On November 27, HSE University turns 30 years old. By world standards, HSE is still a young university—though it has already proved itself. But even for the education sector, the upcoming anniversary is a significant date, one that encourages us to assess our long journey so far, review our successes and failures, and approach the birthday as an opportunity to look forward to the future. After all, 30 years is just the beginning.

HSE University is renowned for its graduates, students, faculty and staff. We want every member of the huge university community to feel part of the holiday.

Happy anniversary, HSE University!


We are broadcasting the anniversary year! Share your news, photos and stories with us on a dedicated page.

HSE University in 2030

Turning plans into reality requires a long-term development programme with well-defined goals and objectives. HSE University has created a strategic development programme with input from almost the entire university staff.
