Moore School supply chain research ranked in top 10 by SCM Journal List

June 8, 2016

The Darla Moore School of Business was recently ranked among the top 10 business schools worldwide in empirically focused supply chain management research by the SCM Journal List.

The SCM Journal List is an annual ranking of universities’ supply chain management research output based on published articles in leading supply chain management journals over the previous five years. The empirically focused journal rankings are based on publications in Decision Sciences, Journal of Business Logistics, Journal of Operations Management and Journal of Supply Chain Management. 

A key strength of the global supply chain and operations management program at the Moore School, according to Manoj Malhotra, chair in the Department of Management Science, is that faculty make even high-level research accessible and relevant to both graduate and undergraduate students.

“The Moore School is widely recognized as one of the elite institutions that conducts world-class empirical research in operations and supply chain management,” he said. “As well as publishing in and serving on the editorial boards of top-ranked academic supply chain and operations management journals, faculty members are extensively cited and play an important role in shaping the content of several knowledge areas within the field. To enrich the education of our students, our faculty also bring those research insights into the classroom." 

Empirical publications report the results of surveys or studies, and thus are composed solely of evidence-based research. Few publications fit into one category of research, so the journals on the SCM Journal List will be re-evaluated every five years starting in 2020 to ensure rankings are as accurate as possible. 

The Moore School’s global supply chain and operations management program is currently ranked No. 12 nationally at both undergraduate and graduate levels by Gartner Inc.
