HSE Improves Its Position in the International Three University Missions Ranking
HSE University continues to climb the Moscow international university ranking, The Three University Missions (MosIUR), this year taking 120th place. The ranking became the most representative in the world this year – for the first time, the number of ranked universities reached 1,500.
HSE consistently ranks 4th among 101 Russian universities represented in the ranking, despite increased competition in global and Russian higher education – this year, the number of participating universities representing 97 countries has increased by almost 30%.
The main aim of the ranking is to provide information and promote universities, which is especially important in the competition for human capital—in this case, the best students and teachers. The methodology of The Three University Missions Ranking differs from all other university rankings in that it changes the usual rankings of universities and shows their current assessment in a new way. The assessment criteria of the ranking particularly evaluate universities’ involvement with society. HSE University’s high ranking confirms not only the quality of research and education at the university, but also HSE’s active role in society.
The Moscow international university ranking has been published since 2017. This is a fundamentally new academic ranking, the first one to evaluate all three key missions of the university: education, research, and interaction with society. The ranking methodology was widely discussed in Russia and abroad, with more than 100 universities participating. 25 experts from 16 countries are members of the ranking expert council. This is the first global ranking that assesses universities’ third mission. Thanks to this innovative approach, MosIUR has been highly evaluated by experts.
