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.
HSE Alumni Awards are given annually to outstanding HSE graduates in several categories. This year, HSE will recognize both graduates who have achieved professional success in business and civil service, and those who have contributed to the popularization of sports, media industry or development of charitable and socially important projects.
