The Moscow International Ranking “The Three University Missions” was first published in 2017 and was initiated by the Russian Union of Rectors (RUR) with the Association of Rating, Ranking, and Other Performance Evaluations Makers (ARM) chosen as its operator.

Nowadays, the third mission of the university — the relation between the university and the local community — is getting increasingly important as a condition for sustainable development of regions. However, the university’s public role is still not being considered by the compilers of existing rankings. And this is where MosIUR comes in as a fundamentally new academic ranking that, for the very first time in international practice, assesses all three key missions of a university: education, science and — the ranking’s feature — interaction with society.

The ranking is based on objective criteria exclusively and does not depend on expert voting. Instead of surveys, official published data from universities, as well as data from reputable international information providers is being used. MosIUR ranking has been successfully audited by PWC.
