Academic excellence projects, similar to Russia’s Project 5-100, are common in many countries, but BRICS countries typically have the largest number of universities participating in such projects. Perhaps that is why the ranking of the top universities in the five BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, prepared by the QS ranking agency, is of particular interest. For two years in a row, 10 Russian universities are steadily entering the top 50 of this ranking. This time, HSE has taken 37 place, improving its result on last year.
