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.
