Aalto University ranking improved in the SCM Journal List ranking

Aalto University ranked the 30th best university worldwide in the recent SCM Journal List ranking in operations and supply chain management.

Based on our research output in top-tier journals in the key areas of Industrial Engineering and Management, the ranking of Aalto University rose to the 30th place worldwide (Aalto was 44th in 2017) in empirical research, and to the 126th place in the world in analytically-focused research (144th in 2017).
 

Empirically focused top journals

The SCM Journal List ranking of empirical research is based on output in journals that are primarily empirically-focused (including Decision Sciences Journal, Journal of Business Logistics, Journal of Operations Management, and Journal of Supply Chain Management). The ranking of analytical research is based on output in journals that are primarily analytically-focused (including Management Science, Manufacturing and Service Operations Management, Operations Research, and Production and Operations Management).

Several departments at Aalto University have contributed to this area, including the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management, Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis and the Department of Information and Service Economy.
