The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania held on to its No. 1 spot, a position it has held for a decade, in the UT Dallas Top 100 Business School Research Rankings™ for 2015, released recently by the Naveen Jindal School of Management. 

The Jindal School compiles the rankings from a database of faculty research published in 24 leading peer-reviewed journals. The scoring system measures single and multiple authors of articles, as well as multiple university affiliations. Separate North American and worldwide rankings are compiled. This year’s standings are based on articles published from 2010 to 2014.

The Wharton School, which has topped the list since the index was created in 2005, had a score of 188.9 with 351 articles. Harvard University, which retained the No. 2 spot among national and international schools for the fourth consecutive year, had a score of 128.9 with 250 articles.

I am happy to see our very strong position in the UT Dallas Top 100 rankings. Our faculty continues to strengthen its output, and our standing reflects the growth and maturity of Jindal School faculty members and the extent to which they are creating knowledge in the business world.

Dr. Hasan Pirkul,
Jindal School dean and Caruth Chair of Management

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology jumped five spots to No. 3, bumping New York University to No. 4. The University of Texas at Austin rounded out the top five.

The Jindal School faculty produced 196 articles during the most recent period, placing the school at No. 11 among North American business schools and No. 12 worldwide. Last year, the school ranked No. 16 in North America and No. 17 globally. Since 2005, the school has climbed from No. 36 in North America.

“I am happy to see our very strong position in the UT Dallas Top 100 rankings,” said Dr. Hasan Pirkul, Jindal School dean and Caruth Chair of Management. “Our faculty continues to strengthen its output, and our standing reflects the growth and maturity of Jindal School faculty members and the extent to which they are creating knowledge in the business world.” 

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 list. INSEAD, based in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi, jumped three spots to No. 11, and the University of Toronto moved up one position to No. 19. 

Newcomers in the rankings this year include Tel Aviv University, which ranked No. 100; Texas Christian University, which ranked No. 98; and the Indian School of Business, which ranked No. 97.
