These questions were discussed during the first day of the Sixth International Conference ‘Education and Global Cities: New Horizons in University Reputation’.

Secondly, we celebrated HSE SPb Day devoted to the anniversary of the campus – it has turned twenty this year! During these years we have been dreaming about many things, but who doesn’t when they are young.
