Warrington’s Management Department ranks seventh in productivity

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Management Department at the Warrington College of Business Administration ranked seventh in a recent study of research productivity among major American and Canadian universities in top management journals.

The study, co-sponsored by the University of Florida and Texas A&M, recorded appearances by management departments and universities that were published in eight elite management journals—Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organization Science, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Personnel Psychology and Strategic Management Journal—from 2005 to 2009. Warrington appeared 51 times in those journals, the fifth-most among all public business schools.

UF appeared in the top 10 in productivity in every year of the study. Warrington tied for eighth in 2005, tied for sixth in 2006, tied for second in 2007, tied for fifth in 2008 and tied for sixth in 2009. UF was only one of two universities—Michigan State was the other—to rank in the top 10 all five years.
