A new ‘readymade’ ranking comparing internationalisation performance was released this month in U-Multirank. The formula of the ‘readymade rankings’ has been introduced for users’ convenience by providing a ‘finished’ rating operated by the U-Multirank Team without requiring the user to manually select indicators to define which university performs best. The ‘readymade’ rankings are an answer to the criticisms of complexity and ambiguity that the U-Multirank system inherently contains since its launch in May 2014 because of its user-driven approach that is open to infinite possibilities depending on the choices and the abilities of the user (see ACA Newsletter ‘Education Europe’, Edition May 2014). For the time being, three other readymade rankings have been produced: two for higher education institutions as a whole (Research & Research Linkages and on Economic Involvement), and one for a specific academic field (Business Studies programmes).
