The Naveen Jindal School of Management’s faculty has an excellent reputation based on members’ teaching, research and business expertise. As of fall 2014, 248 educators, including adjunct and visiting professors, work in the school.
Led by JSOM Dean and Caruth Chair of Management Dr. Hasan Pirkul, 22 of the faculty members have been appointed to UT Dallas named and endowed posts. An endowed chair or professorship is the highest academic award that the university can bestow on a faculty member, and it lasts as long as the university exists. Thus, it both honors the named holder of the appointment and serves as an enduring tribute to the donor who establishes it.
“Our goal has always been to be among the best business schools in the nation, and we’ve done that with the help of our distinguished faculty members, who are some of the brightest minds in the business world,” Dr. Pirkul has said.
One area in which the faculty distinguishes itself is research. Based on faculty publications in the top 24 journals spanning all areas of business over the last four years, the Jindal School ranks No. 16 in North America in research productivity and No. 17 globally, according to The UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings™ (2013). In 2013, Financial Times ranked the school at No. 18 in the world for faculty research productivity.
