The great merit of NUM lies in the rich experiences and intellectual wealth amassed by the many hundreds of scholars who   have not only undertaken research work in all areas of the natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities, but who have also prepared new generations of scholars and professionals for their respective fields. A sampling of some notable research achievements by NUM scholars includes:

At the NUM, World-class center for Mongolian Studies has been established by B .Rinchen, Sh.Luvsanvandan, Ts .Damdinsuren and their students based on their research activities.

These research works have been embraced by Mongolian linguists, cultural historians, literary specialists, textologists, and by scholars worldwide.

Technology Transfer: NUM recognizes the importance of fostering the development and utilization of innovation, and that the proper management and protection of innovation as intellectual property (IP) is an essential endeavor to promote and advance the University’s mission. In March   2011, NUM established a Technology Transfer Office (TTO) responsible for protecting, managing and licensing the intellectual property of NUM, including inventions in the nanotechnology, life science, information-communication technology and physical sciences sectors, copyright protected materials such as software and images, and tangible research materials .The TTO’s mission is to promote and facilitate the transfer of NUM’s innovations for the benefit of the University and the public .Faculties are responsible for reporting any discoveries or inventions that may have commercial value and any work that seems likely to produce such discoveries or inventions to the TTO.

Entrepreneurship education: Entrepreneurship means the transformation of an idea into an enterprise that creates value—economic, social, cultural or intellectual .NUM strongly focuses on the entrepreneurship education to increase the intellectual capital and promote entrepreneurial abilities and creativity in Mongolia.
