Top 10 Ranking for WHU's SCM Group

The 2020 SCM Journal List ranking confirms WHU’s top position in supply chain management research.

In the recently published SCM Journal ListTM ranking, WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management ranks 6th in a global comparison of universities producing empirical supply chain management (SCM) research. This makes WHU once more the highest-ranked SCM research institution from outside the United States, for the sixth year in a row.

The annual University Rankings are based on publications during the prior five years in empirically-focused journals, in this case the year range 2015-2019. As such, the annual SCM Journal ListTM is the only ranking of supply chain management programs that ranks programs based on actual research output in top-tier SCM and OM journals.

The SCM Journal ListTM is governed by the SCM Congress, which is composed of scholars from many of the leading supply chain management universities throughout the world and which reviews the journals encompassed within the List every four years.
