The National Research University Higher School of Economics is a leading government funded university in Russia. The Faculty of Mathematics was opened in 2008. Since then, it has become a leading place in Russia for attracting researchers in Mathematics and mathematical students. We have Bachelors’, Masters’ and Ph.D. programs in Mathematics. The department collaborates with the Steklov Mathematical Institute and the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (world renowned research institutes) and has student exchange programs with the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris and the University of Kyoto.
