Abstract

In recent years, the number of foundation universities has increased, leading to higher competition among universities, which in turn causes universities to invest more effort in improvement works. For comparison, universities take into consideration various rankings that are internationally recognized and publicly shared. Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THEWUR) are considered to be one of the most recognized. This study examines 5 Turkish foundation universities that are in the top 1000 in THEWUR and also included in the Report for Foundation Higher Education Institutions published by The Council of Higher Education (CHE) in 2018. In this application, criteria other than those used in THEWUR are used and these universities are reordered using the EVAMIX method which is one of the multi-criteria decision-making methods. The rankings obtained are interpreted in comparison with THEWUR.
