Elite Ranking for Management Research

The Department of Management at the University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business ranks higher in research productivity per capita than the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and McCombs Business School at the University of Texas-Austin, among others. That finding is according to the recently released Texas A&M/University of Georgia (TAMUGA) Rankings of Management Department Research Productivity, which placed the college's management department 10th nationwide for publications in 2020 when controlling for size of faculty.

The TAMUGA rankings compile and analyze data for 151 universities" management departments, calculating the number of publications in top-tier academic journals for each business school. Rankings are calculated per year as well as for the previous five years.

In addition to the #10 ranking for 2020 on a per capita basis, the Lundquist College of Business Department of Management in 2020 ranked #27 overall, #17 among business schools at public universities, and #5 on the West Coast.

For the five-year period from 2016 to 2020, the TAMUGA rankings placed the college's management faculty at #14 on a per capita basis, #28 among public business school, #5 on the West Coast, and #45 overall.

Overall, for the five-year period analyzed, Lundquist College management faculty produced and published 21 research articles in the top-tier journals as defined by the Texas A&M University and the University of Georgia methodology. Those eight journals are the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, Personnel Psychology, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.

“Our management faculty are superb researchers and leaders in their fields, with scholarship that spans disciplinary boundaries and asks bold questions with societal implications, focusing in the areas of entrepreneurship, technology, sustainability, diversity, and work/life balance," said Anne Parmigiani, the Carolyn S. Chambers Professor of Management and head of the management department. “I am thrilled by this latest recognition of the transformative scholarship taking place at the college. It is also a wonderful reflection of the collaborative research culture we are building as we've welcomed several new professors to the department over the past few years."

Since 2015, the management department's 11 research faculty members have published 72 papers, with 42 of those papers appearing in the top 50 journals evaluated by The Financial Times for its business school research rankings. Management faculty research has also been cited 18,767 times, according to Google Scholar.
