The researchers of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM) traditionally do well in the Economists Top 40. In the 2019 edition, Tilburg University ranks second, after Erasmus University Rotterdam, and TiSEM takes the lead in its output of high-impact articles.

The Economists Top 40 is an annual ranking of researchers working at Dutch universities and is published in the Economische Statistische Berichten magazine. In the 2019 edition, not only TiSEM as an institution does well; its individual researchers also perform extremely well. Seven Tilburg University researchers are listed in the Top 40 and the only listed woman is from Tilburg: Els Gijsbrechts (#34).
