Thirty-year-old HSE graduates share their stories as part of the new project
In 2023, the first Master's programme 'Chemistry of Molecular Systems and Materials' at the HSE Faculty of Chemistry will enrol students. Half of the study time will be devoted to research projects. Dmitrii Roitershtein, Academic Supervisor of the programme, spoke about the programme to the HSE News Service.
The AI Journey international conference is a major platform for sharing cutting-edge innovations in artificial intelligence and machine learning. In late November 2022, AIJ was once again hosted by Sber. The conference was attended by HSE researchers from the Faculty of Computer Science and the Centre for Artificial Intelligence.
Researchers at the HSE Graduate School of Business analysed posts on the Odnoklassniki social network and created a model for calculating subjective well-being. They registered the lowest levels of subjective well-being in the morning, and the highest—in the late evening. The results of the study were published in the Mathematics journal.
Faiz Arsyad from Indonesia is a first-year master’s student of Agrarian Economics at the HSE Faculty of Economic Sciences. In his interview, he talks about his first months of studies at the university, which include meeting top governmental officials, attending agricultural conventions, and participating in the HSE Career Marathon.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
