Life in Moscow

'As paradoxical as it may seem given the city’s titanic size, Moscow is, in many ways, a hidden gem. The city doesn’t figure into the travel, professional or academic plans of most Americans, who stick to more popular destinations such as London, Paris and Rome. What they don’t realize is that Moscow is one of the world’s most important centers of economic and intellectual activity–a city where ancient, modern and future converge to provide foreigners with a dynamic mosaic of experiences that would be all but impossible to obtain in any other city. One of Russia’s most progressive and well-endowed universities, the Higher School of Economics is the perfect place to get access to everything that Moscow has to offer.'

Nile Miller, intern at HSE Faculty of Economic Sciences from University of Texas at Austin
