The Carlson School is host to the most productive management researchers in the country, according to a new report by Texas A&M University and the University of Florida. The Management Department Productivity Rankings analyzed faculty contributions to top-tier management journals from 161 universities across the United States and Canada in 2013: Carlson School faculty published 20 articles last year, and earned the top spot.
"We consistently do well in research rankings, but it's nice to see two of our historical areas of strength, strategy and organizational behavior, reaffirmed," says George John, Carlson School associate dean of faculty and research.
The University of Minnesota climbed seven places in the rankings compared to the previous year.
The University of Pennsylvania, Michigan State University, and the University of Michigan tied for second place in the rankings with 16 publications each, while Harvard University was ranked fifth with 14 publications.
The rankings counted contributions to the following management journals: Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organization Science, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Personnel Psychology, and the Strategic Management Journal.
