HSE Ranks Among Top 3 Russian Universities in THE Emerging Economies University Rankings
For the first time HSE University has placed among the top twenty universities in countries with emerging economies in the THE Emerging Economies Rankings. Ranking 18th, HSE now places among the top three Russian universities on the list. Earlier this year, HSE University was the third highest ranking Russian university in the THE World University Rankings.
HSE rose from 22nd to 18th place in the THE Emerging Economies Rankings to become the third highest ranking Russian university on the list, following Moscow State University and MIPT, which took 5th and 12th places, respectively. The 2020 rankings include a total of 533 universities, 39 of which are Russian. This year, five additional Russian universities entered the list, while one was removed from the list. Almost all of the universities (19 out of 21) participating in the Project 5-100 initiative of the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education made the rankings.
‘HSE is consistently fulfilling our objective of increasing our global competitiveness, and we have again improved our position in all indicators of the rankings,’ says Irina Karelina, HSE Senior Director for Strategic Planning. ‘We made our biggest improvement in the indicator of research and citations (which accounts for half of the ranking’s weight). HR policy tools are yielding results with a delayed effect: our incentive system, which was introduced in 2009 and awards bonuses to faculty members for publications, along with our ever-increasing publication quality requirements and our ongoing recruitment of top scholars, has allowed us to steadily climb the global rankings.’
The British publication, Times Higher Education (THE), opens its annual international university rankings cycle with the release of its Emerging Economies Rankings. The Emerging Economies Rankings was first conducted in 2014, and until last year was known as the BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings. The list, however, continues to expand and include more universities from all over the world. In 2014-15, the list included 100 universities, while in 2019 it included 442. This year the ranking evaluated 533 universities. HSE University has come to be a permanent fixture in the rankings, steadily improving its position every year.
The THE Emerging Economies Rankings are based on data from the general THE World University Rankings, the latest version of which was released in September 2019. In the Emerging Economies Rankings, however, the weight of indicators concerning internationalization and research revenue are increased while those concerning citations in comparison with the institutional rating are decreased.
The publication of the latest Times Higher Education subject rankings in the Arts and Humanities concludes the annual cycle of the three main ranking agencies: THE, QS, and ARWU. Since last year, HSE University has managed to double the number of top 100 subject rankings it appears in, growing from 6 to 12.
HSE University has improved on last year's result, entering the 126–150 range of the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings. Among Russian universities, HSE University shares 2–4th place with the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and St. Petersburg State University.
