The present paper studies the Dimensions and Indicators of the academic international multidimensional ranking “U-Multirank”. The study of this ranking is important in Brazil nowadays, because the new evaluation of the graduate programmes in Brazil is using many aspects of multidimensional evaluation, including some concepts used by the U-Multirank. This ranking shows the weaknesses and strengths of each Academic Institution, using five Dimensions that are composed by 36 Indicators. This large number of Dimensions and Indicators gives a more complete view of the Universities, but raise questions about their independence and data availability. The top 300 European Academic Institutions listed in the 2020 edition are analyzed, explaining the Dimensions and Indicators and making statistical correlations between them.
