HSE Comes in 37th in QS BRICS Ranking

HSE Comes in 37th in QS BRICS 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.

A total of 101 Russian universities are on the ranking, of which 24 are in the top 100, including 15 participants of Project 5-100.

The QS BRICS University Ranking was created in 2013. This year, the QS team again expanded the list, which now includes 400 universities in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, as compared to 300 last year.

The QS BRICS ranking assesses universities according to 8 indicators: academic reputation over a period of 5 years (30%), employer reputation over a period of 5 years (20%), faculty/student ratio (20%), papers per faculty (10%), staff with a PhD (10%), citations per paper (5%), share of international students (2.5%), and international faculty (2.5%).
