Neeley School of Business at TCU Releases 2nd Annual Rankings for Entrepreneurship Research Productivity

FORT WORTH, Texas (September 20, 2010) – Researchers at the Neeley School of Business at TCU announce the results of the second 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 135 schools for the second time, with a total of 17 research articles in the three publications.

Syracuse University was second with 10 articles, and two schools tied for third with seven articles each: the University of Minnesota and RSM Erasamus University in The Netherlands. For a complete list of schools ranked in order, see below.

“We are proud to produce these rankings and congratulate our colleagues for their research endeavors,” said O. Homer Erekson, John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business at TCU.

Dr. Keith Hmieleski, Assistant Professor of Management at the Neeley School of Business at TCU and the lead researcher for the rankings, cautioned that no one ranking tells the whole story. “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. He also explained that the rankings are not adjusted for faculty size.

The Neeley School of Business at TCU is nationally ranked and consistently recognized as a premier business school by Forbes, Fortune Small Business, The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, US News & World Report and The Princeton Review. 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.
