Two renowned, international rankings confirm WHU’s top position in supply management research
In the recently published SCM Journal List ranking WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management ranks 5th in a global comparison of universities producing empirical supply chain management (SCM) research. This is two places up from last year’s rank 7 for WHU. The annual SCM Journal List ranking is based on the schools’ number of publications in leading SCM journals within the past five years. The empirical list ranks a total of 434 institutions. WHU is the highest-ranked institution outside the United States.
The ranking can be accessed at: www.scmlist.com/home/university-rankings/empirical-report/.
The current study Publication Productivity in the Supply Chain Management Discipline: 2014 – 2016, the latest edition of an established series of analyses across five decades of institutional research productivity, placed WHU in the top 10 of SCM research institutions globally.
Analyses in this series are conducted at regular intervals by changing international teams of SCM researchers. An established set of methods, which has been used in all previous editions of this series, guarantees objectivity and comparability of the results. The latest study was conducted by Michael Maloni (Kennesaw State University) and Craig Carter (Arizona State University).
