Become a stronger leader and strategist who can help your business seize growth opportunities — locally, across Africa, and beyond.

With 54 independent countries, Africa faces a distinct set of social, economic, and political conditions that create unique business challenges — along with exciting opportunities. To achieve their considerable potential, Africa’s businesses need executives who can design and execute effective strategies for growth within and beyond the continent. These leaders must also excel at creating innovative offerings, nurturing high-performance teams and organizations, and navigating rapid change in Africa’s dynamic markets.

To build these exceptional leaders, Harvard Business School Executive Education is launching a new program, the Senior Executive Program — ​Africa, in partnership with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) of Pretoria University in South Africa. Designed to strengthen your leadership skills and build your insight into local, regional, and global markets, the program explores the proven approaches of successful leaders in Africa and around the globe, preparing you to compete effectively, seize the region’s many growth opportunities, and sustain success for your firm.

Who should attend?

The Senior Executive Program — Africa is designed for experienced senior executives in African companies from any industry. Candidates should have significant responsibility for strategic decision making, have at least 15 years of work experience, and represent growth-oriented organizations. Participants might include CEOs, CFOs, business line heads, and other senior members of a company’s executive team, as well as directors general of government agencies.

How you will benefit

LBS at Harvard Business School

LBS Faculty Members Participate at the MOC Faculty Meeting Under the Auspices of Harvard University Professor Michael E. Porter

Professor Michael E. Porter, one of the world’s leading business scholars, welcomed LBS as a ‘rookie’ to the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) affiliate network. The MOC network includes more than 100 major business schools from 65 countries across the globe. Based at Professor Porter’s Institute of Strategy Competitiveness at Harvard Business School, the network promotes scholarship, research and capacity building on some of the key concepts of Michael Porter’s groundbreaking scholarship: strategy, competitiveness of firms and nations, economic prosperity, and the significance of clusters.

LBS master students will see immediate benefit from the school’s participation in the MOC network. Every IML and BFC student will explore the impactful ideas of MOC, in courses taught by experienced MOC scholars and LBS faculty members Professor Pablo Collazzo and Professor Christopher Kummer. These intense courses are designed on the highly engaging case teaching method developed at Harvard Business School.

LBS furthermore envisages to set up an Institute for Competitiveness on the school’s premises to bring together international experts and local decision-makers from the business and public sector.

In December 2014 LBS faculty members as well as Head of International Relations Professor Elisabeth Kübler take part in the annual MOC faculty meeting at Harvard Business School, Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting encompasses inspiring lectures by Professor Porter and global leaders who put the idea of competitiveness into business and policy practice.

The UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings – Naveen Jindal School of Management – The University of Texas at Dallas #biz #loans

#business school rankings


Research Rankings Overview

The UT Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management has created a database to track publications in 24 leading business journals. The database contains titles and author affiliations of papers published in these journals since 1990. The information in the database is used to provide the top 100 business school rankings since 1990 based on the total contributions of faculty.

Additionally, the database can also be searched by:

  • Any journal or combination of journals between the time period 1990 to date to get a ranking of schools
  • School name to see a list of publications by a school for any combination of journals and time period between 1990 to date
  • Author name to see a list of publications by an author for any combination of journals and time period between 1990 to date
  • Key phrase in article name to see a list of publications containing that phrase for any combination of journals and time period between 1990 to date

The Jindal School of Management maintains and keeps this website current to provide timely data on research productivity in leading research journals across major disciplines in business schools. The school has worked hard to ensure data integrity, but as with any project of this type where the affiliation data is not always clear, some errors may exist. If you spot an error, please send us the corrections at Top 100 Admin.

List of Journals

The Accounting Review

Journal of Accounting and Economics

Strategic Management Journal


UT Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management provides a tool to study research contributions based on publications in 24 leading journals in major business disciplines. The database contains author and affiliation information on all papers published in these journals since 1990. Authors affiliations are recorded at the time of the paper publication.

A single-authored paper results in the school of affiliation being credited with a score of 1. If there are multiple authors from different schools, each school gets a score of p/n, where p is the number of authors from the same school and there are a total of n authors on the article. If an author lists multiple affiliations, each of the schools that author is affiliated with gets a corresponding scaled score. For example, if one of the n authors lists m affiliations, each school that author is affiliated with gets a score of 1/nm.

The database can be searched by any period between 1990 to the current year for any combination of journals, resulting in aggregated scores for schools. This provides a clear picture of contributions from each school for the selected journals and time period. One can also search the database by school names, author names and key phrases in the title.

The Jindal School of Management also provides a ranking of the top 100 schools in North America and worldwide based on publications in all 24 journals for the last five-year time period. The school also provides links to prior rankings starting with the period 2000-2004.


Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information, the nature and diversity in which author affiliation information is provided in the journals sometimes make it hard to categorize and report the information accurately. UT Dallas Jindal School of Management has attempted to verify information using the web when possible.

While searching for articles, author names are provided in the search results. They are not listed in the sequence specified in the published paper. Also note that when information on authors is provided, if the same author is listed twice, it indicates that the author has listed multiple affiliations.

If you believe there is an error in the information provided, please send specific information to the administrator.

The Naveen Jindal School of Management appreciates your input to this ongoing research effort.

University of Pennsylvania


Founded in 1881, Wharton is the oldest U.S. business school and second-largest behind Harvard. Wharton’s faculty is the biggest in the country, and about a quarter of its 517 part-time and full-time faculty members come from abroad. Students at Wharton may choose from 18 majors and over 200 electives. Wharton offers dual-degree programs with seven other schools at Penn, plus joint programs with Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies and Harvard’s Kennedy School. Redesigned in 2012, the revamped curriculum allows students greater flexibility in determining the content and timing of meeting core requirements. It also introduced leadership coaching and personalized website for each student to hold feedback from coaching sessions. More »

What Alumni Are Saying
  • Best two years of my life. I could never have transitioned into my current career without the academics, career support, and network of Wharton.
  • Wharton enabled me to make the jump from engineering to Venture Capital – tough to do, but I am very happy with the way it turned out, and I found the MBA experience at Wharton to be truly transformative.
  • Best money I’ve ever spent! The rewards in education, jobs, networking, and global exposure just keep coming year after year.
  • Wharton has an unparalleled and valuable alumni network in Latin America, particularly Brazil. Its depth and breadth of curriculum (e.g. finance, accounting, operations, public speaking, leadership), as well as network, made me a better private equity professional.
