About the Faculty

Founded in 1992, the Faculty of Economic Sciences is HSE’s largest and oldest research entity. The Faculty brings together the organizational and financial capabilities of HSE’s front-running teaching and research centres, the intellectual capital and professionalism of the university’s leaders, and the university’s longstanding connections with renowned international universities, research institutes and multinational companies. 

The Faculty’s diverse educational programmes provide students with the theoretical and practical fundamentals of economics and enable them to pursue an individualized educational trajectory tailored to their preferences, goals, and interests.

Students at the Faculty of Economic Sciences enjoy a broad spectrum of opportunities for international mobility, from short-term study abroad programmes to double degree and combined programmes with an increasing number of leading foreign universities, including Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University, Humboldt University of Berlin, Erasmus University (Rotterdam), Lancaster University School of Management (Great Britain), the ESSCA School of Management (France, Hungary), University of Turin (Italy), University of Groningen (the Netherlands), Western University (Canada), University of Ferrara (Italy), Catholic University of Milan (Italy)  and others.

In addition to course work, students can engage in cutting-edge research carried out by the Faculty’s academics at its laboratories and at other HSE research institutes and international laboratories. From the outset, students are directly involved in faculty research activities.

Prominent employers, including both Russian and multinational companies, are integrated directly into the Faculty of Economic Science’s activities. Many of these companies have constant representation within the Faculty, including Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and KPMG. Specialists and practitioners representing leading employers play major role in the Faculty’s teaching activities.

After graduating from the Faculty’s undergraduate programmes, more than half our alumni continue their education at the graduate level, and many work and study simultaneously. 10% of our graduates are admitted to graduate programmes abroad.  We have a graduation rate of 77% from bachelor's programmes, and 91% of graduate students are awarded an MSc.  Only 5% of Faculty graduates report not working or studying during their first year after graduation from an undergraduate programme, while about 88% of Master’s programme graduates find employment or opt to continue to study in the first year following their graduation.

The Faculty of Economics consists of the following departments:

·        Department of Theoretical Economics

·        Department of Applied Economics

·        Department of Finance

·        Department of Mathematics

·        Department of Statistics and Data Analysis

In addition, the Faculty is a partner institution of the International College of Economics and Finance, which was established in 1997 in cooperation with the London School of Economics. It offers BSc and MSc programmes, as well as a wide range of courses and programmes in English for international students. For more details, please see the ICEF website.
