A subject is, conventionally speaking, the topic of an olympiad event. The subjects do not correspond to school subjects, but rather to scientific areas in which it is possible to develop. After winning the Olympiad you may apply for a study program related to the subject you’ve chosen.
HSE INTO has a total of 16 subjects, and they are constantly changing in response to new developments in the world economy. For example, in 2021 the current subject "IT" appeared.
In one year, you can choose up to 5 subjects to take part in and apply on the basis of the best result.
