Jindal School Releases Top 100 Management Research List
Wharton Ranked No. 1, Harvard Rises to No. 2 in Annual Measure of Productivity
Apr. 19, 2012
Harvard Business School jumped three spots to No. 2 in this year’s UT Dallas Top 100 Business School Research Rankings™, an index that tracks faculty research productivity at management schools.
Naveen Jindal School faculty productivity has risen dramatically since the rankings began, from No. 36 in North America in 2005 to its current place at No. 15.
The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania was ranked No. 1, as it has been for more than a decade.
The UTD Top 100 rankings are compiled from a database that the Naveen Jindal School of Management maintains of faculty research published in 24 leading peer-reviewed journals. The database aggregates information from the most recent five years to generate the rankings.
Current-year standings, one a list of schools in North America and a roster of universities worldwide, were determined March 15 based on articles published in those journals from 2007 to 2011. JSOM has followed productivity since 1990 and began reporting rankings in 2005.
Harvard’s upward move broke the three-year hold that the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University had at No. 2. Duke moved to No. 4 in both the North American and worldwide standings.
The Ross School of Business University of Michigan at Ann Arbor held steady at No. 3.
And at No. 5, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business rounded out the top five placeholders.
JSOM’s faculty productivity has risen dramatically since the rankings began, from No. 36 in North America in 2005 to No. 15 last year. The school remained at No. 15 in the new rankings, calculated March 15. Likewise, JSOM’s global ranking remained at No. 16.
“But this is a bit misleading,” said Jindal School of Management Senior Associate Dean Varghese Jacob,explaining that every year, the number of published works grows.
“You can’t stand still and retain your ranking,” Jacob said.
“Our faculty has, in fact, strengthened its output,” Jindal School Dean and Caruth Chair of Management Hasan Pirkul said. “Once again, this demonstrates — nationally and internationally — our serious commitment to research.
“And I’m proud,” the dean added, “that our fellow academicians and other business schools can track their research progress using The UTD Top 100.”
