According to the finprom.kz analytical website, Nazarbayev University ranked 1,765th out of 2,000 elite universities in the Global 2000 list compiled by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR).
The CWUR has been publishing an academic ranking of global universities since 2012 considering the quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, and research performance without relying on surveys and university data submissions.
