Since the UT Dallas School of Management began reporting its research productivity rankings in 2004, the school has steadily gained momentum in its own research output. On the North American list, the school ranked No. 36 in the rankings published in 2004 and climbed to No. 17 in 2008. The most recent study registers the School of Management at No. 16 nationwide and No. 17 worldwide, up one spot from last year on both North American and worldwide lists.
The UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings™ records the top 100 business schools in North America and worldwide based on faculty research productivity in leading academic journals over a five-year period. The school has tracked the publications of business school faculty members since 1990 in 24 leading peer-reviewed academic journals. The current rankings are based on the number of articles published in those journals from 2005-2009.
“Faculty research is a fundamental part of the work of higher education and provides students with the most advanced educational experience,” said School of Management Dean Hasan Pirkul. “Resources such as the UT Dallas Top 100 allow business schools to measure their progress against other research institutions and showcase their faculty’s work in a central, accessible way.”
“Through our faculty’s efforts, we have earned a strong reputation for being a major player in business research. Our ranking as a top 20 business research school underscores that distinction,” Pirkul said.
