In 2017, Higher School of Economics turns 25. For a university, this is a very young age, so we will celebrate this milestone in the form of an “anti-anniversary”: we give out presents instead of receiving them, we laugh at ourselves, contemplate about the challenges we face and about how to become even better. This special issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond, which discusses the development of our university, is published as part of this “anti-anniversary year.”
In deciding to join HSE as a post-doc fellow in the Center for Institutional Studies), François Guillemin sought to combine a sense of adventure with a post-doctoral experience that would allow him to continue his research in the field of banking regulation. HSE ended up on the top of his list, and he accepted an offer to start this September.
Our researchers visited the 30th Annual Consortium of Higher Education Researchers (CHER) conference that took place in Jyväskylä (Finland) this year.
The new issue focuses on international students, their importance for higher educational institutions and the change they bring.
It is only about a month untill the Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis 2017 starts. We are excited to share the details with you.
According to HSE researchers, men with a high 2D:4D ratio (i.e. those whose index finger is longer than their ring finger) tend to be better educated. These findings are presented in the paper «2D: 4D and lifetime educational outcomes: Evidence from the Russian RLMS survey» in Personality and Individual Differences.
