The Moscow School of Economics was founded on Rector’s decision on April 29, 2004.

The mission of MSE is to train highly-qualified specialists who possess profound knowledge of the Russian economy, who are well-acquainted with the ideas and achievements of contemporary schools of economics, who work effectively in highly competitive environments including federal and regional governmental bodies, finance and business companies, the sphere of research and higher education.

The stress in our curriculum is on students’ practical training, their participation in research work and application of advanced computer-aided technologies.

The basis of our approach to education is our belief in the integration of the potential of research centers, on the one hand, and institutions of higher education, on the other; thus our students acquire their hands-on experience at the leading institutions of RAS doing research in the field, or working in major business companies, in governmental bodies of the Russian Federation.

We invite leading scholars from RAS and renowned scientists from abroad to teach at MSE. Some courses in applied fields are delivered by CEOs from Russian corporations and banks.

Among our academic staff we count 8 Russian and 2 foreign full members of RAS, 5 Russian corresponding members of RAS, a number of leading Russian and foreign scientists.

We offer full-time 4-year Bachelor’s Degree and 2-year Master’s Degree programs. Master’s students can specialize in Economic Theory and Development of Modern Russia or in Financial Economics.

Instruction at MSE is both in Russian and in English. The degrees awarded by MSE MSU are recognized abroad.

MSE students are to pay tuition fees. Accommodation, medical services and insurance are not included in tuition fees and are paid for separately.
