In 2012, NCLHS was upgraded to the status of secondary school, offering educational programs in elementary, middle and high school levels. Mr Otgonbat Barkhuu is a successful entrepreneur, author of several best-selling books and a politician in Mongolia with a vision to bring prosperity to Mongolia through a reformed education system, globally competitive economy and knowledge-based society. In efforts to help the future leaders of Mongolia, Otgonbat has helped over 4500 dedicated Mongolian students to study abroad on a scholarship program in the United States, South Korea and Taiwan and raised over 5 million dollars in scholarship funding. The vision of the founder is to create a knowledge-based economy in Mongolia through sending at least 10,000 students abroad in high technology and high value sectors and bringing them back to create a strong, export driven and cluster-based economy that will be the basis of Mongolia’s sustained democracy and national prosperity.
