Placement in NGOs!

GDBU1956 / GDSS1956 Service Leadership Practicum

In Semester 2 of AY2016/17, the Department of Marketing will offer a new 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. In prior to placement, 3 briefing lectures on campus will equip you what you need to know.

You will be able to:

  •  strengthen your leadership capabilities  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, Social Sciences or 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.
