IIMS and ICSID team members among Best Teachers of HSE 2017

HSE students have chosen the University’s best teachers of 2016/17 academic year.

After completing the assessment form, the students were asked to select two best lecturers and workshop supervisors.  Unlike the Teaching Quality Assessment, voting was not obligatory, and the students could leave the form blank.
