Family businesses are the most prevalent form of business around the world. Published annually, the Texas State University Family Business Research Productivity Ranking provides insight into the universities and scholars at the forefront of family business research.
The annual assessment provides insight into the universities and scholars at the forefront of family business research.

These journals, which serve as the field’s reference point, are listed below in order of their most recent five-year impact factor.

“This latest ranking showcases the impact of research by our faculty, who are leaders in advancing business knowledge in the Charlotte region and globally,” Belk College Interim Dean Dolly King said. “Family businesses drive economic growth and economic mobility and offer important lessons for other organizations. Research that is use-inspired is crucial to family businesses’ success.”
