HSE Joins Top 50 in QS Rankings of Young Universities
The Higher School of Economics (HSE) has taken 48th place in the QS Top 50 Under 50 ranking. Furthermore, it is the sole Russian academic institution in this ranking.
QS has been publishing rankings of young universities since 2012 to track the progress of fledgling, fast-developing HEIs, which have yet to form a long-term reputation due to obvious reasons, yet which can already present a challenge to long-established players in higher education.
The ranking includes global universities under 50 years old and is based on the same criteria as the main QS university rankings (e.g., academic reputation, student-to-faculty ratios, citations per faculty member, reputation among potential employers, international faculty and international student ratios). HSE has appeared in the ranking since 2015, and has improved its position by over 30 positions in this time. Moreover, HSE is the only Russian university present in the Top-100 of young universities according to two global rankings (QS and Times Higher Education).
Zoya Zaitseva, Regional Director for Eastern Europe and Central Asia at QS, notes: ‘HSE is one of the most ambitious Russian universities and clearly its progress in the QS World University Rankings, as well as in other ranking tables, proves they are on the right track.’
Australia and Asian countries lead in this Top-50 by number of young universities. No university from the U.S. has so far appeared in the Top-50.
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.
The programmes in Big Data Systems and International Business have entered the QS Business Masters Ranking in Business Analytics and Management. Published for the first time, the ranking is based on an analysis of over 300 universities from more than 40 countries.
For the first time ever, the Higher School of Economics has entered the Times Higher Education ranking in the physical sciences, placing in the 401-500 group. The results of the ranking were announced at a Project 5-100 conference seminar by Phil Baty, chief editor of the THE World University Rankings.
HSE’s progress in the global rankings in 2017 can also be seen in the QS BRICS regional ranking, where HSE is now 39th among all universities, moving up 23 positions as compared to last year.
Higher School of Economics (HSE) has improved its position in the U.S. News Best Global Universities Ranking for Mathematics, joining the Top-150 universities in this area. In addition, HSE joined the U.S. News Best Global Universities and the Social Sciences and Public Health rankings for the first time ever.
On its 25th anniversary, the Higher School of Economics (HSE) took 25th place in the QS EECA (Emerging Europe & Central Asia) Ranking, thus improving its result by 10 positions as compared with last year. This ranking includes 300 positions and takes into account higher education institutions in transitional European and Central Asian countries.
The Higher School of Economics has entered the Times Higher Education rankings by subject in two categories, Business & Economics (101-125 group), and Social sciences (176-200 group), showing the best result among schools that participate in Project 5-100 in these areas.
