This research aims to develop a data-based model for fifth-generation universities. Creating a data-driven model in a university environment is essential in education. The primary mission of higher education is to address the specific educational needs of individuals, as well as the needs of society and its economic development. The study was conducted in both qualitative and quantitative sections. The grounded theory is conducted based on the perspectives of the chancellors of Islamic Azad University. 21 people were selected using snowball sampling techniques. In the following, a six-category model is provided. Analysis was done using NVIVO software. The statistical population in the quantitative section consisted of all professors from Islamic Azad University nationwide. A sample size of 381 professors was selected using the Cochran sampling formula. The research tool was a questionnaire created by the researcher. Then, using the model presented and the suggested pattern fit, the performance of the model is predicted based on the K-Mean method in Weka and RapidMiner software. According to the results, the proposed model was approved by experts. The analysis of structural equations was also confirmed. According to the Waode algorithm model, the highest accuracy was 81%.
