Performance of higher educational institutions can be measured using different criteria like student pass percentage, the annual research output, student placement result, foreign exposure, quality education etc. In this paper, we have used a recently developed model of measuring research productivity for higher educational institutions based on calculating institutional research index and weighted research index. The institutional research productivity is calculated using a metric which consists of three institutional variables and one parameter. The three variables identified are Number of Articles published in peer reviewed journals (A), Number of Books published (B), and Number of Case studies and/or Book Chapters (C) published during a given time of observation. The parameter used is a number of full-time Faculty members (F) which remains constant during a given period of observation and the number of research scholar registered for their Ph.D. work. The framework can be used to determine institutional research productivity by calculating Institutional Research Index for higher educational institutions. Further, the model is tested by making use of case examples of seven top Business Schools in India. The value of annual research index is calculated for these institutions for last four years and observed variation of research productivity during these years are studied and discussed.
