Aray Bekembayev

Full-Time MBA, 2015

Nazarbayev University was created as a result of the personal initiative of the First President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, and is an insignia of Kazakhstan in global education. The University represents the quality of education, politics, and life in Kazakhstan.

Masters graduates form a special task force and are an example for young working generation to raise their professional level.

As the Head of the Graduate Students Committee, I am proud that I had the opportunity to earn a Master’s degree at Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Business.

The 14-month period it took me to complete the requirements for becoming a Master of Business Administration was an exceptionally fine educational experience. The competency and the professionalism of the professors were nothing less than outstanding.

When I started the program in 2014, I had just entered a key point in my career, and my focus was beginning to sharpen. One of the things that most shaped my experience was my direct exposure, as part of the program, to global elite individuals in both the private and public sectors.

I am currently working in a government organization. On a daily basis, to fulfill my managerial responsibilities I must apply various aspects of theory and practical techniques that I learned in the  NUGSB Full-time MBA program, a world-class program that was developed in strategic collaboration with Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.
