Haslam’s supply chain program ranks 4th globally in publications

April 21, 2017

The Haslam College of Business’ supply chain program was ranked fourth in the world for publications in leading, empirically focused supply chain journals by the SCM Journal List for the second time.

Stephen L. Mangum, dean and Stokely Foundation Leadership Chair at Haslam, said the rankings reflect the college’s commitment to impactful research.

“Our supply chain program is a prime example of how academic experts can work with, learn from and inspire innovations to industry professionals,” Mangum said. “This ranking reflects our supply chain faculty members’ consistency in producing research that is being published in pivotal academic journals and read by executives in the country’s most successful companies. ”

Haslam shares the top five tier with Michigan State University, Arizona State University, The Ohio State University and University of Arkansas (listed by rank, with Arkansas in the fifth position). The global ranking is based on publications in empirically focused journals.

The SCM Journal List identifies eight journals that publish research across a broad spectrum of supply chain areas in both the analytical and empirical arenas. Each year’s ranking is based on the research published in these journals during the previous five years.

“When this ranking was established a little over two years ago, we finally felt that we had an accurate and reasonably objective assessment of our field’s research output,” said Chad Autry, head of the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management and the William J. Taylor Professor of Supply Chain Management at Haslam.

The SCM Journal List has been endorsed by faculty from 200 of the most prestigious business schools worldwide.
