Global university rankings usually have different kinds of rankings in order to stay objective. The biggest top list (from 1,000 to 1,500 world’s universities) includes the institutional ranking, which helps us see our university among all kinds of universities and countries. There are rankings by subject, which focus the target audience’s attention on a subject area and usually reflect which universities determine the global research and educational agenda in a specific field.
Other types of rankings group universities in certain groups of countries by the year of their foundation or other criteria. In contrast to institutional rankings, these use other weight indicators to determine a university’s position, taking into account the specificity of the ranking.
Today, THE published the ranking for emerging economies, and this is the third year we can see its results. It takes into account the fact that for most countries, English is neither a native nor an official language, which impacts publication rates and internationalization. In this ranking, the weight of the citation indicator is lower compared to the institutional ranking, while internationalization and industry income weigh more.
This is the second year HSE University has placed in the top 25 of the ТНЕ Emerging Economies ranking. HSE University’s internationalization indicators are continue to improve. Our bilingual environment, which has emerged at the University over the recent years, provides comfortable conditions for our international colleagues and students, and international students’ interest in HSE grows every year.
Even last year, despite the pandemic, we enrolled 12% more international students than in 2019, which had been a record year. This is a sign of the University’s high reputation among international applicants.
The ТНЕ Emerging Economies list was first published in 2014. Before 2019, it was the BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings. The ranking is constantly expanding: while in 2014-2015, it included 100 universities, this year, there are 606. HSE University remains a permanent fixture of the ranking.
ТНЕ Emerging Economies is based on data from THE World University Rankings, the latest version of which was published in September 2020. In contrast to the World University Rankings, the Emerging Economies ranking considers the indicators of internationalization and industry income at an increased weight and that of citations at a decreased weight.
HSE University has placed 66th in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2022, which assess universities younger than 50 years old. The THE Young University Ranking is the first in a series of global rankings to be published in 2022.
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 placed in the top 250 universities worldwide in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings despite increased competition. A total of 786 universities were assessed for this year’s rankings—an increase over last year. The published list of 550 universities is also 10% larger than last year’s.
HSE University has once again improved its position in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings by subject in Psychology, entering the 101–125 cohort of the world’s best universities in the field.
For the second year in a row, five HSE University master’s programmes have appeared in the QS Business Masters ranking. Moreover, the programmes in International Business and Financial Economics have improved their positions in the Top 100 of the ranking.
