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.
The THE Young Universities Ranking is a projection of the general THE institutional ranking on the group of young universities, and includes the same performance indicators, recalibrated in terms of their impact factor. Traditionally, reputation accounts for 33% in the THE University Rankings, but since a young university needs more time for public and academic acknowledgment, this indicator has a lower impact in the young university ranking (22%). According to the authors, this ranking includes young, dynamic institutions, that is tomorrow’s champions that challenge today’s elite global institutions.
‘Being part of this ranking is a confirmation of the success achieved by the entire HSE team, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. It took HSE only 25 years to grow from a small institution founded by a team of enthusiasts to an internationally recognized university that is renowned publically and academically not only in Russia, but also abroad. HSE focuses its effort on publication activities, improving academic processes, and increasing internationalization, which has allowed the university to rank highly among dynamic developing universities,’ commented Evgeny Yasin, HSE Academic Supervisor.
Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education rankings, commented on HSE’s success:
‘It is great news that the Higher School of Economics is listed in our 2017 Young University Rankings – the first time a Russian institution has featured in the six-year history of the ranking.
The university is particularly strong among its young peers at providing strong teaching and research environments and working closely with industry, achieving high scores in the teaching, research and industry income pillars of the ranking.’
Nearly 32,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, and Perm currently study at HSE. The university features 216 graduate programmes, 41 double-degree programmes implemented in partnerships with international universities, 32 international laboratories headed by leading international scholars, 31 research institutes, and 57 joint departments with international and Russian research and commercial organizations.
HSE has climbed almost 40 places in the QS World University Rankings and now occupies 343rd place among the world's best universities. This is thanks to a significant improvement in its academic reputation and the employers' assessment of university graduates.
According to research by Future Today, HSE’s Faculty of Economic Sciences is the most in-demand among employers. A further three HSE faculties were named in the top 10.
The programmes in Big Data Systems and International Business have entered the QS Business Masters Ranking in Business Analytics and Management. Published for the first time, the ranking is based on an analysis of over 300 universities from more than 40 countries.
For the first time ever, the Higher School of Economics has entered the Times Higher Education ranking in the physical sciences, placing in the 401-500 group. The results of the ranking were announced at a Project 5-100 conference seminar by Phil Baty, chief editor of the THE World University Rankings.
