Acting rector of flagship Altai State University, Sergey N. Bocharov has been included in the top 5 of the rectors' efficiency ranking according to the version of the research center “Kryshtanovskaya Laboratory” at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.

The Center for the Study of the Russian Elite under the State University of Management in collaboration with the research center “Kryshtanovskaya Laboratory” at the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration conducted a large-scale sociological study and presented the report entitled “Rectors of Russia: Can This Team Provide a Scientific and Technological Breakthrough?”.

As part of the study, the authors for the first time presented the ranking of rectors' efficiency, which was based on the integrated use of three criteria at once: indicators of scientific productivity, demand for the rector as an expert, and the dynamics of university development over the past six years (2012–2018). The following aspects of the rectors’ activity of 274 universities of the Russian Federation were also analyzed: the dynamics of the universities’ development under their leadership, socio-demographic characteristics, rectors’ experience, their scientific influence, as well as their involvement in the work of government institutions and management, interaction with business, etc.

The efficiency rating was conventionally divided into three groups, which differ in the background of the rector and the history of the university itself. S.N. Bocharov has been included in the top-5 of new rectors, who managed to make a quick breakthrough.

The inclusion of the Acting Rector of ASU S.N. Bocharov in the ranking indicates a good continuity in the strategy for reforming the flagship university of Russia, which has been implemented in recent years, as well as his detailed understanding and real involvement in the transformation processes taking place at the university.

Thus, it can be stated that a new national ranking has appeared in Russia, which once again appreciated the position of ASU at the level of the leading universities in Russia and nominated the university in a serious reputation category.
