Within the scope of the possibility of obtaining a narrower specialization, HSE students are required to choose one of the two proposed specializations: financial economics or applied economics. The purpose of this work is to identify factors that affect the student performance, as well as differences in student performance, taking into account the choice of concentration. A study conducted on the basis of data on academic performance and socio-demographic characteristics of students enrolled in the University from 2013 to 2015 showed that the USE has a significant positive impact on academic achievement, as well as enrollment based on the profile Olympiad. But individual subjects do not affect academic achievement in equal measure. It is worth noting that the influence of a priori abilities is not long-term and they accumulate in academic performance in the first year of training. In addition, there are the effects of consonance, expressed in the positive impact of the average score of classmates and the proportion of able classmates in the group to the student's academic performance. And also revealed a negative relationship between the choice of economic concentration and academic achievement.

Key words: academic achievement, co-teaching, USE.
