Washington State University’s Carson College of Business was recently named one of the top contributors to entrepreneurship research in rankings released by the TCU Neely Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

WSU is ranked No. 18 in the world out of 497 schools, based on research articles published in the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Business Venturing and Entrepreneurship, and Theory and Practice. These are the top three journals in entrepreneurship research and appear in the top 50 journals the Financial Times uses to rank business school research.

“The Carson College has been steadily building research strength in entrepreneurship. This recognition shows the payoff from this focused approach,” said Deborah Compeau, senior associate dean of faculty and research. “We are extremely proud of our entrepreneurship scholars, many of whom are pre‑tenure, and value their contributions.”

The 2019 TCU world rankings track research publications in premier entrepreneurship journals for the past five years (2014–2018). Inclusion in the rankings reflects the commitment of Carson College entrepreneurship research faculty to contribute rigorous and influential research to their disciplines, as well as supports WSU’s Drive to 25 initiative to increase the quality and quantity of research publications.
