July 28, 2017

Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business secured a top 9 spot in the management category of the influential Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).

Also known as the Shanghai Ranking, the ARWU is considered one of the most prestigious annual rankings of the world’s research universities.

“It’s truly an honor to join the ranks of the top 10 management programs in the world. It reinforces the quality of our individual programs on a global scale,” said Amy Hillman, dean of the W. P. Carey School. “The rankings also reflect the hard work of our faculty, whose research helps to elevate the programs and the quality of education we’re providing.”

The W. P. Carey School of Business also earned a top 25 spot in economics and ranks 30th in the world for business administration, the best rankings for any Arizona school.

The latest ARWU Global Ranking of Academic Subjects involved a survey of more than 500 top universities worldwide in 52 subject areas. Each subject was evaluated on five different indicators: the number of papers authored by an institution in an academic subject, the number of staff who have won significant awards, the percentage of internationally-collaborated papers, the number of papers published in top journals and the average impact of papers produced by an institution. 

Other recent high rankings for the W. P. Carey School of Business, according to U.S. News and World Report:

  • No. 25 full-time MBA program in the nation
  • No. 5 online MBA program
  • No. 3 supply chain and logistics, graduate program
  • No. 5 supply chain and logistics, undergraduate program
  • No. 27 best undergraduate business program
