HSE’s Faculty Expansion in Home Stretch
The ‘big’ Faculty of Business and Management is being formed at the Higher School of Economics. The Faculty will include the current Faculties of Management, Logistics, and Business Informatics, which will be turned into schools.
The faculties are being merged and will cover closely related specializations. Contemporary management is not limited to organizational planning and human resource management within a company. The success of a business is currently largely determined by the ability to use new technologies – production, sales, informational, and even social technologies. Further, working with networks of suppliers and consumers brings together marketing and logistical tasks, and digital technologies help improve business processes.
In addition to this substantive basis, there is also an organizational purpose behind the faculty merger. The ‘big’ faculty makes it easier to coordinate research and education activities in the sphere of management, logistics, and business informatics. Students and staff will be able to better ‘see’ what their colleagues are doing, and they will have more opportunities to carry out joint projects.
The Faculty of Business and Management will include:
- the School of Business and Business Administration, which is what the current Faculty of Management will be called;
- the School of Logistics;
- the School of Business Informatics.
Aside from the Schools, the 'big' faculty will also have several departments that will carry out continuing professional education programmes as associated members. This was also no accident; managers’ preparation requires applied knowledge and a familiarization with the best management practices. This is why bachelor’s and master’s management programmes at the world’s leading universities are closely linked with the business education system.
Nikolay Filinov, who has been in charge of HSE’s Faculty of Management over the last several years, has been confirmed as the dean of the new faculty.
The creation of the Faculty of Business and Management marks the end of HSE’s faculty expansion process. Previously, already existing HSE departments were merged to create the ‘big’ faculties of economics, social sciences, humanities, computer science, law, world economy and international affairs, mathematics, and communications, media and design.
The first meeting of IOE Expert Committee, which includes six international experts in education from five countries alongside three Russian experts, was held on October 19-20. The Committee gave an independent assessment of the Institute's activity and recommendations for finalizing its development strategy until 2024.
As the second-oldest HSE campus after Moscow, HSE Nizhny Novgorod has over 2,700 students, over 300 faculty members, and offers 9 BA programmes and 11 MA programmes, as well as several double-degree tracks. In addition to its educational activities and research, the university also serves as a forum for the city’s cultural life and carries out several projects aimed at ensuring the public good. Valery Zusman, Director of HSE campus in Nizhny Novgorod, talked to The HSE Look about the challenges and successes of global outreach projects at HSE Nizhny Novgorod and its proactive approach.
The eighth annual session of the HSE International Advisory Committee has come to a close. Its chairman Eric Maskin, Nobel laureate in economics, summed up the results of the committee’s work.
International Advisory Committee Meets at HSE: 'The University Is Quick to Respond to Recommendations'
Each year, the HSE International Advisory Committee (IAC) meets in Moscow under the leadership of Nobel laureate Eric Maskin. Committee members focus on reorganising the post-graduate school, updating educational and staffing policies, and a number of other important issues.
A move to a new building equipped with modern research equipment, an increase in admission numbers, a rise in the number of articles faculty members publish in international journals – these are just a few of the achievements the HSE Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM) has made over the last five years. Throughout those years, the head of the Institute was Alexander Tikhonov, who passed away on December 9, 2016.
This year, many students and staff of HSE in Moscow will change the location of their study and work. Instead of some sites in districts on the outskirts of the sity, the university is using buildings in the centre. In addition to that, faculty departments which are now scattered in various parts of the city will move closer to each other. This will allow lecturers and students to spend less time commuting.
On December 25th, 2015, the HSE Academic Council summed up the results of the university’s teaching and learning activities over the past year. Here are some facts and figures from Vice Rector Sergey Roshchin’s presentation.
The HSE has concluded a process of expanding its faculties. What opportunities has this process opened up for students? How are BA and MA programmes now managed? Will this help ensure decision-making centers are closer to student audiences and scientific laboratories? Here we take the 'big' Business and Management Faculty, which now unites specialists in management, logistics, and business informatics as an example in exploring these issues.
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.
