ISB tops Operations Management Research Rankings from India

Hyderabad: The Operations Management faculty at the Indian School of Business (ISB) has placed the School in a leading position in India. ‘The SCM Journal List’, a ranking of best management research universities, B-schools, and organisations, ranked ISB at #1 in India and amongst the top 100 globally during the 2015-20 period.


The SCM Journal List considers research papers related to Supply Chain Management published across globally recognised research journal publications, predominantly focusing on research papers on supply chain management in both analytical and empirical arenas. Recent data from the list placed ISB in the lead for the 2015-20 period for its number in the analytical publications across top management research journals.


The eight journals included in the SCM Journal List ranking include journals from the Financial Times and UT-Dallas lists, as well as journals from leading supply chain management professional associations: APICS (Journal of Operations Management), CSCMP (Journal of Business Logistics), Decision Sciences Institute (Decision Sciences Journal), and ISM (Journal of Supply Chain Management).


ISB’s research productivity in these five years stood among the global top 100 on the SCM Journal List (rank #64) among 700 research institutions across the world. The global rankings place ISB above all its Indian peers – business schools, universities and corporate research firms included– and make it the only Indian institution to make it among the global top 100, from India.


In the 2021 SCM Journal List (2015-20 period), ISB has ranked higher than several well-respected foreign universities from across Asia, Europe, and US. The 2021 SCM Journal List rankings can be found here:


Since its inception, ISB had always understood the value of producing world class research from India. Its mission is to emerge as a top research institution in the field of management and make a global impact. Interestingly, despite being the youngest business school from the country, the research productivity of ISB has earned it many global laurels and recognition. ISB was the first B -school from India to be ranked among the prestigious UT Dallas top 100 Business School Research Rankings in the year 2015 (for 2010-14, #97) and retains the top slot from the country (2014-17, #90). Earlier, in 2021, ISB was ranked #1 in India by The FT and The Economist rankings for business schools. ISB’s Marketing management faculty’s research efforts were just recently conferred the #1 ranking in Asia and #44 globally by the American Management Association (AMA) DocSIG research productivity rankings.
