Best Business and Management Universities

The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of top Business and Management universities is based on data collected from Microsoft Academic Graph on December 6th, 2021.

D-index only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline. A leading scientist is a scholar with a D-index of at least 30 in an examined discipline. Show more

Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index using data compiled from Microsoft Academic Graph, which is the most prominent and well-established bibliometric database of this type available to the scientific community.
