The origins of the formation of our University can be traced back in the 30s of the last century, when there was a transformation of Kyrgyzstan. Despite the tumultuous political events of those years, Yusup Abdrahmanov paid a lot of attention to the establishment and development of agriculture. In that time was very hard for young republic. Sharply reduced livestock of agricultural animals, natural growth barely provided themselves. In such a situation, it became necessary to scientifically substantiated solving complex problems associated with agricultural production. We needed educated people. It became the basis for the organization of Veterinary Institute, designed to prepare highly educated professionals.

Further development of agriculture, particularly crop and livestock production, demanded an urgent solution to the issue of increasing the productivity of fields and farms, which could be solved only by scientists agronomists. So, in 1938 opened the agronomy faculty for the training of agronomists to fodder raising and in the same year veterinary Institute was renamed the Kyrgyz Agricultural Institute. The Institute has developed and improved as a scientific and educational institution. The continuous development of the national economy of the Republic demanded the training of new specialists: engineers, hydromelioration and mechanics of agriculture. In this regard, in 1949, opened the irrigation department and in 1952 created the faculty of Mechanization of Agriculture. 
Intensive development of agriculture led to the economic approach to the efficient development of agriculture. So, there is a need in the training of economists in agricultural production, the production of which is economic faculty, opened in 1970. Today the faculty of Economics and Business is the largest in the University and prepares economists, managers, marketers, auditors, financiers, bankers to the agricultural sector.
