The Mathematics programme which is offered by the HSE University trains professional researchers in mathematical sciences and experts in mathematical education. 


 M.Sc. Mathematics programme which is offered by the HSE University offers a highly individualized experience for students regardless of whether you study in English or Russian.

Students will be prepared for PhD qualifying tests in algebra, topology and analysis, have their own research agenda and experience and have teaching experience at university level.  Student exchange opportunities are also offered with École Polytechnique (Paris), École normale supérieure (Paris), Kyoto University, Leiden University, University of Luxembourg, University of Nantes, University of Tokyo.

What are the career opportunities for someone with a degree in mathematics?

Graduates of the programme have traditionally pursued careers that fall into three main areas.

The first is academia, with graduates continuing their studies in the world’s best doctoral programmes in mathematics and eventually becoming professional mathematicians. Many of our graduates have become teachers at leading universities in Russia and other countries, as well as at Russia’s top mathematics schools.

Another area is applied science, such as computer science, computer linguistics, bioinformatics, actuarial mathematics, and statistics. In this case, graduates often continue in different master’s programmes or work at leading Russian or international companies.
