The Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Mikhail Kotyukov commented on the results of the rating: “We have ambitious goals in terms of developing the 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. In addition to the task of doubling the number of foreign students in the next 5 years, a key component for us is the qualitative component - attracting talented youth to the country, its employment in Russia and the growth of income from the export of educational services. We consider the export of education as a full-fledged sphere of economic activity. With such high competition in the global education market that exists today, the search for unique educational niches and the development of competitive products is not an easy task. This is a challenge to the country and every university. Thanks to the resources of the national projects “Education” and “Science”, we can differentially approach working with various groups of foreign applicants, which is extremely important. Besides, we provide continuous training of teachers, the development of the infrastructure of universities and cities. All this is an investment in the brand "Russian education", which in the coming years should regain its leadership in the most prestigious world ratings. "
