HSE Enters Top-250 of Graduate Employability Rankings
HSE University was able to place high on the Graduate Employability Ranking (201-250), outpacing its main competitors for the first time in five years. This year, the number of candidates to the ranking was increased 15% (758 universities), with new 36 universities joining the list.
The ranking includes a total of 13 Russian universities, and HSE University is the 4th among them. Our institution has improved its positions in the ranking thanks to its graduates’ enhanced reputation among potential employers, the rising number of joint publications with industry partners, and the expanding number of companies offering internships for HSE students.
Head of the Office for Alumni Relations and Career Development
Our impressive positioning in the rankings was driven, first of all, by our active approach to career development – HSE University is particularly focused on this. Over half of our students start a career at the end of their second year of studies. Furthermore, the total number of internship offers is growing, and more focus is being made on practical work with real cases, coupled with introduction to current job markets. As of today, HSE University’s partners include over 800 leading Russian and global companies, and interest in our students is on the rise annually. We, as a university, go the extra mile to make sure that our students take leading positions, not only in study rankings, but on the career market as well.
The methodology of the QS Graduate Employability ranking drastically differs from the general QS World University Ranking’s methodology. It is based on five indicators: Employer Reputation (based on surveys, 30%); Alumni Outcomes (25%); Partnerships with Employers per Faculty (25%); Employer/Student Connections (10%); and Graduate Employment Rate (10%).
In the Expert Analytical Centre’s 2020 Publication Activity Ranking, HSE University placed among the top three Russian universities in seven general subject areas and two narrow subjects. HSE made the rankings in 14 subject areas and four specific subjects; of these, HSE placed first in four subjects and/or areas.

HSE has entered the list of the world’s top 100 universities in five subjects, including History and Social Policy & Administration, where it has ranked for the first time.
According to a national survey conducted by VCIOM, HSE University ranks fifth in the ‘People’s Ranking of Russian Universities’. A total of 1,600 Russians aged over 18 participated in the survey, which was carried out through phone interviews, relying on a random sample of landline and mobile numbers.

The ranking evaluates economic, academic, and research institutions based on their publication activity in economics.
