As a prominent representative of the Kazakh intelligentsia of the first half of the twentieth century, he made a significant contribution to the economic development of the Central Asian republics including Kazakhstan. His efforts played a crucial role in the initiation and implementation of such major projects as the construction of the Turkestan-Siberian Railway, the coal mining and metallurgical complexes of Karaganda, the non-ferrous metallurgy of Eastern and Southern Kazakhstan, as well as the oil and gas industry of Western Kazakhstan.

By the decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan in 2000 Narxoz University (then the Kazakh State Academy of Management) was named after Turar Ryskulov. After a series of transformations and a rebranding project in 2016 the university has acquired its modern name. Yet, the monument standing in front of the main building and annual conferences remain an important reminder and the recognition of the contribution of the outstanding Kazakh figure Turar Ryskulov to the economic development of the country.
Narxoz University annually organizes Ryskulov research conferences in the memory of a famous Kazakhstani public figure and diplomat- Turar Ryskulov.
