The superb work of Lundquist College faculty members is driving up our ranking for business school research production on the national stage.
The University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business jumped 10 places on the University of Texas at Dallas-run Top 100 Business School Research Rankings for North America and moved up 11 spots worldwide. The surge is even more remarkable given the college also jumped 10 places in the 2017 ranking, illustrating our ongoing emphasis on impactful research.
“This ranking reflects the efforts of the entire college and a decades long commitment to research excellence,” said Ryan Wilson, Richard W. Lindholm Professor in Taxation and the Lundquist College’s Director of Research and Doctoral Studies. “The Lundquist College has a tradition of thought leadership and collegiality that has helped assemble an outstanding group of faculty, and I expect this upward trend to continue in the future.”
The University of Oregon has consistently appeared on the prestigious list in recent years.
UT Dallas 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 52 published articles, Lundquist faculty members placed 59th among all business schools in the United States and Canada and 78th among business schools worldwide.
The UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings are a product of its Naveen Jindal School of Management which created and maintains a database to track publications in 24 leading business journals. The database contains titles and author affiliations of papers published in these journals since 1990. The information in the database is used to provide the top 100 business school rankings since 1990 based on the total contributions of faculty.
This ranking is particularly notable given the Lundquist College’s small size relative to many of the other schools on the list and the fact that the rankings are not scaled for size of faculty. The Lundquist College is the only Oregon business school to make the list.
“At the University of Oregon, we take pride in consistently producing high quality research that transforms the state, region, and society,” said Sarah E. Nutter, Edward Maletis Dean of the Lundquist College of Business. “Our inclusion on this distinguished list affirms the groundbreaking research our faculty members are achieving and most importantly, highlights the benefits our students receive from exposure to these world-class thought leaders—both in the classroom and as collaborators.”
