Business schools strive to meet two goals: knowledge exploration through research and knowledge exploitation through instruction. Our results indicate that research performance (pages published in leading journals) and M.B.A. (master of business administration) program performance (popular business press rankings) are different. Research performance was improved by the number of faculty, the proportion of full professors, the proportion of assistant professors, and editorships. M.B.A. program performance was improved by the budget per faculty member and the proportion of full professors.

Executive Overview Many management teams may know what they should do to improve their performance dramatically—not five or ten percent but twenty-five, fifty or one hundred percent. However, like many individuals who know they should stop smoking, see a physician, start exercising, or begin dieting, the management team ignores, avoids, delays or simply acts contrary to what they already know they should do. Unfortunately, this contradiction appears to be more prevalent and common than anyone wo...

A study of inputs (students and new faculty) and outputs (MBA and Ph.D. graduates) of 20 business schools found that status perceived by certain stakeholder groups (constituencies) affects the mobility of individuals between schools and limits the competition among schools for student inputs and for output placement.The study examined schools that differed in status perceived by three constituencies: the national business community, the academic community, and MBA students. The results indicate ...

This study provides comprehensive publications performance data over a twenty-five-year period for finance doctorates. These data indicate that publishing one article per year in any finance journal (or finance, accounting, economics, or business journal) over any prolonged period of time is a truly remarkable feat, met by only 5 percent of the graduates. Tenure screens combining various quantity and quality requirements are examined to assess their ability to predict future publication producti...

By the 19805, many executives were convinced that traditional measures of financial performance didn't let them manage effectively and wanted to replace them with operational measures. Arguing that executives should trackboth financial and operational metrics, Robert Kaplan and David Norton suggested four sets of parameters. First, how do customers see your company? Find out by measuring lead times, quality, performance and service, and costs. Second, what must your company excel at? Determine t...

The article deals with a study demonstrating the effects of separately analyzing management journals whose primary audience is management practitioners and those whose primary audience is academics. A discussion is presented about dimensions that underlie journal rankings and the research productivity in management journals. The relationship between publication in journals and the productivity of institutional research is examined. The authors report correlations among productivity measures of v...

This study uses the weightings of accounting journal quality derived by Howard and Nikolai (HN, 1983) to produce a ranked list of the publishing contribution of the twenty-five top non-U.S. institutions for the ten-year period 1977–86. A data base was created of all the contributions by non-U.S. academics to the ten academic accounting and finance journals ranked highest in the HN study. The results of the analyses of this data base indicate: (a) the contribution of non-U.S. countries to the acc...

Four sets of multiple constituency models of organizational effectiveness, which employ relativistic, power, social justice, and evolutionary perspectives, are reviewed. Comparison of these perspectives shows that the construct of organizational effectiveness is both value-based and time-specific. The implications of these findings are examined in the form of potential directions for research on organizational effectiveness.

Examines how external constraints affect organizations and how to design and manage organizations under such constraints. Taking a resource dependence perspective on organizations, the book discusses basic components of control, including the concentration and availability of resources, the role of managers, interdependence among organizations, the environment, and organizational structure. Two case studies, one on Israeli managers and one on American defense contractors, exemplify how governmen...

Knowledge production and scientific discourse are observable in published scholarly texts. Citations capture knowledge consumption and impact. Drawing from the sociology of science, our theoretical framework posits scientific communities as thought collectives with distinctive thought styles that embed a hidden topic structure and rhetorical signals into a journal’s published articles. We hypothesize and uncover how an article’s topic attributes (structure, focus, and newness) and rhetorical att...

AbstractThis paper presents a longitudinal classification of the impact that universities have on strategy research from three decades of publications, between 1987 and 2016, by using bibliometric techniques and distance-based analysis of networks applied at the level of universities. Using the WoS database, this study proposes a general overview of three decades of strategic management research. Using these techniques we (i) categorize the last 30 years of academic production of research instit...

Abstract Substantial research has examined inclusion fairness, which is whether a fair distribution of available publication space exists in quality journals across the functional disciplines of business. Historically, researchers have assessed inclusion fairness using the top two to four journals in each discipline. This study examines inclusion fairness using the Australian Business Deans Council list, which is a much more inclusive sample of quality journals. Using hand-collected data from 11...

Management studies both globally and in South Africa is a young academic discipline. Despite this, it is a vibrant and multi-disciplinary field of scholarship. Management studies in South Africa mirrors the country’s political trajectory, and its development echoes apartheid segregationist policies. The discipline is complicit in supporting the apartheid workplace regimes. Post-apartheid South Africa allows for democratic access to university education for all South Africans. The democratic stat...

A review of the literature on organizational rankings across management, sociology, education, and law reveals three perspectives on these complex evaluations—rankings are seen as a form of information intermediation, as comparative orderings, or as a means for surveillance and control. The information intermediation perspective views rankings as information products that address information asymmetries between the ranked organizations and their stakeholders; the comparative orderings perspectiv...

Abstract Assessing the scholarly impact of academic institutions has become increasingly important. The achievements of editorial board members can create benchmarks for research excellence and can be used to evaluate both individual and institutional performance. This paper proposes a new method based on journal editor data for assessing an institution’s scholarly impact. In this paper, a journal editorship index (JEI) that simultaneously accounts for the journal rating (JR), editor title (ET),...

Abstract How do independent innovations impact firm performance? Based upon exploratory learning perspective, we argue that independent innovations will exhibit a double-edged sword effect on firm performance over time. Further, we view cooperation with foreign partners as complementary assets, and examine the dynamical moderating effect of such complementary assets on the relationship between independent innovations and firm performance. By analyzing a sample of Chinese firms, we find that inde...

Abstract The number of innovation studies with a management perspective has grown considerably over the last 25 years. This study identified the universities that are most productive and influential in innovation research. The leading innovation research journals were also studied individually to identify the most productive universities for each journal. Data from the Web of Science were analyzed. Studies that were published between 1989 and 2013 were filtered first by the keyword “innovation” ...

The growth of emerging market multinational enterprises (EM MNEs) has enriched existing international business theories but conveyed also new puzzles and questions for these theories and perspectives. To synthesize what we know and what we do not concerning international expansion of EM MNEs, we use the qualitative content analysis method, systematically reviewing 166 articles from 11 leading IB and management journals published during the period of 1990–2014. Our review examines five major area...
