The School of Economics and Management brings together the HSE St Petersburg Faculties of Economics and Management. The new school, which combines the best of both of the former faculties, offers three Bachelor’s and six Master’s degree programmes.
The main goal of the new school in teaching undergraduate and post-graduate students is to prepare them for professional work and independent research. The programmes meet the highest international educational standards with their interdisciplinary approach.
The School became a big faculty in 2014. The combining of the two existing Faculties of Economics and Management in St Petersburg is part of the HSE development strategy.
Economics and mathematics in management training has always been a strength at the HSE St Petersburg Faculty of Management, providing students with the strategic thinking and planning skills necessary for real managers.
Management graduates often choose to continue their studies with an HSE post-graduate course or at major international universities where they are strong competitors and can apply their theoretical knowledge and research experience.
Many of our graduates hold jobs in major companies in St Petersburg, Moscow, Europe and other areas of the world. Their practical training at HSE, including solving cases and taking part in real projects and academic mobility programmes throughout their course, prepared them well for their new responsibilities.
Duties of the Head of the school are carried out by Professor at the Department of Finance and Head of the master's programme in Finance, Elena Moiseevna Rogova.
The new school boasts five departments which teach students in the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Economics and Management.
In addition to teaching, staff are actively involved in research and take part in major national and international conferences, seminars, forums, roundtables and winter and summer schools. These outstanding representatives of international research become directors of many projects.
All students, particularly Master’s students, are involved in research projects in the laboratory and in project teaching groups. They also participate in projects run on other HSE campuses (Moscow, Perm, Nizhny Novgorod) where they can develop their research potential and get a feel for what it is like to work in research. For many, these are the first steps towards a successful career in academia.
The School has elaborated a strategy that has been approved by the Academic Council in 2018.
