New Economic School (NES)

Moscow, Russia
The New Economic School (NES) is a privately funded graduate school in Moscow established in 1992. The mission of the New Economic School is to benefit Russia’s private and public sectors through excellence in economics education and research.


NES offers two-year masters programs in economics and finance. The quality of education is assured by its International Advisory Board that consists of the world reknown economists and is responsible for making major academic decisions at NES. The core of NES is its resident faculty of 25 economists with PhDs in economics and finance from the leading universities, including Harvard, MIT, LBS, Michigan, Wisconsin-Madison. NES is a unique example of reversing the brain drain: most of its faculty are Russians who after receiving their PhD abroad came back to Russia for teaching at NES. In the ranking of economic departments by the Social Science Research Network, NES is ranked a top 100 economics department in the world and the top economics department in the post-communist countries.

Since 1992, about 900 outstanding business, government and academic leaders have graduated from the New Economic School. The majority of NES graduates work in Russias academia, private and public sector. Nearly 30% of the graduates have applied and been admitted with full fellowships to the PhD programs at the leading universities in the US and Europe. Many of them have further become tenure-track and tenured professors at the top economics departments and business schools, including MIT, Stanford, Princeton, Berkeley, Wharton, Kellogg, LSE, LBS, and others.
