Eduniversal Confers 3 Palmes of Excellence on HSE Faculty of Business and Management
Eduniversal, the international rankings agency has awarded the 3 Palms of Excellence level to the HSE Faculty of Business and Management and recognised it as ‘an outstanding business school with increasing international influence’. An HSE representative received the certificate in a ceremony on campus at Harvard University.
With its headquarters in Paris the rankings agency specialises in higher education. In 1997 it began to rate schools and education programmes in France and since 2007 has been ranking HEIs and their programmes on the international market.
Eduniversal has five Palmes of Excellence. It applies the following criteria in evaluating business schools: national and international accreditations, school rankings, membership of national and international academic associations. Ratings are based largely on the degree to which a school is internationalised, its international reputation and its development not just on a local but a global market of education services.
The Deputy Head of the HSE School of Business Administration Anna Yakovleva and Deputy Head of the School of Logistics Andrey Vinogradov, who went to Harvard to the award ceremony, had meetings with representatives of other business schools and universities in the USA, Canada, France, Holland, Denmark, Ireland, South Korea and other countries. They discussed various options for cooperation in academic mobility and in particular, organising student exchanges.
