HSE University Newsletter

Dear HSE University Partners and Friends,

We are happy to present the latest edition of the HSE University Newsletter, which shares the most exciting education and science news from Q4 2021 and gives updates on essential upcoming events in international higher education and cooperation.

In important news, the Programme of HSE Development until 2030 was approved by the Russian Government. The document outlines the goals, tasks and responsibilities of the government and HSE University for its strategic development. According to the programme, the university’s strategic goal is its continuing development as a leading research, educational, analytical, consulting, and project university capable of competing head-to-head with the world’s best universities. The recent HSE Academic Council meeting emphasized that in 2022, the University will continue its operations under a sustainable development model with an even greater focus on research as a key activity. The university’s development was also addressed by the HSE International Advisory Committee during an extended meeting in which outgoing and new members of the IAC learnt more about the University’s initiatives in human capital and AI research, as well as about its plans to build a Master’s Engineering School.

We are happy to share the news that our international admissions for 2022 are now open! International students are welcome to submit their applications to HSE University via the convenient online application platform. Personal consultations with the Admissions Office are available to help applicants make the right choice and prepare all the necessary documents. There is a wide range of degree programmes to choose from, including English and Russian-taught programmes as well as online and in-person degree options offered by all four HSE University campuses. Students can also take a mock test online free of charge when considering which programmes to apply for.

We would also like to highlight that three HSE University programmes in Management have received European accreditation. The HSE Graduate School of Business bachelor's programmes in Business Administration and Marketing and Market Analytics and the HSE ISSEK English-language Master's programme in Governance of Science, Technology and Innovation have been accredited by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). Previously, the Master’s in Finance offered by HSE University in St. Petersburg also received accreditation in the Economics category. Having four degree programmes recognized by EFMD is an unrivalled achievement among Russian universities.

In December 2021, HSE University, our partners and experts addressed Global Challenges to the Education System in Digital Transformation at the eSTARS 2021 international scientific conference. The conference was hosted online by HSE University in partnership with Coursera. As in previous years, eSTARS 2021 was a space to discuss significant initiatives in the field of online education, promote qualitative transformation, and serve as a springboard for the evolution of the field.

We are also happy to announce that in-person classes will return after the winter break, though the university may change its attendance policy should circumstances change.  Up-to-date information on the COVID-19 situation is available on the HSE University Coronavirus Live website.

We thank you for your season’s greetings and your continued support, which has been vital in helping us accomplish all of this work. We would like to present gifts for under the Christmas tree from our student startups.

 

May the new year bring luck, health, and happiness to you, your family, your colleagues and friends!

We look forward to a promising 2022, and send warm greetings from all of us at HSE University,

 

Yours sincerely, 

Ivan Prostakov
