HSE University Tops Forbes Best Russian Universities Ranking Third Year Running

HSE University Tops Forbes Best Russian Universities Ranking Third Year Running

© HSE University

For the third year running, HSE University has come first in the ranking of the 100 best universities in Russia, published for the fifth time by Forbes magazine.

HSE University has been recognized as the overall leader according to the results of a survey of employers for the second year in a row: the university scored 28 points out of a possible 30 according to the ‘Demand for graduates’ indicator. To assess this indicator, the authors of the ranking sent requests to 100 of the best employers in Russia according to Forbes, and asked them to answer two questions: ‘Which university graduates would you like to hire as a priority?’ and ‘Which university graduates do you consider the most skilled?’ HSE also came first in terms of teaching quality, scoring 12 out of 15 points, and one of the best universities in terms of networking quality (27 out of 30 points).

The ranking long list includes 635 universities. As the authors noted, Moscow universities have strengthened their positions in the ranking: seven from Moscow, two from St. Petersburg and only one regional university (UrFU) were in the top ten. The top 5 also included Lomonosov Moscow State University, MIPT, St. Petersburg State University and MGIMO.

The universities were assessed by five metrics: the demand for graduates, networking quality, teaching quality, international reputation, and the Forbes factor. The calculations used data from monitoring the activities of educational institutions of higher education by the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, the results of the Forbes survey of the 100 best employers in Russia and data from open sources. This year, the authors adjusted the methodology, excluding two parameters related to international issues from the calculations: the share of international students and internships. At the same time, the metric ‘International Reputation’ was preserved — it took into account the positions of universities in some of the most prestigious world rankings.

It’s nice to realize that this is a consistent result from the complex work that is being carried out at the university. HSE University is not just about facts and figures. First of all, these are people — students and employees, each indicator is the result of an enormous amount of work carried out by a united team. It’s this team that constantly improves the quality of education, establishing cooperation in academic and expert community, and helping employers by preparing successful graduates.

It's worth noting that HSE University has become the overall leader according to the results of a survey of employers from the largest Russian companies, which demonstrates the high level of training and demand for our graduates.

HSE University is represented in all global and Russian institutional rankings and consistently ranks among the top three Russian universities in terms of the total number of positions and representation in the top 100 best universities in the world in subject and industry rankings.
