Forbes published a new rating of the Best-Russian Universities. Unecon takes the 25th place itself while the Unecon «graduates-in-demand» score reached the 7th place.

Forbes methodology takes into account not only the education quality but also statistical data on graduates’ employment rates, demand on the graduates in the regions, entrepreneurs amount among them. Forbes studied as well more than 1600 backgrounds of Russian elite representatives –participants of the «Forbes list» and their children, top-managers of private and state companies and politicians.

Universities was analyzed by ten indexes formed into three groups: Education quality (max 50 point), graduates «quality» (max 30 point) and «Forbes factor» - showing the Institution prestige and a share of entrepreneurs among the graduates (max 20 points).
