September 30, 2018

During the past few years, Russia has been transforming to become an attractive studying destination, diversifying and implementing international educational programs.

Since 2013, Project 5-100 universities have developed and implemented over 1300 new educational programs in partnerships with the leading Russian and foreign universities and scientific institutions. Half of them are joint programs with international educational and research institutions.

In 2017 alone, Project 5-100 universities launched over 70 new programs in cooperation with European and 20 new programs in cooperation with Asian partners. China, Japan and Singapore are the key partners in Asia.

The most popular cooperation areas were science, engineering and design, information technologies, economics and management.

Master’s programs are one of the key areas of cooperation between Project 5-100 participants and their international partners, because they are a significant aspect of a university’s appeal both in domestic and international markets. A Master’s degree involves moving a step further into the realm of higher learning and research. Project 5-100 universities implemented 120 new Master’s programs in 2017 alone.  

Joint programs with the leading Russian and foreign universities are traditionally attracting students. For example, over 5,500 students were enrolled in the programs launched in 2017. Over the recent years, Russia’s higher education institutions have been increasing their presence in the most prestigious international rankings, such as QS World University Rankings: Business Masters Rankings. It ranks the best programs in marketing, business analytics, finance and management. Rankings assess programs in these areas against five key metrics: employability, entrepreneurship and alumni success, return on investment, thought leadership and class and faculty diversity.

This university is listed in all four QS Business Masters Rankings subjects.
