National Research University Higher School of Economics, which participates in Project 5-100, remains a fixture in the Business Masters Rankings compiled by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a UK-based global higher education company.

The league table lists the best master's programs run by the world's premier universities in four subject areas: Marketing, Business Analytics, Finance, and Management.

This year, HSE has earned a spot in each category. Two of its offerings, MSc in Big Data Systems and Master in Marketing Communications and Advertising, sit within the 51+ range of the Masters in Business Analytics and Masters in Marketing rankings, respectively. The university's International Business program is in 83rd place on the Masters in Management list, whereas its Financial Economics program holds 86th position among Masters in Finance.

Saint Petersburg University (SPbU) and its Graduate School of Management (GSOM) have also made the QS list. They feature in the Masters in Finance and Masters in Management categories.

QS draws up its Business Masters Rankings using such metrics as employability, entrepreneurship and alumni success, class and faculty diversity (gender balance, international mix), thought leadership, and return on investment.
