NEELEY SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AT TCU RELEASES 3rd ANNUAL RANKINGS FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP RESEARCH PRODUCTIVITY

Researchers at the Neeley School of Business at TCU announce the results of the third annual World Rankings for Entrepreneurship Research Productivity based on publications by faculty in the top three scholarly journals in entrepreneurship: Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Business Venturing, and Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice. Indiana University leads the list of 159 schools for the third time, with a total of nine research articles in the three publications.

Syracuse University was second with six articles. Colorado State University and University of Virginia tied for third with five articles each. Texas Christian University tied for fourth with four articles, along with Imperial College Business School, Northwestern University, University of Connecticut and University of North Carolina. See the complete list below.

These data are not adjusted for faculty size. All counts are made at the university level; thus, differentiations are not made between departments or other units. Only one affiliation per article is counted; therefore, an article by two or more authors from the same university is counted only once.

Dr. Keith Hmieleski, Assistant Professor of Management at the Neeley School of Business at TCU and the lead researcher for the rankings, said: “While praiseworthy, the number of entrepreneurship journal articles produced by universities is only one indicator of the productivity or quality of an entrepreneurship program,” he said.

The Neeley School of Business at TCU (www.neeley.tcu.edu) is nationally ranked and recognized as a premier business school by Fortune Small Business (Top 25 for Entrepreneurs), Bloomberg Businessweek (#29 Best Undergraduate) US News & World Report (#18 Best Undergraduate Entrepreneurship), Parade (College A-List) and The Princeton Review (Best 301 Business Schools 2010). The Neeley School is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the highest standard of accreditation for business schools internationally.
