HSE Faculties Named Most Popular among Employers in 2017

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.

Future Today carried out interviews with students and representatives of leading companies in order to rate the most popular faculties among employers. As Kommersant explains, the methods for calculating ratings are established with the help of McKinsey consultants and HR specialists from the largest companies in Russia are involved in the surveys.

According to the results of surveys conducted between September 2017 and January 2018, HSE’s Faculty of Economic Sciences is the most sought-after among employers. In addition, HSE’s Faculty of Business and Management, ICEF and the St. Petersburg School of Economics and Management made the top 10.

Four more HSE faculties – Law, Computer Science, World Economy and International Affairs and MIEM – were named in the top 20. This is the best result achieved by any Russian university.
