Welcome to the Business School

The Networked Business School

KBTU Business School was founded on the network principle – the belief that in today’s interconnected world, the best way to deliver quality is through partnership. In all areas of activity, we believe that this network model offers maximum flexibility and efficiency to deliver quality services in Kazakhstan.

Currently we have over 400 students and almost 1600 alumni. Our multinational team of faculty and administrators deliver undergraduate degrees in finance, management and accounting, MBA programs in oil and gas, finance and management, an Executive MBA in oil and gas and specialist Master's degrees in financial analysis, supply chain and project management.

Since its creation, our Business School has sought to develop partnerships on an institutional and individual level to deliver best in class services to our clients in every area of operations. We are uniquely placed within Central Asia as a node in the global education network to provide access to the region and to support key actors in the region to develop global links. We are also uniquely placed within Kazakhstan to draw on technically-oriented faculty in other units of KBTU in IT, economics, maritime engineering, oil and gas, chemical engineering and digital media to produce hybrid programs and solutions for business.

Recent examples of our successes include:

- the BS in Finance is accredited by ACCA.

-the MS in Finance is the only CFA-recognised program in Central Asia.

-the BS in Accounting and Audit is accredited by CIMA

-we have a dual degree arrangement with Geneva Business School at undergraduate level .

-our EMBA in Oil and Gas offers a dual degree with EADA Business School in Barcelona, Spain and Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (National Research University), Russian Federation.

-our graduate students take a class from the Harvard Institute of Strategy and Competitiveness designed by the global strategy guru Michael Porter and taught in KBTU Business School under license from Harvard University.

-We have exchange agreements with Kozminski University in Poland, Reading University in the UK, Boston University in the USA and EADA Business School in Barcelona, Spain as well as Soongsil and Sejong Universities in Korea and APUTI and the Technological University in Malaysia.

Our team of faculty and administrators have come together from the UK, Australia, Canada, the USA and Kazakhstan to support the development of the economy and society by stimulating a high technology, entrepreneurial future for the Republic.
