College of Business Once Again Ranks Among Top North American Business Schools for Research Activity

May 11, 2010 - The College of Business at UT Arlington has once again earned a ranking among the top 100 business schools in North America based on research contributions in 22 select academic journals. The ranking was determined by the number of research contributions published between 2005-2009. The study places UT Arlington ahead of business schools such as the E.J. Ourso College of Business Administration at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge, Clemson University College of Business and Behavioral Sciences, and The Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University.

"Faculty research activity is critically important to any business school," says College of Business Dean Daniel Himarios. "The high level of cutting-edge research our faculty produces is an indicator of academic quality. I am delighted the UT Arlington College of Business can be counted among the most research-productive schools in the nation."

According to the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the world's largest professional accreditation association for business programs, there are 1,792 business schools in North America. This ranking places the College of Business in the top six percent of North American business schools in research activity.

The Top 100 Business School Research Rankings is conducted by the School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. The 22 journals comprising the survey include the top journals in the fields of accounting, finance, international business, marketing, management, management science, information systems, and operations management.
