A master's programme to prepare students for business in China and on the world stage.

A Career Starter

Launched in 2012, the Master of Science in Business Management (MScBM) Programme provides a general focus on junior business executives and fresh graduates from all disciplines wishing to jumpstart their business careers. With a broad and comprehensive scope ranging from accounting & finance, business law, marketing to management, and an emphasis on dimensions of international business, students shall refine their business knowledge, gain practical experience, hone personal skills, and be ready to kickstart their career.

China Focus, Global Perspective

The MScBM programme curriculum incorporates a wealth of China elements to equip students with general knowledge and skills necessary for success on the Chinese Mainland. Our China-related elective courses, to name but a few, include Legal Aspects of China Trade and Investment, International Trade and Finance in China, and Chinese Wisdom and Management. To further accentuate this China focus, students of the programme are uniquely benefited from a connection with the alumni of the MBA and MScBM programme – many of whom are senior business executives in China –through a series of learning and social activities. This connection provides valuable learning and interactive experience.

Hong Kong Baptist University also offers opportunities for international exchange via its partnership with overseas and Mainland partner institutions, with possibility of credit transfer to the MScBM programme. Moreover, as part of the programme, MScBM students can choose to participate in a one-week business field study in a city in Greater China or overseas, during which they will evaluate a designated company or industry and draw up recommendations to improve business performance. It presents a stimulating environment where students may apply their knowledge of China/international business practices to tackle challenges in a real setting.

All-rounder development

The global business world is seeing a paradigm shift towards what is termed “soft skills” – where such attributes as attitude, intuition, ideas, creativity, energy, and engagement are increasingly valued. The MScBM programme aims at cultivating these aspects of our students through a combination of seminars, workshops, corporate visits and career development training under the umbrella "Executive Development Series” specifically designed to provide a “live learning” experience. These activities offer students practical experience from business leaders, chances to obtain knowledge and skills in leadership, presentation and professional image building, and grasp of latest job market developments.

The MSc in Clinical Dermatology is designed specifically for doctors with a special interest in dermatology after gaining at least one year of general medical experience.

The course aims to give a firm grounding in the fundamentals of clinical and scientific dermatology, with priority given to clinical instruction but also an emphasis on the scientific content of dermatology.

It is particularly suitable for overseas medical graduates, but is also appropriate as an additional course to contribute to any dermatology specialist training programme. Most students are self-funded, though some obtain awards from the British Council, respective Governments, Commonwealth Universities Scholarships and employers.

The MSc comprises seven modules delivered using face-to-face teaching at the Welsh Institute of Dermatology at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, UK.

Distinctive features:

• Weekly observational clinical placements in local dermatology centres.
• Lectures from international guest speakers.
• Skills workshops, including practical skin surgery sessions.

The course is also accredited by Hong Kong College of Family Physicians and Hong Kong Medical Association.

Stage 1 is the teaching stage. It lasts for eight months, and consists of six 20-credit modules, totalling 120 credits, at Level 7.

Stage 2, the dissertation stage, lasts for a further four months, to a total of one academic year, and will include a dissertation of 60 credits at Level 7, to achieve a combined total of 180 credits at Level 7 to complete the MSc programme.

You may leave the course after successfully completing 60 credits with a Postgraduate Certificate, or after successfully completing 120 credits with a Postgraduate Diploma. 

The dissertation is based on a literature-review and normally not more than 20,000 words supported by such other material as may be considered appropriate to the subject and should include the results of your period of project work. The dissertation is worth 60 credits and is weighted 50% for the purpose of calculating your final mark.

A practical skills module runs throughout the duration of Stage 1 of the course. This is supported by significant patient interaction. You will be allocated to the Dermatology Day Treatment Unit for a 1 – 2 week period for practical clinical experience. You will be required to attend regular general outpatient dermatology clinics in Cardiff and the surrounding area. There are also day visits to other dermatology centres in Wales.

Core modules:

Introduction to Dermatology: Evidence-Based Dermatology, Immunology and Biology of the Skin

Course description

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters.

In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.

The Postgraduate Distance Learning Diploma in International Dispute Resolution - Mediation has a strong focus on mediation and conciliation. The course will introduce you to the process of mediation and its role in the resolution of disputes. The diploma not only provides an understanding of the theoretical, practical and ethical problems relating to international mediation, but can also provide a stepping stone for professionals to become involved in international alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

The diploma is aimed not only at lawyers, but also at other professionals who may be involved in mediation - be it as a disputant, representative or perhaps as a mediator: a legal qualification will not be a prerequisite for admission, although you will be expected to appreciate that the course will involve an understanding of law and legal implications. References and materials will be legally orientated, but this will enable the non-lawyer to be better equipped to deal with the issues raised in international business mediation.

This programme will:
◦Give you a thorough grounding on all major issues arising in day-to-day international mediation practice.
◦Promote academic research of the highest standard on selected topics of interest.
◦Allow flexibility to enable you to plan and balance your study and work commitments.

Why is the course relevant?

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as:

A pilot scheme for the automatic referral to mediation in the UK County Court Money Claims Centre for claims of less than £5,000.
Automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters (claims up to £5,000).
A Court of Appeal scheme whereby appeals of personal injury and contract claims of up to £200,000 will be automatically recommended for mediation.
The Department for Business, Innovations and Skills has instituted a pilot scheme for two regional mediation networks for small and medium sized enterprises.
In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation (2008/52/EC) has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.

The PgDip and MSc in Practical Dermatology is for practising General Practitioners or other practising doctors who regularly deal with patients with dermatological problems.

The distance learning course aims to enable doctors to successfully manage dermatological problems in patients presenting to their surgeries. It is a highly interactive, online programme designed to equip the general practitioner with a sound understanding of skin disease as it presents in practice.

Students are expected to use their individual study time to complete the modular learning material, which is available online, and complete further reading from dermatology text books and searches for material in journal articles and libraries. The success of the course therefore depends, to a large extent, on the input and enthusiasm of course participants.

The course holds both UK and international accreditation, including from the Royal College of General Practitioners, Hong Kong College of Family Physicians and Hong Kong Medical Association. 

Structure

• PgDip:

All students must register initially for the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip).

The PgDip course lasts for one academic year for full-time students or two years for part-time students, and consists of six 20-credit modules, totalling 120 credits, at Level 7.

Students who have not obtained 120 credits, but have obtained a minimum of 60 credits at Level 7, including any ‘required core modules’, will be eligible for the exit award of Postgraduate Certificate.

Core modules:

Introduction to Practical Dermatology
Skin Lesions
Special Cutaneous Sites
Inflammatory Dermatoses
Environmental Challenges in Practical Dermatology
Demographic Subgroups in Practical Dermatology

• MSc:

The MSc course consists of one (dissertation) stage, lasting for 12 months (part-time).

The MSc dissertation stage will include a formative 10-week block of online study to develop study and research skills, and completion of a dissertation of 60 credits at Level 7, to achieve a total of at least 180 credits, including the 120 credits from the Cardiff University Postgraduate Diploma in Practical Dermatology, to complete the MSc programme.

The dissertation, which will normally be of not more than 20,000 words and supported by such other material as may be considered appropriate to the subject, embodies the results of a period of project work.  The subject of each your dissertation will be approved by the Chair of the Board of Studies concerned or his/her nominee.

Teaching

The course is delivered entirely online via Cardiff University’s virtual learning environment (VLE), Learning Central, allowing regular, rapid and efficient communication between colleagues, tutors and course administrators, reducing the isolation commonly associated with distance learning.

Through dedicated online tutorial support, discussion forums and online assessments, students become members of an enthusiastic and supportive online community of doctors with an interest in dermatology. This environment allows collaboration, both academic and clinical, which can extend beyond the life of the programme.

Assessment

Each module will be assessed by written work, objective structured tests/questions and online activities.

Students are not required to be called for a viva voce examination.

The MSc requires formal assessment in the form of a 20,000 word dissertation to achieve the MSc in Practical Dermatology.

Career Prospects

The Postgraduate Diploma and MSc can form part of the portfolio of a general practitioner wishing to practice as a GPwSI in dermatology.
