We are delighted to announce that the online application period for 2024 - 2025 is open!
Please note that submitting application for foreign candidates is only possible during early registration period. As the next stage of working on your Visas takes time.
Please note that before submitting the completed application form, all supporting documents must be uploaded to a personal account of the candidate.
After the submission of the application form, the extension of the deadlines for the provision of supporting documents for this period is not expected. An incomplete package of documents uploaded to the online system before the end of the Early Online Registration Period will be checked for compliance with the competitive selection requirements and may be sent for revision. Candidates who receive notification of an incomplete package of documents for participation in the competitive selection are automatically transferred to the standard registration period.
Applicants have to submit an online application form and all required documents on our portal.
Applicants will have to provide test scores from one of GRE or GMAT or ALEKS.
Applicants with a CGPA of 3.0 or more out of 4.0 CGPA from NU-STEM programs (i.e., Engineering, Mining, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry) or Economics program or from top-200 THE Ranked Universities can apply without taking the ALEKS/GRE/GMAT tests.
Nevertheless, such applicants are welcome to take the ALEKS/GRE/GMAT to increase their chances of being admitted to the Program. The Admissions Committee, at its discretion, can require an applicant to provide quantitative test scores, even if the applicant’s GPA is above 3.0 out of 4.0.
Those applicants that do not belong to the above category should take one of the ALEKS/GMAT/GRE tests. For your information, ALEKS test is administered by the school on designated days for each application stage.
The retake cost of the ALEKS test is 10 000 KZT
Two confidential letters of recommendation (to be provided by referees electronically after receiving an email request).
Recommendation letters will be automatically sent to your referees after you click the SUBMIT button. Please kindly note that your referees will be given up to 5 days to complete the online recommendation form.
We require two letters of recommendation. The most valuable recommendations come from people who know your professional skills and abilities. We require you to submit one recommendation from your current supervisor. If you do not have an immediate supervisor, you may submit a recommendation from someone who knows you well in your current position and can critique your professional performance. We strongly encourage you to contact your recommenders early in the application process. Recommendations from relatives or family and friends are strongly discouraged by the Admissions Committee. An application is not considered as “complete” until we have received all recommendations.
Before you submit your application form, please check that you have included the corporate/institutional email addresses of your referees and they have agreed to provide recommendation letters for you.
As soon as you press the “Submit application” button on your personal page, the reference form will be automatically sent to the referees’ email addresses you provided below.
