Russian President Congratulates HSE
Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulates the Higher School of Economics on its 25th anniversary.
Congratulations on the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Higher School of Economics!
In recent years, the university has proven itself to be one of the country’s leading educational institutions, and today it rightly enjoys its prestige as a recognized centre for progressive ideas and innovative approaches to education and research. The university trains highly qualified specialists, whose expertise is required in business, civil service, the social professions and in other areas.
It is important for the university’s staff to concentrate on fundamental research and work productively as analysists, experts and consultants – including for government agencies – and that they promote international ties and exchanges.
I strongly believe that HSE will continue to evolve dynamically and make a considerable contribution to developing the best traditions of Russian higher education.
I wish you success and all the best. Congratulations!
This year’s Golden HSE awards ceremony took place on December 1 and saw a record number of nominees with 355 contenders for 10 different nomination categories. The winners of each category were determined in two stages. In addition, this year’s event was the second time the Golden Reference award was given out. This is an ‘award within an award’ that is given to the most-cited researcher.
The latest issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond informational journal is dedicated to HSE’s 25th anniversary. The issue opens with an interview with HSE Rector Yaroslav Kuzminov, where he talks about how the University was originally formed, its guiding principles and the development trajectories it aims to pursue.
This year HSE marks the 25th anniversary of its founding. While this would usually be cause for pomp, ceremony, and long speeches, we prefer to save those for our 100th anniversary, and instead to mark the occasion with wit – and declare it an ‘anti-versary.’
As we celebrate this year’s anniversary of HSE, we will not recall everything that has happened with the university since it was founded; its milestones have been recounted numerous times already. We will instead tell you about the most important things that have happened this year.
