HSE Improves its Standing in QS Under 50 Ranking
Higher School of Economics (HSE) has improved its position in the QS ranking for universities that have been in operation for less than 50 years (Under 50). HSE now stands in the 51-60 range, moving up from the 81-90 group.
The Under 50 ranking is based on similar criteria as Quacquarelli Symonds’ (QS) institutional rating – academic reputation, student-to-teacher ratio, number of citations per academic staff member, reputation among employers, percentage of foreign instructors, and proportion of foreign students.
QS has been publishing its Under 50 ranking since 2012 for the purpose of assessing the potential and strengths of universities and institutions of higher learning, which, for circumstances beyond their control, have yet to develop long-standing reputations over many decades or even centuries, but nonetheless possess the potential to compete effectively with older, leading academic institutions.
The ranking’s current results indicate that younger universities are most actively developing in Asia and Australia. Topping this list is Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore. Furthermore, Asian institutions of higher learning hold six places in the Top-10 of the Under 50, while 10 Australian universities rank in the Top-50.
Now ranking in the 51-60 range, HSE, as with last year, is the sole Russian university represented on the QS Under 50 Rating.
The Higher School of Economics has entered the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) for the first time. The ranking is known for its strict selection criteria. This year, 12 Russian universities, including 10 participants of Project 5-100, entered the ranking. Until 2016, only 2 representatives of Russia were included- MSU and St. Petersburg State University.
The following Master’s programmes offered at HSE’s Faculty of Business and Management have entered the Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking in 2017-18 in the Eastern European region: ‘Project Management: Project Analysis, Investments, and Implementation Technologies’, ‘Marketing Communications and Advertising in the Contemporary Business’, ‘Business Strategies: Management and Consulting' and ‘Human Resource Management’. For the first time, the world-wide ranking included the master's programme ‘Experience Economy: Hospitality Management and Tourism’. The global ranking also includes the programmes ‘Big Data Systems’ and ‘E-Business’.
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.
HSE has topped the list of universities in the Russian Academic Excellence Project 5-100 once again, having been ranked in 13 subjects and 3 subject areas in the QS World University Rankings. The university has entered the top 100 in ‘Sociology’ and ‘Political and International Studies’ categories, as well as the top 100 in ‘Social Sciences and Management’.
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.
