Our research-productive faculty have moved the Lundquist College of Business up 10 places in the University of Texas at Dallas’s 2017 Top 100 Business School Research Rankings. These rankings are based on the amount of scholarly articles a business school’s faculty have published in 24 peer-reviewed journals over the course of a five-year period. With 44 published articles, Lundquist faculty members placed 69th among all business schools in the United States and Canada and 89th among business schools worldwide.
“The excellence of our faculty and the positive environment of fellowship here at the college are what make it such a productive place for research,” said Sarah E. Nutter, Edward Maletis Dean of the Lundquist College of Business. “Being listed in the top 100 out of thousands of business schools in North America, let alone the world, puts us in elite company. It is both a goal of the University of Oregon and the Lundquist College of Business to advance faculty research, and this ranking is a reflection of our strategic initiative in this area. We look forward to continuing to move up the rankings.”
The Lundquist College of Business was one of six business schools that moved up 10 or more places in the 2017 rankings. The ranking’s methodology favors single-authored papers and institutions with a larger number of faculty members. If a paper is single authored, the school of affiliation is credited with a score of 1. If there are multiple authors from different schools, each school gets a score of p/n, where p is the number of authors from the same school and there are a total of n authors on the article. If an author lists multiple affiliations, each of the schools that author is affiliated with gets a corresponding scaled score. For example, if one of the n authors lists m affiliations, each school that author is affiliated with gets a score of 1/nm.
Many of the Lundquist College’s papers were multi-authored, and the Lundquist College has fewer faculty members than the majority of intuitions in the top 100 of UT Dallas’s rankings.
