School of Entrepreneurship research ranks high internationally

Thursday, March 28, 2019

The OSU School of Entrepreneurship ranks fourth among nearly 500 international universities for research productivity.

The Oklahoma State University School of Entrepreneurship is ranked fourth among nearly 500 programs from around the world for research productivity for the past five years. The ranking lists university entrepreneurship programs by their ability to successfully publish research in the discipline’s top journals.

The Entrepreneurship program at the Spears School of Business tied for fourth place with the University of Alberta for 16 research articles published in three top-tier entrepreneurship journals as tallied by the Neeley Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Texas Christian University from 2014 to 2018.

“Entrepreneurship research is extremely important,” said Dr. Bruce Barringer, professor and N. Malone Mitchell, Jr. Chair and Student Ventures Chair and head of the OSU School of Entrepreneurship. “It informs how we teach, what goes into our textbooks and how entrepreneurs tackle real-life challenges.”

OSU finished behind top-ranked Indiana University, Imperial College of London and Syracuse University in the top-5 worldwide in the listing that counts the number of articles published in Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, the Journal of Business Venturing and Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice. According to TCU’s Neeley School of Business, the rankings aren’t adjusted for university size or number of research faculty. The remaining universities in the top 10 included HEC Montreal, York University, Mississippi State University, Northeastern University and the University of Oklahoma.

“I’m extremely proud that the School of Entrepreneurship at Oklahoma State is contributing at the level it is, Barringer said. It’s a testament to the dedication of our faculty to scholarly research.”
