KEIIN’s President

Paul K. Synn, Ph.D.


Hello, my name is Paul Synn, founder of KEIIN International Institute. As a young man, I left my native Korea for America to pursue “the American dream,” obtaining my PhD in finance from the Ohio State University. I ended up living there and teaching for more than 30 years, before I came to Kyrgyzstan.

I came here with one dream: to start a truly international university in Kyrgyzstan, which educates her young men and women well so that they can serve their country more effectively in this global 21th century. With a dedicated full-time staff, talented and accomplished faculty, and enthusiastic students, we have made KEIIN Institute the place for our dreams.

With our new Upper Secondary Education (10-11th grade) course for 9th graders, and our popular College Prep Course in English (formerly GEP) and 2-year-college-licensed programs in Management, Computer and Tourism, we are ready to help you fulfil your dreams. Now, we are on our way to launch a 4-year bachelor’s program with an additional department of linguistics/translation.

To support the work and scholarship of our students and faculty, we provide free wi-fi access throughout our campus, a state-of-the-art computer lab, online classroom, and a large academic library (4,000 books and growing). Located in the beautiful countryside of Ivanovka, KEIIN Institute’s 18-hectare (44.5-acre) campus also features a modern dormitory, dining hall, student café, and a large university auditorium. Our dining hall offers delicious and nutritious meals every day, prepared with care by our highly qualified chef de cuisine and trained kitchen staff.


If you are looking for a place and a community to help you realize your dreams, come and visit us! Call or email us and get to know us better. We have students from all over the region– from Bishkek, from Belavoski, from Kant, from Tokmak, from Issyk Kul, from Naryn, from Osh, from Batken, from Jalalabad, from Krasnaya Rechika, from Luxemburg… Join us and we will help you to make your dreams into a reality.

– Paul K. Synn, President of KEIIN
