Founded in 1992, the HSE Faculty of Economics is the university’s oldest faculty. In the years since it was founded, it has gained a reputation as Russia’s leader in terms of higher economic education.
A fundamental education in modern economic theory and mathematics is combined with the study of applied disciplines, such as taxation, budget policies and processes, financial management and other related fields.

Congratulations to the winners of the Nobel Laureate Prediction Contest for Economics 2023!
They are Olga Peresypkina (RSVPU), Anastasia Sirotina (first-year student of the Bachelor's in Applied Mathematics and Information Science at HSE University), Mikhail Shabanov (Global Vision Asset Management LLC), Tatul Hayrapetyan (PhD student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business), and Hemant Kumar (Ettumanoorappan College, Kerala, India).
Four guessers named other favourites besides Claudia Goldin; Olga Peresypkina was the only entrant to bet solely on one name. 'I am a teacher of economics at Ural Polytechnic College and a part-time student of the "Economics and Management. Management of Professional Educational Organisation" master's programme at RSVPU,' said Olga. 'I bet on Claudia Goldin because the topic is relevant to current political events and can have a great impact in the social sphere (labor in the territories needed to rebuild after the conflict in Ukraine).'
One of the successful participants—Tatul Hayrapetyan, graduate of the NES master's programme in economics and current PhD student at Stanford—is also a winner of last year's prediction contest. Last year, he was equally successful in predicting the name of Nobel laureate Ben Bernanke.
Commenting on his doctoral studies, Tatul said: 'I started my PhD two weeks ago, and I'm still trying to get back into the learning process. Stanford is still impressive in its grandeur; I don't fully realise the magnitude of what's going on, but I'm very happy to be in a place like this, to have the opportunity to learn from the best in the business (including Nobel laureates!).' He explained that he actually bet on Goldin a year ago: 'After I predicted Bernanke's victory, I immediately made a bet for a year ahead, but because of my academic workload, I never finished the column on the NES website with this prediction. My strategy was about the same as last year: the pool of candidates is generally clear and does not change much from year to year. So the main thing in this case is to understand what area of research is relevant in a given year and has been "neglected" in the last few years of the prize. So my choice fell on Claudia Goldin and labor market research. But for the second year I failed to guess the intentions of the Nobel Committee—last year, I thought Bernanke deserved the solo prize, but after it was also awarded to Diamond and Dybvig I decided that the committee wanted to recognise more economists. That's why I also bet on Claudia Goldin's husband and co-author Lorenz Katz.'
