Sumit K. Kundu
Faculty members of the College of Business Administration continue to make significant contributions to Florida International University’s reputation as Miami’s public research university.
Researchers at Michigan State University identified Ingersoll-Rand Professor of International Business Sumit K. Kundu as one of the 89 most prolific researchers in international business between 1996 and 2005. The team examined five top journals—Journal of International Business Studies, Management International Review, Journal of World Business, International Marketing Review, and Journal of International Marketing—that included the work of 1900 authors. The study is currently under review by the Journal of International Business Studies, the premier journal in international business, for possible publication this year.
Also, the college has tied U.S. schools such as Columbia University, Indiana University, Northwestern University, The Ohio State University, Princeton University, Southern Methodist University, and Yale University as well as non-U.S. schools such as the London School of Economics and the University of Warwick in the sixth Interfaces’ rankings of universities for contributions to practice literature in the past seven years. These institutions ranked 34th in the listing.
“Interfaces is the practitioners’ journal of the Institute for Operations Research & Management Sciences (INFORMS), most of whose 12,000 members are managers, engineers, or analysts, generally with graduate degrees,” said Steve Zanakis, professor, decision sciences and information systems, two of whose articles were on the list. “Refereed articles in the journal must document substantial monetary savings or clear benefits/impacts on business or governmental organizations and society at large.”
