About department

In order to ensure the implementation of the decision No. 172 of the online meeting of the UNEC Scientific Council dated May 31, 2020, the department of “Russian language” was abolished on 07.09.2020 and merged with the department of “Foreign languages”.

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. N.A Alakbarova (1976-1986), Assistant Professor F.D. Alimirzayeva (1987-2000), Candidate of Philological Sciences, Assistant Professor N.H. Nabiyev.

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.

The department at different times was headed by senior lecturer S.A Misirkhanova (1966-1976), Assistant Professor N. A Alakbarova (1976-1986), Candidate of Philological Sciences, Assoc.Professor, F.Mustafayeva-Alimirzayeva (1987-2001).  At present, the department is headed by prof. A.Abbasova.

The books “Dictionary of economic terms in English and Azerbaijani” by the senior lecturer of the department F.Rahimova (2001), the book “International currency” by S.Bagirova (2002) have been published. In 2004-2005 the Russian version of the textbook “English for Businessmen” was translated into Azerbaijani. “English” textbook for part-time students was co-authored   by Prof. A.Abbasova, s / l B.Samadov, lecturer G.Maharramova ; in 2009 the book “Business English” were published  by Prof.A.Abbasova.

The department is in close contact with many universities and research centers in Europe and around the world. A number of teachers of the department have been trained and certified at York University in England and Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

In order to further improve the quality of education and obtain the latest teaching materials on economics the department of “Foreign languages”  shares  experience and cooperates with Oxford University in the United Kingdom, Cambridge University, York University, Montpellier University in France, German University in the Kingdom of Jordan, St. Petersburg Academy of Finance and Economics, and the University of Florida in the United States.
