Associate Professor of HSE-Perm’s Department of IT in Business Participated in International Exhibition WETEX 2018
Between October 23rd and 25th, 2018, the 20th WETEX 2018 exhibition took place in Dubai, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. This event was attended by Aleksey Kychkin, Associate Professor of HSE-Perm’s Department of IT in Business, and head of the Cyber Physical Systems research group.
The Higher School of Economics has been included in the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking for psychology for the first time, placing in the 151-175 group. HSE also retained its ranking for the physical sciences (401-500) that it has held since last year.
From October 26-27, a regular meeting of the Russian Academic Excellence Project 5-100 was held in Kaliningrad. The academic institutions involved in the project presented the results of their work and plans for the upcoming period of their respective roadmaps.
The Higher School of Economics has significantly improved its position in the U.S. News Best Global Universities subject ranking in mathematics, placing 107th this year. HSE also rose in the U.S. News Best Global Universities institutional ranking, as well as the social sciences and public health subject ranking.
Every month Higher School of Economics in Perm holds meetings of international students. On October 19, students of the 1st year of the Master's programme 'Project Management: Project Analysis, Investments, and Implementation Technologies' shared the national culture and traditions of their homeland.
HSE has improved its position in two Times Higher Education (THE) rankings compared to last year. The university demonstrated the greatest growth in the Social Sciences category, rising from the 175-200 group to 126-150. Additionally, HSE improved within the 101-125 group of the Business and Economics ranking.
Academic excellence projects, similar to Russia’s Project 5-100, are common in many countries, but BRICS countries typically have the largest number of universities participating in such projects. That is perhaps why the ranking of the top universities in the five BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – prepared by the QS ranking agency is of particular interest. For two years in a row, 10 Russian universities have been steadily entering the top 50 of this ranking. This time, HSE has taken 37th place, improving its result on last year.
Between October 1st and 3rd, two professors from the University of Valladolid (Spain), Fernando Tejerina Gaite and Felix Lopez Iturriaga, delivered lectures for 1st and 2nd year Master’s students in Finance.
The new ranking of entrepreneurial universities published for the first time by the ‘Expert’ analytical centre features 38 Russian universities, 16 of which are participants in the Project 5-100. HSE took 6th place among Russian universities and 2nd place (after MIPT) among participants in the Project 5-100.
