The discipline of foreign language was taught from the first days of the establishment of our University. Foreign languages were combined in the Department of “Languages” for many years. They performed in the content of the Department of “Foreign Languages” in 1959. After restoration as independent higher education institution of the Azerbaijan Institute of National Economy in 1966, the chair of “Foreign Languages” was established. In 2001, “Foreign languages” chair was divided into two parts. The chair was led by a senior lector S.A.Misirkhanova (1966-1976), an Associate Professor N.A.Alakbarov (1976-1986), an Associate Professor F.D.Alimirzayeva (1987-2000) and Can. of Ph., Assistant Professor N.Nabiyev in different years. The Department is now run by a Dr. of Ph., Professor A.Abbasova.
The languages of English, French, German and Arabic are taught in this chair. The chair staff develops numerous lecture textbooks, auxiliary manuals, recommendations, programs and published them. To improve the teaching of foreign languages, presentations on all topics in English and French were prepared and introduced to the staff.
The Language clubs of English and French were established under the Department. Students who want to improve their business English or French are provided with the opportunity to attend the club, make debates and develop their speaking. Every year, in May, our students participate in the Olympiads held on the occasion of the National Leader Heydar Aliyev’s birthday among the students of higher education institutions with support of the Ministry of Education and occupy first and second places for several years.

Training facility “English” was developed for part-time students by Prof. A.Abbasova, senior lector B.Samadov, teacher G.Maharramova and Prof. A.Abbasova’s “Business English” was published in 2009.
The department is in close relation with many higher education institutions of the Europe and the world. Some teachers had passed professional development at the York University of England and Oxford University Great Britain and were awarded certificates.
There are English and French language clubs at the chair. In addition, chair organizes discussions in different economic topics for students interesting in English and French languages; the oral speech of students is being improved.
