The creation of a private university ranking was prompted by the concerns of private institutions that they are not being considered the same in terms of public institutions. Currently, the quality of education offered by private universities is not being compared to that of public institutions.

The Private University Ranking was created by the AppliedHE to recognize private universities in Asia. It took into account the results of Google Scholar and other external sources. Aside from the academic reputations, Google Scholar and Google News were also used as part of the rankings process.

Richard Holmes, another member of the advisory board, said that the use of Google Scholar is very important to him. The company is run by seasoned executives from the world's leading education rankings provider, Quacquarelli Symonds.
