SMU has achieved a significant rise in the latest UT Dallas (UTD) Top 100 Business School Research Rankings, based on the research contributions for the period 2012-2016.

Worldwide, SMU is currently ranked 40th, up from 49th in the previous year.  The latest ranking places SMU ahead of Yale University - School of Management (46th), Boston University - Questrom School of Business (50th), Bocconi University - SDA School of Management (59th), University of Cambridge - Judge Business School (69th).

In Asia, SMU is ranked third, behind Hong Kong University of Science and Technology - Business School (26th worldwide) and City University of Hong Kong - College of Business (28th worldwide).

The prestigious UTD research rankings, one of the key barometers of top faculty research, compiles a database that ranks various business schools by their research output in 24 top scientific and academic journals, including Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Finance, Journal of Marketing and Strategic Management Journal.

On the high standing achieved, Professor Gerard George, Dean of SMU Lee Kong Chian School of Business, said, “The UT Dallas Research Rankings, undoubtedly the gold standard in business research rankings, informs the strength and productivity of a business school’s research in top business journals.  Despite SMU’s relatively small faculty size, we are placed 3rd position in Asia and 1st in Singapore – this is an outstanding achievement, and is testimony to our strong commitment towards research excellence.  I would like to congratulate our faculty members for their collective efforts and remarkable success.”
