Seventeen professors from HEC Lausanne (UNIL) have scored highly in the BWL Ranking of the Forschungsmonitoring for their publications in leading academic journals, reflecting the excellence and strong academic impact of the research carried out in the School.
The BWL Ranking established by the Forschungsmonitoring examines the performance of academic publications in the management field, based on common international criteria such as SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) values. The SJR value measures the academic influence of a scientific journal, based on the number of citations it receives and the prestige of the journals in which it is cited. The Forschungsmonitoring ranks management researchers working or born in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The latest ranking is based on publications from 2016 to 2020 and forthcoming publications. Partial results are published in the German business news magazine WirtschaftWoche.
Several of the School’s professors are listed among the researchers selected for the ranking of authors (all countries combined, weighted based solely on publications in the best A and A+ ranked journals):
The “lifetime ranking”, which is based on all publications, according to the same weighting, includes 14 of the School’s professors:

Jean-Philippe Bonardi, Dean of HEC Lausanne and Professor in the Strategy Department, comments: “Excellence in research can hardly be captured in a ranking. That being said, I am very happy and proud to see that several of our professors feature very favourably in the BWL ranking in management. This is another indicator of the quality and impact on the economic and business world of the research conducted at HEC Lausanne”.
