •  earn 3 credit units  to fulfill your graduation requirement;
  • Fulfill one of the GE Distribution Requirements of your choice:  Business or Social Sciences or you can take the course as a Free Elective .

This course will be registered through an online form, instead of Buniport pre-registration exercise. The whole selection and matching process will be finished before the pre-registration period.
