The Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Mikhail Kotyukov is satisfied with the results of the QS Eurasian rating:

“We have ambitious goals in terms of developing export of educational services that can be achieved by combining modern educational technologies, an innovative approach, the best traditions of the Soviet school and international experience. We consider export of education as a full-fledged sphere of economic activity. The resources of the national projects "Education" and "Science" are investments in the brand "Russian education", which in the coming years should regain its leadership in the most prestigious world rankings".

The QS University Rankings: Emerging Europe & Central Asia 2020 reflects the efforts made by the best universities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia to strengthen their international reputation, create international networks of cooperation with their partners, attract talented international students and create competition in the global education market.
