The HSE Look No. 3 (38), July 2018 – Local Deeds, Global Thinking

Geography of HSE University provides ample opportunities to experience and learn about nearly half of the country, and without understanding each of the campuses with their unique features there is no way to fully understand the idea of HSE on the whole. Last year The HSE Look began a series of articles focusing in-depth on each campus, starting with HSE St. Petersburg (see October 2017 issue), university’s 2nd largest campus, and we would like to continue the series with devoting the summer issue to HSE Nizhniy Novgorod. While being unmistakably a part of HSE University, each campus reflects the unique features of its region, and the readers can learn more about it in an interview with campus Director Valery Zusman. In this issue we also talk more about education programmes at HSE Nizhniy Novgorod with Deputy Director Anna Blyakhman, get an inside look into the work of the Laboratory of Algorithms and Technologies for Networks Analysis with its head Valery Kalyagin, and travel to discover different Russias with Victor Albert, one of HSE’s international faculty members.

Nizhny Novgorod: Reaching Out Locally and Globally

As the second-oldest HSE campus after Moscow, HSE Nizhny Novgorod has over 2,700 students, over 300 faculty members, and offers 9 BA programmes and 11 MA programmes, as well as several double-degree tracks. In addition to its educational activities and research, the university also serves as a forum for the city’s cultural life and carries out several projects aimed at ensuring the public good. In 2014, Valery Zusman, Doctor of Sciences in Literature of Western Europe, America and Australia, and the then Dean of the Faculty of Humanities at HSE Nizhny Novgorod, became the director of the campus. Professor Zusman talked to The HSE Look about the challenges and successes of global outreach projects at HSE Nizhny Novgorod and its proactive approach.

A Strong Profile in IT and Humanities

The HSE Look talked to Anna Blyakhman, Deputy Director of HSE Nizhny Novgorod and Associate Professor at the Faculty of Management, about the educational programmes offered at the campus and its international students.

Developing New Research Tools

The Laboratory of Algorithms and Technologies for Networks Analysis (LATNA) in Nizhny Novgorod is one of HSE’s international laboratories. It is co-supervised by Panos Pardalos, Distinguished Professor at the University of Florida, and Valery Kalyagin, Professor and Department Head at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics. Professor Kalyagin told The HSE Lookabout the lab’s research projects, its work with students, and engagement in the educational life of the campus and HSE at large.

Discovering Russia(s)

In addition to interviews with international faculty, The HSE Lookis launching a new feature – a column about their life in Russia, what they discover in different cities, and interesting venues at HSE and beyond. If you have an interesting experience to share, please contact us at ifaculty.support@hse.ru. In this issue, we present a column by Victor Attila Albert.
