The aggregated measure, as the combination of weights obtained by Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) as an objective, and Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP) as a subjective method is defined for determining the subject's weight. Furthermore, based on the weights assigned to subjects according to departments, we have selected subjects relevant for assessment of future students' success and recommended the appropriate study program...s.
