The Center for Institutional Studies (CInSt) was established in 2010 on the basis of the first research laboratory of HSE University—now International Research Laboratory for Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms—with the goal of creation of a scientific center in the field of institutional economics as a part of an international cooperation network, and promoting international standards of research. We provide conditions and incentives for young and talented university graduates to participate in both scientific and teaching activities at the HSE. Our professional interests are focused on institutional analysis of different markets and sectors of the economy, among them are education, procurement, banking, non-profit organizations.
According to recent QS World University Ranking, HSE has ranked among the top 150 universities in the QS subject ranking in the subject of Education. Risen by almost 150 positions compared to last year, HSE has become a leader in this subject in Russia.
