For Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Christian Homburg and Senior Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Martin Weber, this is the second “double victory” in a row. Back in 2020, when WirtschaftsWoche published its last research ranking, the two Mannheim business professors were ranked first and second in the “Lifetime Achievement” category. Rank 13 on the same list is held by Prof. Stefan Reichelstein, Ph.D.
In the list of the 50 most research-intensive professors of the last 5 years, Prof. Dr. Armin Heinzl (37th place) and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Homburg (41st place) have been successfully placed.
The ranking can be accessed online here with a subscription to WiWo+. The article can be accessed via the University of Mannheim's web access via the WISO database of the university library.
The ranking of the most research-intensive business economists is published every two years in WirtschaftsWoche. The rankings record the publications of persons working at chairs, Fraunhofer and Max Planck Institutes in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (including post-docs and junior professorships). The data source is the bibliometric web portal Forschungsmonitoring, which is operated by the KOF Economic Research Institute at ETH Zurich.
