The Naveen Jindal School of Management has released The UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings™ for 2014, providing a benchmark to measure faculty research productivity at schools around the globe.

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania retained the No. 1 spot it has held since the annual rankings began in 2005.
Harvard University maintained the No. 2 place in the latest North American and worldwide rankings, while New York University moved to No. 3. The standings are based on articles published in 24 leading peer-reviewed journals from 2009 to 2013.
The Jindal School tracks those article contributions to create separate U.S. and worldwide rankings. The scoring system measures single and multiple authors of articles, as well as multiple university affiliations.
The rankings document a significant increase in business faculty research in the past nine years. The 100 ranked schools produced 9,174 articles in the 24 leading journals during the most recent ranking period. That number has risen from 5,879 articles in the first period used in the rankings, from 2000 to 2004.
“We are proud of the Naveen Jindal School of Management’s strong commitment to high-quality research. Our growing reputation as an institution with a rich research environment helps us attract world-class faculty and students.”
Jindal School faculty produced 170 articles during the most recent period, placing the school at No. 16 in the North American ranking and No. 17 in the global ranking. Since 2005, the school has climbed from No. 36 in North America.
“We are proud of the Naveen Jindal School of Management’s strong commitment to high-quality research,” said Dr. Hasan Pirkul, Jindal School dean and Caruth Chair. “Our growing reputation as an institution with a rich research environment helps us attract world-class faculty and students.”
The ranking database can be searched by journal, school, author or key phrases in articles from 1990 to present. Publications follow a range of disciplines, including accounting, finance, information systems, international business, marketing, operations and organizational behavior.
Two non-U.S. schools made the top 20 worldwide. INSEAD, based in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi, was No. 14 worldwide. Hong Kong University of Science and Technology ranked No. 20 worldwide.
