In 2016, HSE – St. Petersburg’s master's programme in Finance was included among a prestigious consortium of European universities on the International Masters in Economy, State, and Society (IMESS) project, thus opening new avenues for cooperation between HSE and well-known universities across Europe. The programme is accredited by the Association of Certified Professional Accountants (ACCA) for Financial Management, and within this specialty has established a double-degree track with University College London (UCL). Master’s programme’s full compliance with the international standards of ACCA, PRMIA (Professional Risk Manager), and GARP (Financial Risk Manager) provides its graduates with excellent career prospects at international companies. Professor Elena Rogova, Dean of HSE St.Petersburg School of Economics and Management and Academic Supervisor of the programme, has talked to HSE News Service about its distinguishing features and the benefits it offers.
Albina Manikeeva, HSE graduate in economics, is vice president for finance at AIESEC, an international student organization. She spoke to us about the opportunities to participate in international study exchange programmes, and professional and social internships.
HSE St Petersburg is to join IMESS double degree consortium. The IMESS consortium voted to approve the proposal for HSE St. Petersburg to join the consortium, through offering a Double Masters Degree (UCL-HSE) in Finance, within the IMESS 'Economics and Business pathway'. The IMESS consortium, which is headed by University College London, consists of 7 other European university partners, including the Moscow HSE campus. This is a great success of our campus and we are proud to be the part of one of well-known international network of universities.
