Whitman School Ranked in #3 in 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Research Productivity Rankings

The Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises (EEE) department at Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management was recently ranked #3 in the 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Research Productivity Rankings, compiled by TCU’s Neeley School of Business. This is the second time in as many years that the entrepreneurship faculty have been recognized for research impact; it was ranked among the top 10 in a 2017 study of entrepreneurship research impact, as well.

The 2019 rankings, which included 497 schools, are based on the number of publications in the Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice and Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal during the five-year period from 2014 to 2018. These are the top three journals in the field of Entrepreneurship and included on the Financial Times 50 list of leading business journals.

“This ranking represents more evidence of the impact the EEE department is making on the field of entrepreneurship,” said Michel Benaroch, associate dean for research and Ph.D. programs at the Whitman School. “Our faculty continue to lead the way domestically and globally through their entrepreneurship research.”

The EEE department is poised to make an even greater mark on the field of entrepreneurship as it hires more research faculty and pumps additional resources into its research centers and institutes, including the newly established Institute for an Entrepreneurship Society.

The Whitman School’s EEE department recently published its year-in-review, which includes its research accomplishments from the previous year. Dozens of publications are highlighted, including many co-authored by doctoral students. The faculty also hold prominent leadership and editorial roles in other top entrepreneurship and management journals.
