The Master’s programme in Mathematics at the HSE Faculty of Mathematics offers a highly individualized experience for students regardless of whether you study in English or Russian.

After successfully completing the programme, you will defend a master’s thesis and can either proceed to a research career as a doctoral student or seek work as a professional in areas related to applied mathematics. Our top graduates are regularly admitted to doctoral programmes at the world’s leading research centres.

Independent research and student involvement in the faculty’s research activities are an integral part of the curriculum. All teachers in the programme are renowned experts in their respective fields who carry out active research and are eager to work with master’s students as they take their first steps in developing their own research.

The programme has been developed for two key cohorts of students: those who are interested in pursuing an academic career in mathematics and other STEM disciplines (such as computer science, mathematical economics, etc) and bachelor’s graduates in knowledge-intensive applied areas who need to get a foundational degree in mathematics to build a career in their field of choice.

Upon graduating from our programme, students with an interest in academia are well positioned to pass doctoral exams and already have research and teaching experience in their field. Students oriented towards knowledge-intensive applications receive foundational training in mathematics irrespective of their undergraduate background.


Graduates of the programme have traditionally pursued careers that fall into three main areas.

The first is academia, with graduates continuing their studies in the world’s best doctoral programmes in mathematics and eventually becoming professional mathematicians. Many of our graduates have become teachers at leading universities in Russia and other countries, as well as at Russia’s top mathematics schools.

Another area is applied science, such as computer science, computer linguistics, bioinformatics, actuarial mathematics, and statistics. In this case, graduates often continue in different master’s programmes or work at leading Russian or international companies.

Finally, graduates pursue careers in business, economics, and finance.
