The National Chengchi University was established in 1927 in Nanking as the Kuomintang's Central Party Affairs School. In 1929, it changed its name to Central Political School, after the "Northern Expedition" victory of the Nationalists in mainland China. In 1946, the National Chengchi University was formally founded, signifying the end of the Second Sino-Japanese War. When the Kuomintang lost control of mainland China in 1949, the university's activities were halted. The university opened once again in Taipei in 1954 to meet the growing demands of tertiary education in Taiwan area. At first, it was exclusively for graduates, but in 1955, undergraduate programs were created. In 1964, Yang Bi-li (楊必立) initiated the earliest Chinese MBA education.
NCCU is at the base of Chi-nan Mountain in the south of Taipei City. Apart from the Mu-cha site, NCCU has established two branch campuses in urban Taipei: The Public & Business Administration Education Center on Jing-hua Street and the Institute of International Relations on Wan-shou Road.
