HSE Enters Top 50 in QS BRICS Ranking
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.
HSE has progressed primarily in the categories of employer reputation (rising from 62nd in 2016 to 34th in 2017) and share of international students (from 40.4 to 66.3 points).
This year, the ranking includes 68 Russian universities, which is more than last year. The number of Russian universities in the Top 50 and Top 100 has also grown. Twenty-five Russian universities are in the Top 100 this year, with 15 of them being participants in Project 5-100.
QS BRICS evaluates universities on academic reputation, reputation among potential employers, publication activity, international faculty and international student ratios, and student-to-faculty ratios. In fact, QS BRICS serves as a projection of the global university ranking in the region.
The QS BRICS ranking was first compiled in 2013. This year, the QS team has expanded the list, which now includes approximately 300 of the best universities in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (previously 250 top universities had been included in the final ranking).
The QS BRICS ranking evaluates universities based on 8 key parameters: academic reputation over 5 years (30%); reputation among employers over 5 years (20%); faculty/student ratio (20%); number of publications per faculty member (10%); faculty with PhDs (10%); citations per paper (5%); international students (2.5%); and international faculty (2.5%).
HSE has once again climbed the THE World University Ranking and entered the 301 – 350 range, taking 3rd place in Russia after MSU (199) and MIPT (251-300). HSE first appeared in this ranking two years ago and every subsequent year the university has consistently improved its standing.
For the second year in a row, the QS Ranking Agency has published its Business Masters Rankings. A total of three Russian universities appeared on this ranking (HSE University, St Petersburg State University, and Ural Federal University) in four areas of business education. Last year, only two Russian universities were on the ranking.
The QS Graduate Employability Rankings has published a list of the Top-500 universities in the world in terms of graduate employability outcomes and prospects.
HSE has ranked 7th amongst universities in Eurasia. The ranking has been compiled for the first time by Times Higher Education and is presented by Kazan Federal University.
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.
