According to a report from the University of Texas, Dallas' Naveen Jindal School of Management, the Carlson School is No. 16 in research journal contributions among business schools worldwide. The rankings were based on the quantity of article citations by researchers across an array of disciplines in leading business journals published from 2009 to 2013. Since 2011, the Carlson School ranks third in the world behind Wharton and Harvard in research published in the six top strategy and management-specific journals.

"This represents the very best journals across a half dozen fields within business schools that are universally acknowledged as the cream of the crop," says George John, Carlson School associate dean of faculty and research. "The School is in very good company when it comes to research productivity."

The database tracks publications in 24 top business journals that contain titles and author affiliations of papers published since 1990. The current list, which covers the years from 2009 to 2013, shows that Carlson School faculty authored 193 articles. Last year, in which the list covered 2008 to 2012, the Carlson School was ranked at number 18 with 164 article citations.

The ranking evidences the scope and reach of research taking place across the School. Compared to institutions that ranked higher on the list, the Carlson School has a substantially smaller faculty, making their contributions to thought leadership in business doubly impressive.
