The HSE Academic Council created the Faculty on January 30, 2015. The Faculty includes the School of Business and Business Administration, the School of Logistics, and the School of Business Informatics, which had all previously been separate HSE faculties. The merger stems from the crossover and mutual impact of the schools’ areas of academic and professional focus. The Faculty of Business and Management offers students diverse courses taught by full-time HSE instructors and invited business practitioners. Students are also given the opportunity to carry out fundamental and applied projects at various academic centres and laboratories.

The HSE Academic Council founded the Faculty on January 30, 2015. It unites specialists in management, logistics, and business informatics to explore issues in these fields.
The new faculty brings together three schools that previously functioned as separate faculties: The School of Business and Business Administration (formerly the Faculty of Management), The School of Logistics and the School of Business Informatics. This combination has been carefully thought out. In this day and age, a solid understanding of the latest IT innovations is needed in order to achieve management, logistics, and marketing goals.
The joint faculty makes it possible for those who are involved with IT to collaborate with, for example, their colleagues in the HR Management Department.
This integration made it possible to expand the variety of courses offered to students at the 'big' faculty, as well as to attract those specialists who are used to a more narrow audience to teaching and research positions. The three schools enjoy lively interaction within the 'big' faculty – through its courses, teaching staff, experts, business contacts and sharing of ideas.
The Faculty offers four BA programmes and fifteen MA programmes. HSE has adopted a new approach to administering its educational programmes. They will now be administered by academic councils and academic supervisors who create the foundations of the programme and the study plans, and select the teaching staff. Only then are these documents endorsed by the HSE's Education and Teaching Methods Council and Academic Council.
Nikolay Filinov, Dean of the Business and Management Faculty, describes the difference between the old system and the current approach as being something akin to the difference between repertory and non-repertory theatre.
Departments or schools are roughly equivalent to repertory theatre, with their troupe and repertoire formed according to the available talent.
There are advantages to being a department – it is an environment in which new talent, i.e. young researchers and teachers, enjoy the space they need to grow and develop. This is why the departmental structure will be retained within the Faculty's schools. However, these departments will no longer have an administrative function — their focus will be solely on education and teaching methods. They will discuss graduate students' dissertations, teaching plans and course programmes. Teachers will be able to be part of several different departments simultaneously, depending on their research interests.
The Faculty also offers associate member status (i.e. they retain their management autonomy) to sections involved in the provision of Additional Professional Education. These include the Higher School of Business Informatics, the Institute of Innovation Management, and the International Center of Training in Logistics,
The term 'additional professional education' is not the best one to use here, as it seems to invoke a sense of repetition or obligation. Professor Filinov feels that it is neither 'additional' nor 'ancillary' — rather, it is related to management education and, to an extent, business informatics programmes.
'If you look at global best practice, you see that the most successful business schools combine what we would call fundamental educational programmes and what we would call additional educational programmes,' Professor Filonov says. 'What's more, MBA programmes are leading business schools' flagship offerings — the best teachers teach them and the latest research results are used.'
The Faculty retains and expands opportunities to carry out fundamental and applied research, as well as consulting work. All the academic sections (The Center for Study of Social Organization of a Firm, Laboratory of Network Organizational Forms) will continue to operate. The expanded Faculties will stimulate the development of interdisciplinary research projects.
The Faculty has become a forum for joint discussion and research, as well as a recruiting ground for the best teachers from the business world.
