HSE Enters THE Subject Rankings in Physical Sciences for First Time
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.
The ranking covers universities’ achievements in mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology.
‘HSE’s entry into the THE ranking in physical sciences is undoubtedly an achievement for the university insofar as the subjects being evaluated were only launched at HSE rather recently’, said Irina Karelina, Director of Strategic Planning. ‘The Faculty of Mathematics was opened in 2007, and the Faculty of Physics began accepting students in 2017. HSE’s entry into the ranking is the logical continuation of the physical and mathematics orientation in the Faculties of Mathematics, Computer Science and the HSE Tikhonov Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM HSE). Publications in physics already account for approximately one third of the total assessed volume of HSE publications in this ranking. Right now, we have a great head start for future advancement in these subject areas where HSE previously didn’t enjoy a presence’.
Alongside HSE, nine Russian universities also made the ranking; seven of these represent the Project 5-100.
The methodology in the subject area rankings is based on the same 13 indicators as the institutional rating, which are also consolidated into five categories. The weight of the indicators varies depending on the subject area.
In 2017, the range of the ranking in physical sciences was expanded to the Top 500 universities; prior to this, only the Top 100 universities were recognized. Earlier this year, the Higher School of Economics entered the THE subject rankings in Business & Economics (101-125 group), Social Sciences (176-200 group), and Art & Humanities (176-200 group).
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.
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.
We continue talking about universities that are alongside HSE in the 51–100 group in various subject areas in the QS ranking. Today we have sociologists speaking about their ‘neighbours in the ranking’.
The Higher School of Economics has made it onto the Times Higher Education ranking in the arts and humanities category for the first time ever. The university was in the 176-200 group, demonstrating the best result among schools that participate in Project 5-100 in this field. In addition, HSE placed third among Russian universities as a whole for this subject ranking.
Higher School of Economics (HSE) has entered the 251-300 group of the QS Graduate Employability Rankings, which aim to reflect the relationship between a university’s activities and subsequent graduate employment. HSE took first place among Project 5-100’s participants and fourth place among 11 Russian universities, thus improving upon last year’s result.
In the latest Times Higher Education university rankings, the Higher School of Economics rose to the 351-400 category among 1,102 schools worldwide. This is an improvement on last year, when HSE was in the 401-500 group, with the university ranking fourth among the 27 Russian universities that made it to the ranking.
