The National ranking of universities of the Russian Federation, which indicates their being in demand by the Russian economy, was submitted last week by the project «Social Navigator» of the International News Agency «Russia Today» with participation of the Centre for labour market research. The study included 446 universities from 82 regions of the country. Assessment of universities was conducted by criteria such as the demand for trained professionals among employers, commercialization of the intellectual product produced by the University as well as demand for research product.
In the National ranking I. N. Ulianov Chuvash State University entered the number of demanded universities of the Russian Federation in the group «Classic universities», in which the leader is Lomonosov Moscow State University.
State, departmental, municipal and private institutions conducting specialists’ training by basic and supplementary higher education programmes participated in ranking of universities’ demand. Among them there were 132 engineering universities, 89 classical universities, 57 agricultural universities, 53 universities of management sphere, 68 humanitarian universities and 47 medical schools.
According to the leader of the project "Social Navigator" of the International News Agency "Russia today" Natalia Tyurina, the given study is of great interest not only for employers but for Russian school leavers as well, for those who make their educational choices on understanding where they will work after graduation. "Making their choice in favor of one or another University, they put on the first place not the brand of the University, but rather an opportunity to obtain in-demand profession," she said, adding that this is what explains the success of this ranking, which is represented by «Social Navigator».
As was noted by the expert, the study showed that currently in the Russian regions it is possible to get not less demanded education than in the capital. However, according to Natalia Tyurina, under modern conditions universities should on the one hand turn to the maximum towards labour market and employer, and on the other – build a serious career-guidance work with upper-form pupils.
Experts believe that such tripartite assessment shows consumers of high school services the chances of getting training that ensures competitiveness in the labour market and demonstrates effectiveness of the University involvement in solving developmental challenges of organizations, sectors and territories.
