The Presidential Academy is again in the top-5 best Russian universities according to the Expert RA ratings agency
RANEPA fortified its position in the second annual rating of the Russian Higher Education Institutions based on the evaluation results of the Expert RA rating agency (RAEX). The Presidential Academy took the 5th place in the rating according to the Economy and Management educational program, having received 5 additional points in comparison with the previous year.
Reputation of Higher Education Institutions is important for employers and directly influences the decision-making process on further graduates’ employment. The Expert RA agency developed a rating system of Higher Education Institutions in accordance with that. The system is based on an independent multiple-factor reputation evaluation. Participants of the poll evaluated education quality, employer demand for graduates and the level of scientific-research activity of the Russian Higher Education Institutions.
Representatives of the academic and scientific community, representatives of future probable employers, also students and graduates took part in polls. The total number of respondents exceeded 34 000 people.
Following the evaluation results the Presidential Academy fortified its position being included in the top-5 according to the Economy and Management educational program. None of new participants in this sphere were included in the top-15. According to the carried-out evaluation, the best managers and economists are trained in Moscow: seven Higher Education Institutions out of the first ten are located in the capital city. Besides, according to the rating in this sphere there is still an obvious gap between the leading Higher Education Institutions and the rest in terms of education level.
"The leading rating agency confirmed excellent reputation of the Presidential academy. We are glad that according to the quality of education and demand for graduates we are among the best Higher Education Institutions of Russia - the director of RANEPA PR Center Arkady Matkovsky comments. - The reputation of the Presidential Academy has also been proven by this year admission results: despite a very difficult demographic situation, the Academy recorded the competition over 40 applicants per place. In September we will celebrate the Academy Day for the first time: this year five years have passed since the President of Russia signed the decree on creation of the joint academy - RANEPA. And the next year our predecessors and ancestors will also celebrate two anniversaries: 95 years since The Institute of Red Professors of the All-Union Communist Party was founded and 45 years since the Institute of Management of National Economy appeared. The Higher Education Institution with such a rich history as ours is simply obliged to have excellent reputation and to be among the leaders».
