FRIENDS OF THE SCHOOL

Our university is unique in that it did not begin with Bachelor’s programs, but with short courses. The university is built upon our business experience—the members of the Board of Trustees are prominent Kazakhstani businessmen and friends of the school.

GOT TALENT

Many people presumed that we would never acquire the financial resources, educators, management, or government support we have today. However, we have been ranked the number one business school in Kazakhstan for the past three years, and we earned this distinction because we have the talent.

ENGLISH ONLY

I have always been confident that our school could achieve great success. Our strategy has included a strict focus on English and teacher development, as well as orienting ourselves toward the needs of the government and the local market.

Amirlan A. Kussainov

President, Kazakh-American University

FAIR DEMANDS

Initially, the medical department had the highest demand. Currently, the most popular faculties at KAU are humanities, international relations, journalism, tourism, and ICT. Other popular majors include management, economy, law, and accounting, which demonstrate fairly static demand.

ENSURING SUCCESS

English is the language of instruction, and our curriculum adheres to US standards. Additionally, the tuition process, schedule, and degree requirements mimic the US system. To be awarded a credit, students must spend 15 hours in the classroom and 30 hours studying independently.

NETWORK IN

Every year, we host two job fairs: one in the fall, and one in the spring. We encourage all of our students to attend and begin networking for their future. We have also signed agreements with companies in various sectors, such as finance and international relations.

OUR SCHOOL

Our school represents an innovative school model in the Republic of Kazakhstan, implementing new pedagogical technology and teaching methods that integrate the national standards and the philosophy and teaching approaches of the International Baccalaureate (IB).

KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

About 30% of our staff are expatriates who have the experience of working somewhere abroad delivering different international programs. Their experience is very appreciated here, and we share our ideas and experience, organizing collaboration between our international and Kazakhstani staff.

A NEW KIND

Private schools like Miras can offer our educational system a new kind of teacher; a teacher who is open-minded, a lifelong learner, and ready to accept change and implement new ideas in education and communications.
