By aiming at the goal, identifying the gap, improving the advantages and emphasizing interdisciplinary development, they have showed good development prospects of discipline construction and graduate education of the university. First, the efforts are unprecedented, and the measures are carried out steadily in a comprehensive way. Since the first HUTB Party Congress was held, the whole university has fought a tough battle for development. So far, 15 academicians, a number of "Changjiang Scholars," "National Distinguished Young Scholars" and other top experts have been appointed as HUTB introduced talent professors. The adjustment and establishment of the school are basically in place, forming a new development pattern of true integration of "new engineering courses + new business courses + new liberal arts course" and science. From now on, we will focus on the connotation construction, lay a solid foundation, and change from "freehand brushwork" to "meticulous brushwork" in discipline construction, talent cultivation, wisdom incubation and scientific research, and do fine work in a down-to-earth manner. Second, we need to face the need of the new era. We should stick to General Secretary Xi’s requirements of targeting the global science frontiers, serving the main economic battlefield, striving to fulfill the significant needs of the country and benefiting people's lives and health, adhere to the the national layout, strategy and thought, the "Three Highlands, Four New Missions" strategy of Hunan Province and the innovative development strategy of Changsha City, seize the development opportunity and strive to cultivate more innovative talent for the construction and development of the country, region, Hunan and Changsha. Third, we should deepen and broaden the degree of interdisciplinary development, and promote in-depth integration. Under the new national development layout, we should enhance our sense of mission and crisis, firmly follow the path of interdisciplinary development and integration , vigorously implement all-round interdisciplinary development on all fronts, and find new development directions and make new breakthroughs.

 

Party Secretary and academician Chen Xiaohong put forward three requirements for further improving discipline construction and graduate education of HUTB.

We should strengthen political construction, adhere to the four policy of the education, strengthen ideological and political education, stick to "three educations,” strengthen the construction of grass-root Party organizations, and stick to pioneer leadership.

Third, we should strengthen the mission and go all out to achieve breakthroughs in qualifying for conferring doctoral degrees. We should strengthen connotation construction based on standards and charts, propel the whole university to coordinate and play the same game, and actively strive for multi-party support to build a joint force for development. She stressed that HUTB should further understand Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, implement the decision-making arrangements of discipline construction and graduate education made by the CPC Central Committee, the State Council, the CPC provincial committee and the provincial government, remain true to our aspiration and original mission, accelerate discipline construction and graduate education reform and development of HUTB, focus on cultivating innovative, entrepreneurial, applied and compound high-level talent, bringing together the will and strength of the people to achieve reform and innovation, challenge new heights, make unremitting efforts for HUTB to achieve the goal of "Three Advances and Three Highs," make new and greater contributions to promoting the construction of a modern new Hunan and better serving national strategy.
