ICEF Graduates Win Awards for Best Thesis Projects

The results are in for the Competition of the Best Thesis Projects, held by the Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy for the graduates of economics faculties.

Two ICEF BSs graduates were prizewinners in the competition:

Aidar Iskhakov won Second Place for his work ‘Influence of Twitter on Share Yields’. Academic Supervisor: Daniil Esaulov;

Aisha Gatamova won Third Place for her work ‘Non-material Stimulus for Football Clubs at Derby Matches’. Academic Supervisor: Inna Zaitseva.

Our students showed excellent results. Around 250 graduates (economists who defended their thesis projects last summer) took part in the competition this year. In addition to the two ICEF students who won awards, one award each went to graduates of HSE Faculty of Economics, MSU, SPbU and RANEPA.

This is not the first time that ICEF students have been winners of this competition. In 2016, Maria Maricheva won Second Place.

On behalf of ICEF, we congratulate all of the graduates and winners!
