Today there are 9,000 students at the HSE Graduate School of Business. Our graduates have gone on to work as heads of federal and regional government bodies and senior and mid-level managers of leading Russian and global companies.


About the HSE Graduate School of Business

The HSE Graduate School of Business opened on September 1, 2020. The School is poised to become a priority partner for leading Russian companies in the development of their HR and management technologies.

The Graduate School of Business bases itself upon the world-leading model of the university business school. It is a school within the University that brings together all business programmes and courses of different levels of study, ranging from Bachelor’s to EMBA programmes. The HSE Graduate School of Business was created through the reorganization and integration of the Faculty of Business and Management, the Institute of Innovation Management, and nine continuous professional development subdivisions.

What sets the Graduate School of Business apart is its focus on educating and developing globally competitive and socially responsible business leaders for Russia’s emerging digital economy. The School’s educational model emphasizes a project-based approach and other dynamic methods for skills training; the integration of online and other digital technologies; and the systematic internationalization of the educational process.
