Parker College of Business logistics department moves up in world ranking
The Department of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) in the Parker College of Business has moved up in its world ranking to No. 14 by SCM Journal List™. The Department was ranked No. 15 in 2018.
The SCM Journal List™ annual ranking of universities’ supply chain management research output is based on leading supply chain management journals. The research is primarily empirically focused and has been published in the last five years.
“We have program driven approaches to research in the Department of LSCM,” said Jerry Burke, Ph.D., professor and department chair. “The journals represented on the SCM Journal List™ are widely regarded as premier outlets for intellectual contributions. We aim for these journals to enhance the reputation of our strong undergraduate degree program as well as our Ph.D. program.
“It means a lot to our programs to attract and retain faculty with keen interests in student success along with world-class research reputations,” Burke added. “While our team may not get the exposure of a sports team with a top 20 ranking, we take great pride in our intentional and continued success through academic pursuits.”
The SCM Journal List™ ranking uses output from top-tier journals which publish research across a broad spectrum of areas across the supply chain, in both the analytical and empirical arenas. Georgia Southern has been ranked in the top 25 of the empirical list for four straight years with this year’s ranking of 14th being the best ranking to date.
