The Institute is a state educational institution on national economy realizing educational and professional programs of higher-education training and re-training of entrepreneurs and specialists in the field of small and medium-sized businesses.

The main tasks of the Institute are: to satisfy needs of citizens in taking of high education in field of management, bank activity, hotel-tourism business, retraining and raising the level of specialists and entrepreneurs skills, retraining and adaptation of unemployed, and carrying out the methodological and research works. The main focus is on small and middle-sized business and the preferable direction for the Republic, which determines the peculiarity of the Institute. One of the main aims of the Institute is to publicize and to support the prestige of entrepreneurs.


A basic educational and methodological program in all subjects has been organized. In elaboration of curricula and syllabi, especially the subjects which convey the essence and mechanisms of marketing, was studied and applied, based on the experience of teaching these subjects in a number of educational institutions in the USA, Denmark, Sweden, Austria; and also tailored to meet the needs of Kyrgyzstan's economic development.
