The OSU Spears School of Business was one of the top schools in the nation for 2017 in aggregate publication rankings in the eight top-tier journals by management faculty in U.S. business schools.
Spears Business management faculty tied for 19th overall and was first among Big 12 schools in the Texas A&M/University of Georgia Rankings of Management Department Research Productivity for 2017. The rankings are based on the number of scholarly articles a business school’s faculty have published in eight top-tier, peer-reviewed journals.
With seven published articles, Spears Business faculty tied for 19th out of the 97 schools with at least two publications.
“At a strategic planning retreat in 2013, our faculty committed to the pursuit of increasing our research profile,” said Jim Pappas, head of the Department of Management. “With the support of Dean Ken Eastman and Vice Dean Ramesh Sharda, we have made great strides in producing cutting-edge research that is recognized nationally.
“We realize our long-term goal requires continuous support from many external and internal constituents; however, we also know it is possible to aim high and achieve excellence.”
In addition, the OSU faculty members tied for 40th overall among the 150 most productive groups with at least two publications for the last five years (2013 to 2017). Over those five years, their publications appeared in the Academy of Management Journal (five articles), the Academy of Management Review (one), the Journal of Applied Psychology (three), Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes (three), Organization Studies (one), Personnel Psychology (two) and the Strategic Management Journal (six).
