Faculty Research and Achievements

The Jindal School of Management is led by an unmatched team of professors and educators. Our faculty research has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of International Business Studies, Management Science, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal, significantly contributing to the school’s rising rankings. The data speak for themselves.

We are very confident that no other PhD program, in its introduction, will show you the up-to-date, detailed data on the accomplishments of their faculty and students that we are going to show you below. Collecting and reporting such data requires a lot of research and time commitment. But since we are a research-oriented schoold, we believe it is important to undertake this kind of research about ourselves so that you can judge for yourself whether you want to join us.
