TOPSIS method for evaluating the Russian higher education quality.Author(s): Hui-Jie Sun, Ying-Jie Liu
In this paper, we investigate the problems for evaluating the Russian higher education quality based on the TOPSIS method. According to the traditional ideas of TOPSIS, the optimal alternative (s) is determined by calculating the distances of every alternative and positive ideal solution (PIS) and negative ideal solution (NIS). It is based on the concept that the optimal alternative should have the shortest distance from the positive ideal solution and on the other side the farthest distance of the negative ideal solution. Finally, an illustrative example for evaluating the Russian higher education quality demonstrates the practicality and effectiveness of the proposed method.
