Business Faculty Ranked Among Top Scientists in the World

Five of our faculty members – experts in the fields of Information Systems, Business and Management, and Operations Research – are named the “top two percent of scientists in the world” in a study led by John PA IOANNIDIS at Stanford University (PLOS Biology 2019, 2020). They are Chair Professors Yaping GONG, Albert HA, Jiatao LI, Kar Yan TAM (Dean of HKUST Business School), and James THONG.

The Stanford study used the Scopus database to create a list of over 100,000 top scientists in the world on the basis of standardized citation indicators. The ranking is based on a composite indicator for career-long impact consisting of: an individual’s scientific productivity and impact or h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, and citations to papers in different authorship positions. These scientists were organized into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields.

These career-long impacts achieved by our faculty attest to their international standing and HKUST Business School’s commitment to academic excellence.
