We provide a research ranking of academic finance departments that incorporates both a quantitative and qualitative dimension in its methodology. Based on the strengths of the various approaches in the literature, our modified citation approach includes all research outlets (not just finance journals and not just journal articles) as long as the research work has research impact, which is measured by having at least a moderate number of citations within a set of premier finance journals. The top-5 finance departments are the University of Chicago, the University of Rochester, MIT, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania.
