A survey was carried out in order to analyze the relationship between the universities’ internal factors and the indicators of their education export performance. Quantitative data was collected to describe the activities of Russian universities over recent years. Regression analysis was used to identify relationship between the indicators. The sample consisted of 173 universities from different federal districts of Russia. Achievement of the research goal necessitated the construction and quantitative assessment of various regression model specifications calculated based on how variable values changed over time. Estimates confirm a positive relationship between the number of international network partnerships, the number of double degree programs, and success in education export. The degree of diversification of education programs available to international students correlates negatively with enrollment of foreign students. The cost of educational services and the level of commercialization of higher education for foreign students demonstrate a positive relationship with education export revenues but show no relationship with the number of foreign students in a university. No relationship was found between online presence of universities, implementation of transnational education programs and education export performance. The findings are used to discuss promising vectors of education export development for Russian universities.
