The 2017 HSE Alumni Awards will shortly be open for nominations. The awards were founded in 2007 to recognise HSE graduates who have achieved professional success in the corporate sphere or their own businesses. Over the years, the winners have included Maxim Oreshkin, Russian Minister of Economic Development, Ilya Azar and Tonia Samsonova, journalists, Ksenia Mokrushina, Director of the Centre of Urban Studies at Skolkovo Moscow School of Management, and Vladimir Potapov, CEO at VTB Capital, among others.
This year marks the fourth time we have held HSE Day, which means that an entire generation of HSE students has begun each academic year with this celebration. For them, a September focused on student life is impossible without HSE Day. We can now say that this university tradition has fully evolved.
