Cementing IMD’s position as a global leader in rigorous and actionable thought leadership, our academic and practitioner article output increased across the board in 2023, with articles in FT50 journals increasing to a record 24 and in other academic peer-reviewed journals to 42. Furthermore, IMD continues to be the third most published institution over the last five years (after Harvard Business School and MIT Sloan School of Management) in the two most impactful practitioner-oriented magazines – Harvard Business Review and MIT Sloan Management Review.
