Rector's appeal

Dear Applicants!

Great Leader Haydar Aliyev said:"The education is the future of nations".
Young generation is the future of our nation, people and independent Azerbaijan. You should get high education in order to ensure the future. High education - happy future. High education - high maintenance. High education-free, independent and happy future High education-powerful state.
Today you can ensure high education with your own choice. You should know that all diplomas given by all universities (public and private) are the same and given by the state. However, the quality of education at universities is different. I recommend choosing the university, which provides high level of education, shapes your personality and turns you tomorrow's decent individual.
Therefore, when choosing the university think, get to know the university and then decide. The wrong choice means losing the future...

Strategic development plan




Importance of Strategy plan

The university's strategic plan is a document that includes guidelines and rules for both long-term and day-to-day institutional decisions, and also ensures and validates the institution's activities within the framework of its mission, vision and values.

It should be prepared and followed in accordance with the mandates and regulations of state institutions and accreditation bodies. Having a strategic plan can allow you to track progress toward goals. When each department and team understands your company's larger strategy, their progress can directly impact its success, creating a top-down approach to tracking key performance indicators (KPIs).

Strategic planning guides educational development by providing a common vision and shared priorities. Educational planning is both visionary and pragmatic, involving the institution's personnel in defining the future of education and mobilizing resources to achieve its goals.
