The Faculty of Economic Sciences of the Higher School of Economics invites fourth year students (seniors) to apply to study for two years in Moscow in the modern and dynamically developing National Research University – Higher School of Economics. The Faculty of Economic Sciences is one of the most highly selective programs both at HSE and in Russia.
The Faculty of Economic Sciences, as well as HSE as an institution, considers international experience as one of the top priorities for students, programs and Deans. The Faculty of Economic Sciences and HSE together have about 200 global partners both in undergraduate and graduate levels of instruction. Undergraduate students enjoy semester or full year study abroad opportunities, while a significant portion of master’s students spend their second year at partner universities and receive two degrees upon graduation – HSE degree and one of European host universities – Sorbonne, Humboldt, Erasmus, and Lancaster to name a few. Faculty of Economic Sciences graduates continue to study abroad at the most prominent PhD and Master’s programs, that include Harvard University, Stanford, Princeton and many more. At the moment HSE hosts about a thousand international students, both exchange and degree seeking. They live in very affordable and safe dormitories, enjoy the cultural richness of Moscow and academically challenging atmosphere at HSE.
