Dean's Column

Nov 01, 2012


The research program at the Smith School of Business is excellent across many different fields. This issue of Research@Smith deals with topics as disparate as healthcare management, capital controls and enhancing service productivity. While there may not seem to be a theme in content, what is true across these pieces is the level of rigorous research and analysis coupled with close attention to an important issue affecting an industrial sector today.

The Smith School faculty has always been ranked in the top-10 in research byFinancial Times (#8 in 2012), Business Week (#2 in 2010) and the UT-Dallas productivity ranking (better than #10 in each and every field!) What is even more impressive about the faculty is that they are all working on important global issues such as the financial crisis, healthcare cost and management, sustainability, and cyber security.

Our faculty frequently appear as experts in the media as well. In just the last two months Smith professors have been quoted in outlets such as CNN, CNBC, and ABC News, as well as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, CNN Money/Fortune, and many more.

They are also available to leaders in the business community, whether through formal consulting projects, thought leadership events around the region or research projects with our Centers of Excellence. If you are interested in learning more about partnership opportunities, please contact Greg Hanifee, our assistant dean of executive programs, for more information.
