HSE Alumni

Since 1995, more than 51,000 people have graduated from HSE. Equipped with a diploma from HSE, our graduates go on to work in a variety of different fields and industries. Many of our graduates begin their careers with Russian and international companies in the private sector. Others work for educational and research institutions, governmental bodies, and non-profit organizations.

HSE’s Alumni Association helps graduates to stay connected. Alumni participate in the university’s seminars and conferences and have free access to HSE’s library. In addition, they often hold their own events in conjunction with the university and offer current HSE students internships at their companies. Each year, the Alumni Association recognizes the achievements of especially successful graduates at the HSE Alumni Awards ceremony.
