Research - NUGSB’s objectives stem from three main, mutually intertwined categories – teaching, research and service. In order to train and prepare the new generation of managers, entrepreneurs, and leaders of Kazakhstan and the region, the school puts cutting edge research at the heart of its mission. By engaging in world-class research in the fields of management, finance and economics, our faculty translates global knowledge into local context. Research-informed teaching also serves society by producing future professionals who are flexible and open to new ideas. For this purpose, we strive to attract research driven faculty and create a culture where good research ideas are turned into great research outcomes. In the growth period, the focus of NUGSB will be on three main areas: Entrepreneurship and Emerging Markets.
