In this paper, we provide a global ranking of finance departments in business schools for the past 20 years and the past decade. The ranking is the first of its kind in many respects – it includes publications in the top 6 finance journals (by 2021 impact factor) as well as a host of top journals in Economics and Accounting. The rankings provide a per-capita sort where we compute the ratio of total publications by the number of finance faculty in the department. The rankings use a “manipulable” database that allows the user to change the time-period, chosen journals and whether to sort rankings on per-capita or gross output.
