HSE took 94th place in THE ranking in Business & Economics, outperforming all the other Russian universities in this subject. In addition, the university entered the ranking in Law for the first time (151+ cohort), becoming the only Russian university represented there. HSE University also ranked in the 151-175 group in Social Sciences, holding first place ranking among Russian universities.
Britain’s Times Higher Education (THE) has published rankings in four subjects: Business & Economics, Education, Law, and Social Sciences. They include a total of eight Russian universities, six of which are participants in the Russian Academic Excellence Project 5-100. HSE University holds leading positions in three of the published subjects.
HSE University moved to the Top 100 in Business & Economics due to its growing reputation in teaching and research according to a survey of international experts, as well as growth in the number of research publications and citations. Other statistical indicators have also contributed to this improvement, such as the proportion of international students and staff, and the number of doctorates awarded to academic staff.

As Andrei Melville, Dean of the HSE Faculty of Social Sciences, commented, ‘We are maintaining our leading positions in Russia thanks to the growing quality and number of publications by our staff, and we are also attracting new international lecturers – both acknowledged academics and promising young scholars. By the way, the fact that the Faculty of Social Sciences carries out interdisciplinary research contributes to the ranking in other subjects, such as publications in Economics & Business. THE is not the only ranking in which HSE University and its Faculty of Social Sciences is recognized on a global and national level. The university is also among the Top 100 QS 2019 in Politics & International Studies and Sociology, Social Sciences & Management subject rankings.’
Publication of the THE ranking completes the series of this year’s subject rankings in social sciences and economics. It should be noted that HSE University is Russia’s top university both in Sociology and Economics under three key international rankings (ARWU, THE and QS).
The methodology used by subject rankings is based on the same 13 indicators as the institutional ranking, which are also united into five categories, although the weight of indicators varies depending on the subject area.
