Robinson Surges in B-School Rankings

ATLANTA –The faculty of Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business are among the world’s most productive business researchers, according to new rankings from the Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas).

In the annual rankings, Robinson jumped to No. 51 among the 100 most productive business schools worldwide (an advance of 12 spots) and to No. 45 among the 100 most productive business schools in North America (moving up nine spots).

UT Dallas compiles the rankings from a database of faculty research published in 24 major peer-reviewed journals. The index scoring system measures single and multiple authors and their university affiliations. Current-year standings are based on articles published from 2008 to 2012.

“The UT Dallas rankings are a reflection of the accomplishments of our faculty,” said Robinson College Dean H. Fenwick Huss. “Robinson is home to some of the world’s most respected scholars, many of whom have published extensively in these prestigious journals.”

In addition to Robinson’s overall high standing, the college is ranked in the top 50 for contributions to 11 of the 24 journals evaluated — including three top-10 rankings.
