HSE Ranks Among Top Russian Universities in Three University Missions
Despite increasingly growing competition, HSE University сonsistently ranks fourth among Russian universities and 120th among world’s top universities in the Moscow International Ranking ‘Three University Missions’ (MosIUR). In 2021, the total number of universities in the global ranking increased from 1,500 to 1,650 compared with last year.
This year, Three University Missions has become the world’s most representative ranking by number of universities. Its list covers higher education institutions from 97 countries, including 112 Russian universities, which is 11 universities more than in 2020.
The Moscow International University Ranking is a completely new academic tool that assesses all three key missions of the university: education, research activities, and interaction with society. HSE University’s high position in the ranking proves that its ‘third mission’ is on par with the quality of its education and research activities.
The ranking’s methodology has been subject to a comprehensive public discussion involving more than 100 universities. The Three University Missions ranking has paved the way for a pivot of global rankings towards an appreciation of the university’s value for society—the ‘third mission’, which used to fall outside the focus of rating agencies. Thanks to its remarkable novelty, MosIUR has been received positively by experts.
The ranking relies entirely on objective criteria approved by international experts; no reputational polls are used. Unlike other existing popular counterparts, the Three University Missions ranking applies a much wider range of information. Information sources include open data collected from the official websites of universities and national government agencies, as well as independent international sources like Clarivate Analytics (a supplier of data and metrics from InCites and Global Institutional Profiles Project (GIPP)); leading online mass education platforms; Wikipedia; Google, Yandex, Baidu; Facebook; Twitter; VK; Sina Weibo; Alexa, a global leader in web analytics; the websites of international student Olympiads; and the scientific awards websites from the IREG List of International Academic Awards.
