Eleven Questrom Faculty Members Ranked in Top 2% of Scientists Worldwide According to Stanford University Analysis

The Questrom School of Business congratulates faculty members Chrysanthos “Chris” Dellarocas, N. Venkatraman, Paul Carlile, Marshall Van Alstyne, Avi Seidmann, Douglas “Tim” Hall, William Kahn, Andrew King, Steven Kou, and Dean Susan Fournier on their recent rankings within the top 2% of scientists within their fields. In each instance this recognition was based on how often their works were cited by peers and fellow authorities. The eleven were singled out in a study conducted by Stanford University, which measured overall career impact within fields of expertise via the metric of citations in peer-reviewed academic journals and studies. The survey was led by a team of experts headed by Stanford Professor John Ionnidis.

“This is a remarkable achievement for Susan, Chris, Iain, Venkat, Paul, Marshall, Avi, Tim, Bill, Andrew, and Steven,” said Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer of Boston University. “Being recognized as among the most cited researchers speaks not only to the quality of work produced at Questrom but also its importance to the world of business overall.”

The recognition of the work of these eleven Questrom faculty members is an affirmation of the Questrom School of Business’ focus on “research with impact” and mission to integrate research with teaching and service to advance business practice and education. Recently, the school launched Insights@Questrom, a digital hub featuring research and thought leadership produced by faculty, administrators, and alumni that brings theory to life and applies it to contemporary challenges facing leaders in business and higher education.

“At Questrom, we task our professors with conducting research with real-world results, then sharing that knowledge with students as it’s being formulated,” said Marcel Rindisbacher, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty & Research. “These rankings are a testament to the success of this approach in identifying solutions that are relied upon by other experts and business leaders around the world.”
