Average Years of Work
At NU GSB, I have received a quality education, access to top researchers, and the unforgettable experience of residencies and internships. Being a top business school in the region, NU GSB offered me challenging courses, excellent networking, and a world of opportunities.
I chose NU GSB because of the friendly and supportive atmosphere and outstanding rich resources from the whole world. As one of the best universities in Central Asia and the only English-medium institution in Kazakhstan, Nazarbayev University to me is an academic utopia with open-mind & countless possibilities.
Top-quality professors with strong expertise, modern facilities, well-organized curriculum, and networking opportunities make NU GSB the best business school in the region. The program taught me the fundamentals of finance with real-life applications, deepened my research & analytical skills, as well as boosted my communication & problem-solving skills.
I have a legal education and work experience in Big4. I realized that knowledge of finance can enhance my professional value. At the same time, I learned about the start of the Master of Science in Finance program at the Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Business. It is a young university, but probably the best in Central Asia. The program that it is proposing exactly corresponded to what I wanted to study for a long time. And I decided to join the university. I am confident that after graduating from business school I will be able to compete in a professional market.
