Khazar University (Azerbaijani: Xəzər Universiteti), which directly translates as Caspian University is a private university located in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Founded in 1991 by Prof. Hamlet Isakhanli, the University became one of the first private universities in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia and the first in Azerbaijan to introduce Western-style, research-oriented higher education. Isakhanli formed Khazar in the interest of reforming the previous, sometimes corrupt system of higher education under Soviet rule.
