April 3, 2019

The Department of Management in the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, stands at 43rd nationally in the Texas A&M/University of Georgia Research Productivity ranking for 2018.

Anne Smith, head of the management department, says the ranking, which was released in March, affirms the department’s devotion to staying at the forefront of thought leadership in the field.

“The latest TAMUGA ranking demonstrates our department’s long-standing commitment to staying on the cutting edge of research in the discipline while providing students with a top-flight education,” says Smith, the King and Judy Rogers Professor in Business at Haslam.

Stephen L. Mangum, dean of the college and Stokely Foundation Leadership Chair, said the ranking showcases the breadth and productivity of the faculty.

“Our management faculty contribute both to the body of work regarding management and its practice as well as addressing best practices within the business world,” Mangum says. “This ranking is a result of their dedication and expertise.”

The TAMUGA rankings track productivity in eight top-tier journals in management, including: Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organization Science, Personnel Psychology, and Strategic Management Journal.

Haslam’s Department of Management is dedicated to providing high-quality education in the management discipline through a creative balance of academic, professional and extracurricular programs. Through mutually beneficial partnerships with alumni, industry and local, state and federal governments, the department also provides public service assistance and collaborative research and scholarship, which contribute to the nation’s knowledge base in the management discipline.
