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’.

The programme ‘Human Resource Management’ was placed 5th in the ‘HR Management’ category. ‘Business Strategies: Management and Consulting’ ranked 13th in the category ‘General Management’, which includes programmes from 12 countries throughout the region.

It is one of two from Russia to be included in the ranking and is in 35th place. ‘E-Business’ was ranked 67th in the category ‘Digital Marketing and E-Business’ and is one of three Russian programmes.
The Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking analyses all the master's programmes taught at universities that are part of Eduniversal’s Official Selection - the 1000 best educational institutions in the world. HR experts, as well as students and graduates of the universities, participate in the assessment.
The methodology is based on the evaluation of three criteria: the programme’s reputation, prospects for career growth and the level of salary after course completion, and the students' level of satisfaction.
HSE has improved its position in two Times Higher Education (THE) rankings compared to last year. The university demonstrated the greatest growth in the Social Sciences category, rising from the 175-200 group to 126-150. Additionally, HSE improved within the 101-125 group of the Business and Economics ranking.
Academic excellence projects, similar to Russia’s Project 5-100, are common in many countries, but BRICS countries typically have the largest number of universities participating in such projects. That is perhaps why the ranking of the top universities in the five BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – prepared by the QS ranking agency is of particular interest. For two years in a row, 10 Russian universities have been steadily entering the top 50 of this ranking. This time, HSE has taken 37th place, improving its result on last year.
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.
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.
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.
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.
