NUST MISIS is aiming to build an elite university with world-class level of science and education, strong international academic reputation, and the ability to recruit talents.

NUST MISIS target model is focused on the university transformation in a global leader in its main areas of competence and provides for the following common criteria:

  • World-renowned leader in specific areas of science;
  • High positions in overall rankings and rankings by subject;
  • A center of attraction of vast financial resources and best employees worldwide in the university’s specific areas of competence;
  • Generator of added value innovations.

For the proper focus of the university effort its areas of activity have been grouped into 3 clusters incorporating the university staff and faculty sharing goals and competencies in science and education.

Every cluster has its vivid strengths, specific goals and customer groups and makes a proper contribution to the attainment of NUST MISIS strategic goals.

The Program implementation is evaluated by the Key Performance Indicators (КPIs). By 2020, the target is to move NUST MISIS into the top 100 educational centers of corresponding world university rankings and to enter and gain sustainable positions in rankings by subject.

University chose six additional KPIs that allow to progress in the following areas important for NUST MISIS development: an increase of Master degree and postgraduate student ratio; reputation improvement among employers; improvement of R&D productivity; higher positions in BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings.
