In addition, HSE was in the top 100 ranking for three subjects – Economics & Econometrics, Politics & International Studies, and Sociology – and it was the only Russian school in the Accounting & Finance 101-150 ranking. As for total number of subject rankings, HSE was third in Russia.
‘HSE has been improving rapidly since the start of the Project 5-100, ranking at the top of four to five new subject areas each year and repeatedly improving its position in the subject rankings from past years,’ according to Irina Karelina, Director of Strategic Planning at HSE.
In Social Sciences & Management, HSE ranked 155, up from 161 last year, and the university improved its ranking in nearly all of this area’s specific subjects. HSE was in the top 51-100 for Economics & Econometrics, Politics & International Studies, and Sociology; 101-150 for Accounting & Finance; and 151-200 for Business & Management. In addition, HSE made it onto three new subject rankings in Social Sciences & Management, ranking in the top 151-200 for Communication & Media Studies and the top 201-250 for both Law and Education.

In the Mathematics ranking, HSE skyrocketed 100 positions compared to last year and was in the top 151-200 of more than 1,100 universities from around the world. In Computer Science & Information Systems, the university improved its ranking by 50 positions, moving into the top 351-400 out of more than 1,200 universities included in this subject ranking.
Subject rankings most accurately reflect a university’s real achievements in science and education. They are the best way to judge the quality of a school’s academic publications, and the reputation assessment for a particular field is carried out by professionals of that field and can therefore be considered first-hand assessments, which is not common for so-called institutional or consolidated rankings that assess universities as a whole.
Universities from 74 countries are represented in the QS subject and subject area rankings. In 2017, the QS subject ranking increased from 42 to 46 different disciplines, the new subjects being Anatomy & Physiology; Hospitality & Leisure Management; Sport-related Subjects; and Theology, Divinity & Religious Studies. The methodology is built on four sources: QS’s global surveys of academics and employers, which are used to evaluate an institution’s reputation in each field, and research impact, which is based on number of research citations and the h-index in the relevant subject. This is determined by using the Scopus database, and the reputational indicators make up between 50% and 100% of the individual subject rankings.
Over the last six months, HSE has also achieved great success in other rankings as well. The university ranked 83rd in Business and Economics in the THE subject ranking and 181st in Mathematics in the U.S. News Best Global Universities Subject rankings.
