ADMISSION IN 2024

What's new?

In 2024 the Graduate School of Business will open its doors to applicants for six bachelor's programmes. The composition of entrance exams remains the same, but the minimum scores have been raised. The number of places has also changed. 

The conditions for submitting documents to the Moscow campus of the Higher School of Economics remain the same – applicants to the bachelor's programs can choose three fields of Study and an unlimited number of programs in each field of Study. 

In 2024, the general principles of taking into account individual achievements, which were in effect this year, will be retained. Bachelor's applicants will also be able to earn additional points for winning and prize places in olympiads and competitions, for sports achievements, and volunteer activities. 

We would like to remind you that the entrance exams include the results of the SATs (for applicants applying through the general competition) or internal exams at HSE (for foreign students, individuals with disabilities, and graduates of secondary vocational education). 

As a foreign language, we accept the results of the SATs in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish. And, of course, a profiled math exam is required for all of our programs.

What programmes, subjects and scores are available?

In 2024, the Graduate School of Business offers four programmes in «Management» and two programmes in «Business Informatics». 

HSE also provides places at its own expense for participants in the «Social Lift» project. This program is aimed at supporting bachelor's applicants who, due to life circumstances, are unable to compete on an equal footing with the majority of applicants for budget  places and cannot afford to pay for their education.

For the paid form of education at the Graduate School, there is an opportunity to receive discounts of up to 70%. Bachelor's applicants can obtain them based on the results of the SATs or other criteria.
