ICEF Master's Programme Included in Top-100 of QS Business Masters Rankings

ICEF Master's Programme Included in Top-100 of QS Business Masters Rankings

MSc in Financial Economics, offered by ICEF, has been ranked 89th out of 166 programmes. In total, five HSE programmes were included in the QS Business Rankings this year.

The QS Business Masters Rankings—in particular, the rankings in management, marketing, finance, and business analytics—have been published annually for four years. 2020 marks the first year of the ranking in supply chain management. The methodology for rating master's programmes differs significantly from those used in the QS institutional and subject rankings, though it primarily utilizes data obtained by these rankings. The ranking is based on 5 indicators, each scored on a scale of 1 to 100 points: employability, alumni outcomes, value for money, thought leadership, and class & faculty diversity. The quantitative indicators are calculated from the following sources: university data, surveys of employers and academic experts, Scopus, top management lists (Forbes and more than 150 other similar lists), and the Mercer Cost of Living City Index.

The ICEF international master’s programme was established in 2007 with the academic support from The London School of Economics (LSE). With skills requirements identical to those of the industry, the programme brings together the Russian traditions of scholastic education and the British expertise in delivering master’s degree programmes.

Extensively supported by practicing experts, the programme offers comprehensive training in Economics, Finance, and Econometrics that students complete over a short period of time. A total of more than 200 programme alumni were employed at the investment banks of the City of London, at research institutions globally, and domestically.
