To seek the potentials and respond to the increasing demands of talents due to the recent growth and development of social, charitable and philanthropic organizations in China and Macau, our university set up this ‘charity and philanthropy management program in 2011; further renamed it as “Master of Charity and Social Organization Management” in 2020. The program takes two years to complete.
