The Carroll School of Management now ranks 13th in the world for faculty research and productivity, according to a definitive annual survey released earlier this year by the Financial Times.

The 2018 ranking is four notches above where the Carroll School was placed just a year ago, and no fewer than 41 steps above its research ranking a decade ago.  The FT survey is an empirically based assessment of research by management faculties, measuring how much they publish and in what journals.

“We’ve worked hard to build a research culture that includes numerous interdisciplinary seminars, ample resources to support our faculty imagination, and detailed measures to track and strengthen faculty performance,” said Andy Boynton, the Carroll School’s John and Linda Powers Family  Dean. “I think all of that is paying off.”

At the same time, the dean said the School is ever-mindful of the need for outstanding and constantly improved teaching. He cited a number of innovations, including unparalleled teaching measures and reporting mechanisms for faculty, as well as regular seminars featuring national experts on the teaching craft.

“We’re emphatically committed to both teaching and research excellence. Honestly, I don’t know of any business school in the world that brings together both qualities as clearly as we do.”
