The 2018 French Research in Management Ranking

KEDGE maintains its first place among French management schools with 100 articles published in one year

In the 2018 Research in Management ranking issued by L’Etudiant, the leading French magazine covering student orientation, KEDGE Business School is France’s best school for the second year running, having published 100 academic articles in one year, well ahead of the second-placed school, which produced only 74 articles.

For the category 1* and 1 publications, KEDGE is 4th with 12 articles, behind ESSEC, EM Lyon and HEC. For the category 2 publications, KEDGE is 1st with 27 articles
For the category 3 publications, KEDGE is 1st with 30 articles
For the category 4 publications, KEDGE is 2nd with 31 articles
