Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) is committed to promoting 'Whole Person Education' and providing holistic learning experiences that nurture fully-rounded achievers. The Career Centre strives to inculcate a dynamic and innovative learning culture on campus while soliciting both overseas and local internship opportunities for our students. 

Since 1998, over 2,500 HKBU students have seized the opportunity to engage in internships abroad under the Metropolitan Attachment Programme (MAP). Apart from internships, HKBU students, as global citizens, have also taken steps to promote mutual understanding across time zones, cultures and languages with respect and humbleness. Their endeavour in tackling challenges under different circumstances has rendered them mature individuals.
