This MSc programme trains professional researchers in mathematical sciences and experts in mathematical education in Moscow, one of the world's most famous centres of mathematics. Students have the opportunity to study at partner universities in France and Japan and graduate prepared to enter top PhD programmes.
Having successfully completed the programme, graduates will:
Be prepared for PhD qualifying tests in Algebra, Topology, and Analysis
Have their own research agenda and experience
Have experience teaching at the university level
Learn from leading experts in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics
Choose from a wide range of special topics courses and research seminars
Study in a stimulating, dynamic, and supportive learning environment
Elect to combine our MSc programme with international MSc or integrated graduate programmes
Work closely with an academic advisor who will supervise your course project and Master’s thesis
Take advantage of several short-term study abroad opportunities at HSE partner universities in France and Japan
Qualify to continue in the HSE PhD programme or go onto other international PhD programmes in Mathematics (HSE graduates are accepted by top mathematics schools, including Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Berkeley, Chicago, Columbia, Toronto, Ann Arbor, Berlin, Hanover, Nice, etc.)
Take part in a wide variety of mathematics events in Moscow
Apply for teaching and research assistantship positions
Study for free on a full-tuition scholarship
Graduates who wish to pursue a research career in mathematics are expected to continue their training at the PhD level. Otherwise, this MSc diploma certifies a substantial background in mathematics, which will give graduates a competitive advantage when applying to jobs in finance and economics.
