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.
