In total during the Call for Spring 2017 we received 219 applications for the exchange in 38 partner universities from 135 BA, MA and Doctoral students (HSE campuses in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Perm and Nizhny Novgorod).
HSE and East-China Normal University (ECNU) have signed a new student exchange agreement expanding the range of opportunities for student mobility in all areas of studies, including social studies, humanities, and philosophy, as well as computer science, mathematics, and physics. The agreement was signed as part of the ECNU delegation’s visit headed by Tong Shijun, chairman of the ECNU University Council, to HSE.
According to this agreement, each party sends up to 6 students during an academic year for semester-long study from HSE master’s programmes: ‘International Business’, ‘Strategic Corporate Finance’, and ‘Political Analysis and Public Policy’, and from USL master’s programmes: Management, Corporate Communication, Marketing, Finance, Banking and Finance, and Economic Policy for participation in the exchange programme.
