The number of HSE students from Africa has exceeded 200 this year. Today, 235 students from 31 African countries study at the university. Last year, 175 students from 29 countries studied at HSE University. The majority of African HSE students come from Nigeria, Ghana, and Egypt: most of them study on a Russian government scholarship.
HSE University and the business daily Vedomosti have signed a cooperation agreement. Students from the HSE Institute of Media will complete internships in the editorial office of Vedomosti. They will also study ‘Business Journalism Formats’, a course which will help consolidate their knowledge on the genres and formats of modern economic media.
The webinar provided details on two master’s programmes: ‘Economics and Economic Policy’ and ‘Strategic Corporate Finance’. Some international students shared their study experiences, and the faculty administration provided information on admissions, student benefits and scholarships.
On November 25th, the HSE Pokrovka building hosted the ‘The Whole World in HSE’ festival, which brought together HSE students from Indonesia, Korea, China and Armenia, as well as Europe, Latin America, and various Russian regions, to celebrate the university’s 30th anniversary.
Thirty years ago, the Russian government issued the order ‘On the establishment of Higher School of Economics’. In the three decades since then, the university has evolved from a small school for economists to a multidisciplinary university; it has become an intellectual community that makes a contribution to the well-being of the country and the world.
HSE University recently took part in EdCrunch Reload, Europe's largest conference on new technologies in education that was held in Kazakhstan. Yulia Remezova, Director for eLearning, talked at a panel discussion entitled ‘Are the Giants Still Strong? The Path of Massive Online Universities in an Ever Changing Educational Context’.

INTO HSE: your chance to get a discount or study for free at HSE University
When I started looking at different universities, programmes and departments, I contacted the Russian House (the Russian Center of Science and Culture) in Belgrade for recommendations. They said that in terms of economics, HSE University is the best, but that competition was very high.
I would like to continue studying and researching in the future. I’m not sure yet where I’d like to continue my research work, but HSE University is one of the frontrunners, of course.
Before enrolling in a master's programme, I did a preparatory programme, which was well organized. We could intensively and very quickly learn Russian and adapt to the new environment.
My choice to study at HSE University — Saint Petersburg was linked to its reputation in education and research. I analyzed the curricula of other programmes, considering the pros and cons and concluding that Master's in Comparative Politics of Eurasia was the best programme to advance my research.
It is only now after studying at HSE University that I have started to understand social statistics and have come to appreciate its applications in the social sciences. None of this would have possible if it weren't for the exceptionally brilliant, approachable, and responsive professors at HSE!
Master’s in Strategic Corporate Finance is a mixture of an academic degree and an MBA. Personally, I like the balance between practice and theory. It helps me to develop my skills, from working in a team to analytical and statistics inference skills.
