Narxoz University was founded in 1963 in an era of grandiose plans, large-scale reforms and great achievements. Following the spirit of the times, the progress of the University was rapid — only a few years passed from the Foundation to the all-Union recognition.
The history of the formation of Narxoz traces the entire process of the origin and development of the system of higher economic education in Kazakhstan. The university became the Alma-Mater for several generations of successful economists, financiers, managers, and businessmen. Having won respect and recognition at the earliest stage of its existence, after half a century, the University adheres to high standards of work and strives for new outstanding achievements.
In the new Millenium Narxoz began a new life. In 2002 our University went through the process of corporatization and was one of the first Kazakhstani universities to adopt a strategic planning tool. The new approach to management is driven by the need for rapid and flexible adaptation to constantly changing market demands and rapid response to environmental challenges.
2002-2011. The new approach to management has set itself the task of organizing the most effective work of the University in terms of strategic changes in infrastructure, transition to break-even, analysis of business processes and introduction of advanced technologies in management and communications.
2012- 2014. Over the two years of the new decade the management of the University has succeeded in strengthening the strategic interaction with key stakeholders. At the same time Narxoz was one of the first universities in Central Asia to receive a grant from the "Tempus" program and is developing as a platform for additional and professional education.
2015-2017. During this period the University undergoes the rebranding and returns to its historical name "Narxoz". Much attention is paid to the anti-corruption direction in strategic planning.
2018. Over the past 2 years, the University has been actively reforming its management mechanisms and the educational process. For example, Schools and Faculties have gained more autonomy in development issues, electronic document management is being actively integrated, and a mechanism for monitoring and evaluating the quality of teaching has been introduced in order to develop the potential of teachers. Innovation almost immediately resulted in improving the quality of teaching, improving the efficiency and prestige of the University.
As a result, today Narxoz University is known as one of the leading higher educational institutions in Kazakhstan, whose main task is to train highly qualified specialists of the new generation. Their knowledge and skills will help develop the economy, business, and society of a particular city, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Central Asian region, or the world as a whole, with the broad support of the graduate community and the results of current research.
