Consistently ranked as one of Russia’s top universities, the Higher School of Economics is a leader in Russian education and one of the preeminent economics and social sciences universities in eastern Europe and Eurasia. Having rapidly grown into a well-renowned research university over two decades, HSE sets itself apart with its international presence and cooperation.
Our faculty, researchers, and students represent over 50 countries, and are dedicated to maintaining the highest academic standards. Our newly-adopted structural reforms support HSE’s drive to internationalize and the groundbreaking research of our faculty, researchers, and students.
Now a dynamic university with four campuses, HSE is a leader in combining Russian education traditions with the best international teaching and research practices. HSE offers outstanding educational programmes from secondary school to doctoral studies, with top departments and research centres in a number of international fields.
Since its founding in 1992, National Research University – Higher School of Economics (HSE) has developed from an economics institute into a comprehensive university. Based in Moscow, with branches in St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, and Perm, HSE continues to grow. Among Russian universities, HSE is a leader in economics, management, sociology, computer science, public policy, and political science.
We strive to fully prepare our students for their careers, equipping them with the competencies and skills that they need to succeed. Our origins as an economics school mean that, to this day, teaching economics is integral to curricula across faculties.
This year, many students and staff of HSE in Moscow will change the location of their study and work. Instead of some sites in districts on the outskirts of the sity, the university is using buildings in the centre. In addition to that, faculty departments which are now scattered in various parts of the city will move closer to each other. This will allow lecturers and students to spend less time commuting.
The Higher School of Economics is a national research university whose scholars are making a practical contribution to building a new Russia.
Graduates of our university work at leading Russian and foreign companies, state agencies, and conduct research in academic organizations around the world.
Research, educational, project, analysis, social and cultural work at the Higher School of Economics is all carried out in line with international academic and organizational standards. Our research and innovative developments are known far beyond Russia’s borders.
The Higher School of Economics is a research university that carries out its mission through academic, programming, peer review and sociocultural work based on international academic and organizational standards. We perceive ourselves as a part of the global academic community and believe that international partnership and engagement in global university cooperation are the key elements of our movement forward. As a Russian university, we work for the welfare of Russia and its citizens.
In September 2015, after undergoing a major overhaul, part of the HSE St. Petersburg campus opened at 3 Kantemirovskaya St., Building 1A, becoming the home of the School of Economics and Management. This building was previously the location of a weaving mill that had had several names and owners over its more than 100-year history.
