HSE Joins Top-100 in the QS Rankings of Young Universities
HSE is the only Russian university to win a place in the top 100 QS rankings of universities under 50.
QS has been publishing rankings of young universities since 2012 to track the progress of young, fast-developing HEIs which present a growing challenge to the long-established players in the field of higher education.
The ratings are based on the same categories as the main QS university rankings (HSE improved its institutional indicators in 2015). They include academic reputation, student-to-faculty ratios, citations per faculty member, employer reputation, international faculty and international student ratios.
‘QS rankings are to a large extent based on reputation - 50% of a university’s points depend on its reputation among academics and with employers,’ explains Liudmila Solntseva, Director of the HSE Ranking Information Centre. ‘The old universities always have the advantage in this respect, it’s very difficult for young universities to break into the rankings when their academic reputations are on average 1.5 times lower than universities ‘over 50’. A special ranking for young universities lets us see how they are developing when they are only just starting to build their reputation.’
Universities from 40 countries are represented in the the Top 100 Under 50. The Nanyang Technological University of Singapore takes first place but Australian universities dominate with 16 of them in the top 100. HSE is in the group 81st-90th and is the only Russian HEI which has made it into the ranking.

On June 24-26, 2020, the THE Young Universities Summit will be held for the first time at HSE University in Moscow. An official hand off ceremony was held earlier at the University of Surrey, which hosted the event this year. It was not by chance that HSE University was selected to be next year’s summit host—it is the only Russian university that consistently ranks among the THE top 100 young universities, and this year it took 60th place.
In 2019 the Higher School of Economics has climbed from 84th to 60th place in the Time Higher Education (THE) world ranking of young universities. HSE University is the only Russian university to place in the top 100 of this ranking.
HSE University has retained its position in the Top 100 of the Academic Ranking of World Universities, otherwise known as the Shanghai Ranking, in sociology and mathematics. The university improved in political science and has also placed in the same group in economics. At the same time, HSE moved to the next group in management and entered new subject areas – psychology and business administration. HSE is the only Russian university ranked in four subjects: Sociology, Management, Business Administration, and Political Science. HSE University is Russia’s leader in economics and ranks in the same group as Moscow State University in mathematics.
HSE University has improved its position in the QS institutional ranking by 21 places this year, taking 7th place among Russian universities. The advancement comes thanks to a significant improvement in academic reputation and assessment of university graduates by employers.
The latest results of the QS World University Rankings by Subject demonstrate that Russian universities are continuing to make great strides in international rankings. Among the Russian universities that made the rankings, HSE tops the list with 16 specific subjects and 3 broad subject areas entering the rankings. Compared to last year, HSE has improved its performance in almost all subjects.
HSE University has taken 22nd place in THE Emerging Economies Rankings, improving its position from last year. This ranking includes a total of 35 Russian universities, with 18 of them participating in the 5-100 Project.
The Higher School of Economics has been included in the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking for psychology for the first time, placing in the 151-175 group. HSE also retained its ranking for the physical sciences (401-500) that it has held since last year.
