The CYD and U-Multirank Ranking share philosophy, methodology and data. The U-Multirank indicators cover 5 dimensions: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and contribution to regional development. Based on these indicators, U-Multirank compares institutions with similar profiles and allows the user to create personalized rankings, selecting such indicators according to their interests and priorities. Its methodology allows to reflect, on the one hand, the diversity of the institutions of higher education and, on the other, the variety of dimensions to measure the excellence of the universities in an international context. The third edition of U-Multirank, which was presented on April 4, 2016, includes more than 1,300 institutions of higher education in 90 countries, which means more than 3250 faculties and 10,700 study programs. This third edition has also had the participation of more than 105,000 students - one of the largest samples in the world - who have completed a survey on their degree of satisfaction. In the first edition of U-Multirank, corresponding to the year 2014, participated more than 850 institutions of higher education of 70 countries and incorporated 1,200 faculties and 5,000 programs of studies. The data used by U-Multirank come from different sources: data provided by the institutions themselves, by international bibliometric databases, by patent databases and, in addition, incorporates survey results to more than 105,000 students. U-Multirank offers the possibility to select between 31 indicators grouped in the five dimensions mentioned and show the results either for the institutions as a whole - institutional ranking - or for 13 areas of knowledge. The first edition included the areas of business, physics, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering, in the second edition was expanded to computer science, medicine and psychology. In this third edition have been incorporated math, sociology, history, social work, chemistry and biology (in future editions will expand the number of areas covered). The results obtained are grouped into five performance groups, from "A" (very good) to "E" (weak). U-Multirank is a project promoted and funded by the European Union and developed by a consortium led by Prof. Dr. Frans van Vught of the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS - Netherlands) and Prof. Dr. Frank Ziegele Center for Higher Education (CHE - Germany). Other collaborating partners include the Center for Science and Technology Studies from Leiden University (CWTS), the Catholic University Leuven, the scientific literature publisher Elsevier, the Bertelsmann Foundation, the British organization for counseling Push students and the company Folge 3 software. The consortium also works closely with a number of partners that develop national rankings.
