A recently discovered 2019 study led by Stanford University listed nine D'Amore-McKim School of Business faculty members in a list of the world's most-cited researchers in business and economics. Looking at several indicators, this study analyzed data from 1996 through 2019, covering more than 7 million scientists in 22 major fields.

According to the study's authors, “Use of citation metrics has become widespread but is fraught with difficulties… We have tried to offer a solution to overcome many of the technical problems and provide a comprehensive database of a sufficiently large number of most-cited scientists across science.”

D'Amore-McKim faculty listed in the study include:

  • Paula Caligiuri is a work psychologist dedicated to helping companies, business teams, and executives become effective in today's complex global environment. Named as one of the most prolific authors in international business for her work in the areas of expatriate management, global leadership development, and cultural agility, she has authored or co-authored several articles, books, and publications in leading journals.
  • Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra studies the internationalization of firms, particularly emerging market multinationals; capability upgrading, focusing on technological capabilities; and governance issues, especially corruption in international business. He is a Fellow of the Academy of International Business and co-editor of Global Strategy Journal.
