HSE Moves Up 10 Points in THE Emerging Economies Rankings
HSE University has taken 22nd place in THE Emerging Economies Rankings, improving its position from last year. This ranking includes a total of 35 Russian universities, with 18 of them participating in the 5-100 Project.
‘In its development programme, HSE University is pursuing the key aim of attracting and retaining researchers. For this, we have introduced, and are constantly improving, our academic stimulus programme, making sure we don’t fall behind our advancing competitors. This focus has contributed to our sustainable growth in high-impact indicators such as research and citation,’ said Irina Karelina, Director of the HSE Development Programme.
The annual ranking of best universities in emerging economies is published by the British periodical, Times Higher Education, first appearing in 2014. Last year, the ranking’s name was changed from BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings to Emerging Economies Rankings.
THE Emerging Economies Rankings is constantly expanding: while in its early years, it included only the best 100 universities, in 2019, it includes 442 universities (378 in 2018; 300 in 2017; 200 in 2016) from 43 countries.
The ranking analyzes data from the main THE World University Rankings, which were published in September 2018. The difference between these rankings is in the coefficients of the indicators. For universities from emerging economies, the importance of a global outlook and research revenue are higher, while the share of the citation indicator is lower.
HSE University has placed 5th in the annual ranking of the best Russian universities compiled by the RAEX agency (RAEX Analytics). The university also came in third in terms of demand for graduates.
