Record Number of Poole Faculty Serve as Editors for Financial Times Top 50 Journals

A number of Poole College of Management faculty members across departments have been appointed to serve as editors, associate editors and on the editorial boards for the Financial Times top 50 academic journals. The Financial Times (FT) 50 represents the top academic business journals in the world that publish some of the most impactful, and sometimes Nobel prize winning, research that has changed the way that we view business and economics. 

For the first time, faculty members from the Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship are serving as an associate editor of each of the three FT 50 entrepreneurship journals. 

“To serve on the editorial board of an FT 50 journal means that the faculty member is at the forefront of business research and directly impacts the direction of future research,” said Richard Warr, associate dean for faculty and research. “Being asked to serve on the editorial board is also an indication from the academic profession of the skill and reputation of the faculty member.”

“We’re incredibly proud of all our faculty who hold these very prestigious appointments, they show how Poole is embodying Think and Do at the very highest level.”
