Two faculty members in Fisher’s Department of Management and Human Resources have been named top leadership scholars by The Leadership Quarterly, a peer-reviewed publication focused on the scientific study of leadership.  

Tim Judge, senior associate dean for programs and outreach and holder of the Joseph A. Alutto Chair in Leadership Effectiveness, was listed as the third-most influential leadership scholar of all time.

“I am humbled to be part of such an august group of leadership scholars,” said Judge, who serves as the executive director of the Fisher Leadership Initiative. “Ohio State has been one of the pre-eminent universities for the study of leadership, and I’m grateful to be a member of a university that has made historically important contributions to our understanding of leaders and leadership.”

The ranking is the latest for Judge who, in 2017, was named the most influential author in industrial and organizational psychology, according to Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice.

Jasmine Hu, an associate professor, was named among the top 10 most productive leadership scholars between 2011 and 2017.

“I am honored and humbled to be listed among many well-respected leadership scholars and am motivated to continue working on enabling a deeper and fuller understanding of leadership in organizations,” Hu said.

The rankings were derived from an analysis of 3,190 authors who published at least one leadership article in 10 top-tier journals within the management field.
