The Higher School of Economics has over 130 partnerships with international universities and research organizations, and is participating in several international comparative studies. The HSE is moving to developing strategic partnerships with the goal to have strategic university alliances in each region across the globe. HSE faculties and academic groups engage foreign partners to enhance the teaching, learning outcomes, and research profiles of the partners involved. The HSE supports student and academic mobility, internships, joint research, international conferences, seminars, and summer schools.
An international advisory committee was created to attract faculty, staff, and experts from the global labour market; promote the University’s achievements in the global community; and develop cooperation with the world’s leading educational and research centres. By attracting genuine talent, irrespective of the country of origin, we ensure the quality of our teaching and research. Every year, an increasing number of international students come to the HSE from more than 50 countries. English-taught degree programmes are an integral part of the HSE's high-quality curriculum.
