In 1983, the OUC (formerly CCRTVU) began to enroll junior-college students in its Economic Management major. In 2011, the Human-resources Management major was established, and began to recruit students that autumn. Experts from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Renmin University of China, Beijing Technology and Business University and other research institutes or universities are employed to edit textbooks and give lectures, so as to provide students with the best possible resources.


The programme aims to cultivate moral integrity, ideological and political awareness, and cultural attainment along with the professional competence and communication skills necessary for human-resources managers helping build the socialist market economy. Specifically, it aims to train mastery of both qualitative and quantitative analysis and other basic skills of human-resources development and management in modern enterprises as well as government institutions.
