MGIMO ranked among top five Russian universities

The Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) announced on Tuesday that it has once again been included in international ratings agency QS' list of top 400 world universities for 2014.

In compiling its 2014 list, QS authorities analyzed such criteria as a university's reputation in the academic community as well as its reputation among employers as evidenced by the level of demand for its graduates among international businesses. MGIMO's score improved this year over 2013's due to its growing reputation in professional circles across several countries.

Despite the fact that MGIMO competes with technical universities for top rankings by QS, its academic programs in humanities are regarded as equally beneficial to graduates as technical training programs at specialized universities, which have a more direct path for career placement.

MGIMO was one of 21 Russian universities rated by QS this year and the only Russian liberal arts institution to be included in QS' top 400 list. Moscow State University, St. Petersburg State University, Bauman University and Technical University were among the top five Russian universities to make the top 400 list. In total, the agency evaluated 863 degree-granting institutions throughout the world for its 2014 ranking.
