'HSE ICEF Has a Diverse Team of Enthusiastic People'

As described by one of the original ICEF team members, Oleg Zamkov, ICEF Deputy Director and Academic Head of HSE and University of London Double Degree Programme in Economics, the success of ICEF was in choosing the right moment for the start and finding the right people, both academics and administrators. It would also be unimaginable without the advice and support from London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), especially Richard Layard, who helped design several key elements of the curriculum for double degree programme, Richard Jackmanand Amos Witztum who made a significant contribution to ICEF idea implementation.

People of ICEF

Today, ICEF is proud to be academic home to over 20 international researchers with PhD degrees in economics, finance and social sciences, representing different countries and continents: Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Ukraine, Argentina, Australia, and India. ICEF faculty members share their stories of joining the team for The HSE Look readers.

ICEF Academia: for Curious and Brilliant Minds 

In addition to the already intense studies, ICEF offers students a chance to gain even deeper knowledge of Economics and Finance. ICEF faculty members tell about ICEF Academia - a special programme aimed at students who excel at their studies and who want to acquire additional skills and knowledge.

However, some sites during the festival had a special English-language programme.


lectures will be delivered by HSE scholars at Gorky Park as part of HSE Day. Lectures will be delivered in both Russian and English.
