HSE Vice Rector Sergey Roshchin
While discussing the strategy for implementing online degrees at universities during the eSTARS 2021 international conference, HSE Vice Rector Sergey Roshchin said: ‘We consider it important to develop the university's educational portfolio and to consider the possibilities of fully online programmes. We will launch new programmes in 2022. We’ve already announced admissions for 17 programmes: 4 bachelor's and 13 master's. HSE University currently has the largest number of online bachelor's and master's programmes in Russia.’
HSE University was the first Russian university to launch a master’s programme on Coursera—the English-taught Master of Data Science programme launched in February 2020. In September 2021, HSE University held admissions for 11 online programmes, 9 of which were new.
In September 2021, HSE University launched four more English-language online degree programmes on the platform: Master of Computer Vision, Master of Finance, Master of Business Analytics, and Master of Data and Network Analytics. The Smart LMS platform hosts two bachelor's programmes (Design, Computing and Data Science) and the HSE Online education platform features four master's programmes (Computing and Data Science, Economic Analysis, Digital Product Management, and Marketing Management).
