The school was also ranked 10th for the research pro­duced by fac­ul­ty and 15th for its PhD pro­gram.

“There is as always lots of room for improve­ment, but I am pleased with our progress towards being rec­og­nized as one of the world’s top tier busi­ness schools,” said Dean Roger Mar­tin. “On the research front, we are par­tic­u­lar­ly pleased to have cracked the top 10 over­all. I think that is unde­ni­able evi­dence that we have a world-class fac­ul­ty. Sec­ond, our progress has been noth­ing short of spec­tac­u­lar. Ten years ago, we ranked 58th in research. Con­grat­u­la­tions to our fac­ul­ty mem­bers for their research suc­cess and to Vice-Dean Peter Pauly and Asso­ciate Dean Joel Baum for their lead­er­ship in build­ing our fac­ul­ty.”
