Lincoln (Neb.) - Feb. 26, 1999 - According to a study published in the December issue of the prestigious Academy of Management Journal, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln management department ranks among the top 52 in the nation.
Nebraska was listed among 31 departments listed alphabetically as having "middle status," along with Kansas, Missouri and Texas A&M of the Big 12, and other well-known programs such as Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oregon, Penn State, Purdue, Southern California, Virginia and Yale. Texas was the only Big 12 school listed among the 21 universities with "high status." Fifty-three schools were classified as "low status." Only 105 top universities out of hundreds met the study criteria.
"I think we received this ranking mainly because of some of publication of our faculty's research in the top journals," said Sang Lee, professor and chair of management. "Publication in those journals recognizes that a faculty is doing top-quality research and we really emphasize publication in the top-tier journals.
"This recognition will be great for us in terms of placing
and recruiting doctoral students and in recruitment of faculty.
And it will help us attract excellent undergraduates because
people pay attention to this kind of thing."
