Welcome to ISE 

International School of Economics (ISE) has been providing a unique opportunity for the students from Kazakhstan and Central Asia to obtain the University of London diploma while studying in Almaty. Our students have received tremendous value from studying the EMFSS programmes developed by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Since our inception in 2005, ISE has been a place of excellence, academic freedom, and outstanding scholarly activities. We teach our students not only how to study and apply their knowledge but also to be leaders and critical thinkers. World class education makes our students competitive in the global markets which is reflected in their placements both in international companies and top western universities.
