HSE Enters Top 50 in THE Young University Rankings Under 30 Years Old
In its 25th anniversary year, HSE has marked new achievements, entering the Top 50 in the Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings among universities under 30 years old, and in the Top 100 in the global Young University Rankings under 50. HSE has become the first Russian university to enter the top list of THE Young Universities, a global institutional ranking.
This is the sixth year that the annual Times Higher Education Young University Ranking has been published. The 2017 list includes 200 universities younger than 50 years. This year, the authors of the ranking also analyzed smaller groups of universities, Generation X, Generation Y and Millennials. HSE entered the Top 50 among Generation Y universities, which were founded between 1986 and 1999, and the Top 100 (96th) in the general THE Young Universities rankings. HSE also entered the QS 2016 Top 100 young universities ranking (51-60 cohort), the only Russian university to have done so.

According to the authors, this ranking includes young, dynamic institutions, that is tomorrow’s champions that challenge today’s elite global institutions.
