HONG KONG – Journalism students, especially from the M.A. in International Journalism Studies of Hong Kong Baptist University, rushed into a seminar room on Sep. 23, 2011 upon arrival of Jake Bernstein, a Pulitzer Prize winner, who was invited to share journalistic tips to students.

Bernstein started his special lecture at 10 a.m. and spent about one and a half hour to share how the U.S. economic crisis happened and how his work about that topic could win the Pulitzer Prize, the most prestige award for journalists offered by Columbia University.
