On May 17th, 2018, NUST MISIS hosted African Student Union Day. Traditionally, the program consisted of artifact viewing, a concert, and a display of national cuisines. This year’s ceremony was the first with Daniel Bonner Mbil as the Chairman of the Union, and that played an important role during the proceedings.
For the first time, NUST MISIS has been included in the Times Higher Education (THE) — International Student Table 2018: top 200 universities. It was ranked 162nd. With this ranking, NUST MISIS has become one of just 5 Russian universities included in the ranking.
NUST MISIS has significantly improved its position in the Times Higher Education (THE) Emerging Economies University Rankings, rising from 163rd to 99th. The University has shown excellent results despite increasing competition: in 2014, representatives of 20 different countries participated in the ranking, but in 2018 that number increased to 50.
