About the Programme
Undergraduate Economics programme is a selective programme with a significant math component. Some classes are delivered in English. Its aim is to prepare students for work as highly-qualified leaders and analysts in top Russian and international companies, governments, research centers and educational institutes. Students receive broad knowledge in the areas of economic theory, mathematics, information processing technologies, statistics, econometrics, and foreign languages, while also studying applied disciplines in-depth and producing original research of their own. Over the last 20 years, HSE’s economics programme has become one of the leading programmes of its kind and is highly valued by business leaders in Russia and abroad.
A degree from HSE gives students a doubtless competitive advantage, which is proven by the high demand for HSE graduates on the labor market and their success in both international organizations (e.g., the IMF), Russian governmental entities (Russia’s Ministry of Economic Development, Accounts Chamber, Ministry of Finance, and others) and in prominent Russian and international companies such as SberBank, Gazprombank, Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Norilsk Nickel, UralSib, Lukoil, IBM, and many others. Many graduates continue their education at a graduate level, including the top ranked Master and PhD programs abroad, many of whom work and study simultaneously.
