To create an integrated methodology for assessing educational and scientific activities of higher education institutions (HEI) following the recommendations of international ranking agencies and specific indicators that consider the institutions position at the national level.

The combined method of evaluation of the HEI activity is applied. Some evaluation indicators are inherent in the HEI (in whole or in part). Others have a specific numerical value. The calculation of the final ranking indicator is based on comparing universities according to the indicators from the methodology (ranking positions in the world educational and scientific space, education quality indicators, financial indicators, and quality of scientific activity) with the reference university, which has the best result for each indicator.

An integrated methodology algorithm for assessing the educational and scientific activities of the HEI is presented and recommendations are given for the use of each of the indicators depending on the peculiarities of the ranking (for example, general ranking or ranking by direction).

An integrated method of external evaluation of educational and scientific activities is proposed, considering both well-known indicators of world ranking agencies and specific (different from world ranking indicators) indicators for assessing universities activities at the national level.

Practical value.
The method allows determining some economic indicators of the dynamics (positive or negative) of university development and finding bottlenecks in the implementation of specific activities in the institutions educational and scientific activities. The methodology considers the actual educational activities (training of higher education institutions at all levels). It also allows us to assess the success of free economics in implementing scientific activities as a significant factor in creating new knowledge and improving educational services quality.
