Faculty research in entrepreneurship ranked highly for second year


For the second year in a row, research conducted in areas related to entrepreneurship and published by faculty in the Department of Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises in the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University has been ranked number two in the world in a study conducted by the M. J. Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University. One-hundred and fifty-nine schools were included in this year’s Entrepreneurship Research Productivity World Rankings.

The study analyzed entrepreneurship research productivity of universities worldwide and measured universities that published in the three top entrepreneurship journals during the previous year. The top three journals are Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Business Venturing and Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice.

“Inclusion on this list recognizes our faculty’s collective efforts in publishing their research in the most prestigious entrepreneurship journals,” says George Burman, professor and chair of entrepreneurship and dean emeritus of the Whitman School. “We are pleased to be acknowledged, for a second year, as the second most productive group of entrepreneurship research scholars in the world. We look forward to enhancing Whitman’s entrepreneurial research reputation for years to come.”
