Tilburg School of Economics and Management once again ranks high in Economists Top 40

Published: 09th January 2020 Last updated: 08th August 2022

The researchers of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM) traditionally do well in the Economists Top 40. In the 2020 edition, Tilburg University ranks second, just like last year, after Erasmus University Rotterdam, and TiSEM takes the lead again 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 2020 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: Sigrid Suetens  (#36). The #2 position will be taken by Bart Bronnenberg. This makes him one of the more stable factors on the list: in recent years he was successively ranked 2, 4, 5 and 5.
