At the Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Business we are dream builders.

The country is on a bold path to turn Kazakhstan into one of the leading economies of the region and a regional engine of the global economy. Our mission is to develop the business leaders, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are spearheading economic growth and innovation.

Students in our degree programs acquire the skills and business intelligence to bring state-of-the-art management approaches to the organizations they join. Our open enrollment programs bring actionable and ready-to-use solutions to business professionals from a wide range of industries. Our distinguished invited speakers’ forum has seen world leaders, captains of industry, CEOs and presidents of local, regional and global companies, and global technology leaders.

Our strategic collaboration with the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University brings additional world class faculty from the leading business school in the USA. Our academic network covers the top business schools across every continent in the world.

We are different. Our research helps companies in the region and the world to better understand and face the challenges of today’s rapidly changing environment. We don’t just teach business knowledge and management decision frameworks – we create them.

We are different. Our infrastructure is comparable to the best in the world. Comfortable. Connected. And conducive to great team work.

We are different. We are changing the country and the region, one student at a time. Come join us on our exciting journey. Join us in our flagship MBA programs. Join us in one of our many open enrollment programs. Join us as a corporate partner in our research or corporate scholarship programs.
