Foreign languages have been taught as a major since the early days of the University of Economics. For a long time, foreign languages, along with other languages, were concentrated in the “Languages” department. Since 1959 it has been a member of “Foreign Languages” department. In 1966, after the resumption of the activities of Azerbaijan Institute of National Economy as an independent institution of higher education, the department of Foreign Languages was established. In 2001, the department of Foreign Languages was divided into two parts. In different years the department was headed by S.A. Misirkhanova (1966-1976), Assistant Professor.

The English, French, German, Arabic and Spanish languages are taught at the department. The staff of the department have developed and published a large number of textbooks, teaching aids, recommendations, programs on the subjects taught. In order to further improve the teaching of foreign languages presentations on almost all topics in English and French have been prepared and made available to teachers for teaching in an interactive way.
English and French language clubs operate under the department. In these clubs, discussions are held once a week in English and French with students who are more interested in the language, on topics related to various sectors of the economy, and students’ oral speech is further developed. Every year in May, our students take part in the Olympiad organized by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan on the occasion of the birth of our national leader Heydar Aliyev for several years, and in a row, they took first and second place.
