In 2019 the Higher School of Economics (St. Petersburg) signed a cooperation agreement with the Russian-Chinese Business Park (RCBP). Students of the Master Programme “Business and Politics in Modern Asia” showed interest in the new partner of the University and many of them wanted to do an internship at the RCBP, one of the students even defended his Master thesis based on the data obtained during the internship in the Business Park.
Last year, the team of the teacher of our master's program was replenished with a young teacher Emil Kamalov, who taught one of the most important subjects for our students, namely "Methodology for Sociopolitical Research in East Asia". We decided to ask Emil Kamalov about his first year at the HSE and about his professional plans for the future.
Starting September 2020, some courses will be offered to students at all four campuses simultaneously. HSE University Vice Rector Sergey Roshchin explains how the studies will be organized and why the University is introducing these changes.
HSE became the leader of this ranking for the first time, outperforming Moscow State University, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and other Russian universities. Universities were assessed on the basis of three indicators, Quality of Education, Quality of Graduates and the ‘Forbes Factor’.
HSE University took 298th place in the 2021 QS World University Rankings, improving its ranking by 24 positions compared to last year and entering the first quartile of the world’s leading universities. HSE University now ranks among the world’s top 300 universities in two international rankings: the Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
