Study of Annual Research Productivity in Indian Top Business Schools


  • Aithal, Sreeramana


Institutional Ranking in higher educational institutions became common practice and business schools are highly benefitted by announced ranks based on various ranking criterions. The ranking is usually announced based on the criterions like pedagogy, placement salary, research output, faculty-student ratio, international linkage, management of technology, infrastructural facilities etc. Recently, we have developed a model of calculating research productivity of higher educational institution based on calculating institutional research index and weighted research index. The institutional research productivity is calculated using a metric model called ABC model which consists of four institutional parameters identified as number of Articles published in peer reviewed journals (A), number of Books published (B), number of Case studies and/or Book Chapters (C) published, and the number of full-time Faculty members (F) in that higher education institution during a given time of observation. In this paper, we have used ABC model of institutional research productivity to calculate research productivity of some of the Indian top business schools. The publication data is collected from the institutional website for the year 2015. The research productivity of these institutions are determined and compared. Based on research productivity index, the Business Schools are re-ranked.
