Higher education is the bridge between the cultivation of modern talents and the development of enterprises. Whether the subject education can keep up with the times and follow the progress of the times, respond to the industry's current situation, and cultivate talents that meet the needs of the industry is a major issue. Therefore, this research is aimed at five universities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area of China that provide complete human resource management undergraduate professional personnel training courses, Zhaoqing University (ZU), Guangdong University of Finance (GUF), Guangzhou University (GU), Jinan University (JU) and Shenzhen University (SU) are used to compare and analyze the issues of curriculum planning, type modules, credit structure, and study among the various schools, and analyze the problems that appear in the process of studying this professional knowledge, to put forward relevant reflections and suggestions. The study found that: (1) ZU and GU have the highest requirements for the graduation total credit planning; (2) The order of emphasis on course types varies from school to school. ZU places too much emphasis on general education and practical courses while neglecting professional courses; (3) Planning, and compared with the four schools, the curriculum lacks an international perspective. The research results are useful for reference in curriculum planning in the field of human resource management in colleges and universities, and can also provide a reference for colleges and universities to establish relevant departments or categories of education and training.
