First public rating of Moscow higher educational institutions published
30.06.2005 00:00

Russian Ministry of Education and Science plans to introduce an absolutely new system of higher education quality control before 2008 have been publicized this spring and caught on.
      First independent higher educational institutions rating was presented to the officials by ReytOR (Educational Resources Rating) Agency yesterday. This two-month old organization evidently not only wants to be a pioneer in university popularity rating compilations today, but with time it aims to become a standard for officials to be oriented on while distributing budget funds between higher educational institutions.
      Today Rosobrazovanie (Russian Ministry of Education) is known to take into account only quantitative parameters of higher education institutions activities teachers with academic degrees, library equipment and room square meters per student. Andrei Fursenko, Russian Education Minister, has always appealed to be more far-seeing and demanded cooperation between employers and society, promising straight higher educational institution quality control to influence its funding since 2008.
      The rating compilated by the ReytOR Agency fits all Ministry of Education requirements. It comprised employers comments, salary of an institution graduate, when he gets employed, young specialists career development rate, institution status in educational community, matching of research and development facilities to state education standards and even how often an institution is mentioned in mass-media.
      Moscow State University expectedly ranks first. Its reputation has only two drawbacks. According to employers poll, MSU graduates generally have lower salaries than MGIMO (Moscow State Institute for International Relations) and Government Financial Academy graduates. Another drawback is MSUs second position on higher educational institution community Board of Honour. But it should be taken into account that other institutions professors could be jealous and lowered MSUs rating. The poll of Moscow university, academy and institute professors showed that they rank Russian Plekhanov Academy of Economics first.
      Higher educational institutions representatives noticeably liked this rating. Vladimir Zernov, Chairman of Russian Non-State Higher Educational Institution Association, said that the criteria system chosen is absolutely correct; it has logic, is utterly transparent and lacks the opportunity to fudge the facts to encourage favourites.
      Now ReytOR leaders are waiting for their own rating Ministry of Education will rate their work. Further destiny of the Agency, having parlaid on education reform and Mr. Fursenkos requirements, depends on the Ministrys decision.
      We will be happy to be chosen as independent assessors by the Ministry of Education. We plan to take part in this important task, but its the Ministry to decide, Vladimir Troyan, Member of ReytOR Research Council, said.
