MGIMO Makes it into Top Five Russian in “Expert RA” Ranking

June 7th, the rating agency Expert RApresented the results of its 6th annual ranking of Russian universities during the V International Forum of Leading Russian Universities.

Rising by two points compared to last year, MGIMO took the 5th place in the final table of the ranking, confirming once again its position as one of the top universities in the country. Additionally, since the first release of the rating in 2012, MGIMO has climbed six places.

Moreover, MGIMO as of custom took the second place in the category concerned with «conditions for providing quality education». While other institutions are struggling to maintain their teacher to student ratio, MGIMO performs excellently in this category, with many classes taught in small «tutorial style» groups. MGIMO also remains very attractive to applicants as reflected by the high United State Exam results of its newly enrolled students. The University significantly improved this year concerning the level of demand of its graduates by employers, moving up from 13th to 7th place.

“Expert RA” ratings are created based on the analysis of statistical data and surveys. The Agency is the 1st in Russia and the 4th in the world to successfully pass the audit of the IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence.
