Financial Times ranks Foster faculty 24th globally in research productivity

The Financial Times has ranked the University of Washington Foster School of Business faculty 24th in the world in research productivity.

For this per-capita ranking, the FT calculated the total number of articles by each school’s full-time faculty that were published in their disciplines’ top academic and practitioner journals between January 2011 and October 2013. This total number of publications was then weighted relative to the size of each school’s faculty.

The faculty research listing is a component of the most recent Financial Times Global MBA Ranking. In the 2014 edition, the Foster School jumped 20 places—the greatest leap (tied with Boston University) of any American school—to 58th in the world, 31st in the United States, and 14th among US public schools.

Foster’s significant ascent was fueled by strong job placement, alumni salary increases and career progress, as well as its elite record of research productivity.
