As one of the key research and teaching departments at the Higher School of Economics (HSE), the Institute of Education trains future leaders, giving them the knowledge and skills to understand and transform education in Russia and around the world. Established in 2012, the Institute has made the HSE a national leader in education reform and research in this sphere.
