My name is Almassadam Satkaliyev.
I am an EMBA student at Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Business (Class of 2014).
Currently I work as a CEO at “Samruk-Energy” JSC. Samruk-Energy is a holding company with a mandate of implementing government policy in the energy sector. The company’s main spheres of activity are generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, and coal production. Samruk-Energy is represented almost in every region of the country, employing around 24 thousand people. The Company accounts for around 47% of Kazakhstan’s total electric capacity, almost 40% of the country’s electricity generation and coal production.
Today, in the era of globalization, the most important source of a company’s competitive advantage is its internal capabilities. Therefore, successful management of an organization requires a top manager to effectively mobilize a company’s resources in a way that both maximizes internal efficiency and meets external challenges.
Nazarbayev University, which was created on the initiative of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, today is one of the most successful educational and scientific projects in the region.
