The project activity is one of the main elements of the Master's program at the Higher School of Economics since 2018.
Project activities are monitored and regulated by the academic supervisor and the academic council of the program.
Students of the program can choose among projects from those placed on the program's website only.
All projects are offered by professors and researchers of the program and are approved by the academic council of the program.
Students also have the opportunity to suggest a project themselves. In this case, the project should be reviewed by the academic council of the program. If approved, the project can then be chosen by the student.
The project can be implemented throughout the study year or be performed in a limited time period. The project is implemented at the 1st and 2nd year of the master's program.
The project is 4 credits, 2 credits (76 academic hours) for each academic year.
