In June 2020, the handbook "The Best Educational Programs of Innovative Russia" was published. For the second year in a row, two educational programs of the Russian New University (RosNOU) were included in the list of the best educational programs in Russia. These are Management (bachelor’s degree) and Advertising and Public Relations (master's degree) programs of the Institute of Business Technologies of RosNOU.
The project “The Best Educational Programs of Innovative Russia” was organized by the information and analytical magazine “Accreditation in Education” together with the Guild of Experts in Vocational Education and the National Center for Professional and Public Accreditation in 2010.
In 2020, 1,458 educational organizations (universities and their branches) took part in the project. The list of the best included 3682 educational programs from 23167 presented.

In assessing the quality of the programs, the achievements of students, participation in international, all-Russian student olympiads, the receipt of grants and scholarships, high exam scores on admission, an external assessment of educational programs (international accreditation) and other indicators were taken into account.
