Message from the Dean – NBS

Situated in picturesque Almaty at the foot of the Tian Shan Mountains, Narxoz Business School carries forward a proud legacy of service and educational excellence to Central Asia. As a regional pioneer in higher education since 1963, Narxoz has produced many of Central Asia’s most prominent business, intellectual and government leaders. This journey continues through the success of our students, both within the university and outside its walls.

NBS actively strives to break down borders tangible and intangible in order to help our students succeed. NBS is Kazakhstan’s only tri-lingual (English, Russian, Kazakh) business program. We maintain four #1-ranked business programs in the country and offer an international standard business education, grounded in the liberal arts, and oriented toward exploration and knowledge creation. As an educational leader in a land rich in nomadic tradition with the world’s most active space port, Baikonur, Narxoz aptly serves its role on the New Silk Road by facilitating the exchange of knowledge and goods between Asia and the rest of the world. 

Remaining at the forefront of the fast-changing digital economy and steeped in tradition, NBS’s commitment to creativity, innovation and knowledge exchange is apparent in our cutting-edge programs, experiential learning opportunities, and the diversity of our university community. NBS students are equipped not only with the knowledge and skills to meet future disruptive challenges, they are also given the opportunities to harness these skills to create a profoundly beneficial social impact on groups within Central Asia and beyond, both during and after their studies at NBS.

Imagine your possibilities and realize your dreams together with us. Design your future at NBS.
