The first U-Multirank ranking was released in 2014. U-Multirank is a multi-dimensional approach to international ranking of higher education institutions. The dimensions it includes are teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement. Based on empirical data U-Multirank compares institutions with similar institutional profiles and allows users to develop personalised rankings by selecting performance measures/indicators in terms of their own preferences.

U-Multirank is prepared with seed funding from the European Union and led by a consortium headed by Professor Frans van Vught of the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS) in the Netherlands and Professor Frank Ziegele of the Centre for Higher Education (CHE) in Germany. Other partner organisations include the Centre for Science and Technology Studies from Leiden University (CWTS), Catholic University Leuven, academic publishers Elsevier, the Bertelsmann Foundation, Push and software firm Folge 3. The consortium also works closely with a range of national ranking partners and stakeholder organisations.
