The authors of the article Top 50 authors, affiliations, and countries in maritime research studied academic output published in 65 journals specialising in transport and logistics between 2000 and 2015. Between 2011 and 2015, Jason Monios and Pierre Cariou were ranked 5th and 9th for their impact scores, this being assessed based on the reputation of the journals in which they were published. Over the whole 2000-2015 period, these two professors from KEDGE were listed respectively in 8th and 11th place.
"This article clearly shows that KEDGE is up there with the world's best in the field of research into Supply Chain Management, of which the maritime component features highly", explained José Milano, Director General of KEDGE Business School. As part of our academic research strategy, Supply Chain Management is part of our School's three centres of excellence".
The professors Pierre Cariou and Jason Monios are both part of KEDGE's Supply Chain Centre of Excellence. They teach students on the International Trade & Logistics programme, the ISLI - Global Supply Chain Management programme and the KEDGE Mastère Grande Ecole programme, as well as being involved in Executive Education, where among other things they have participated in training managers as part of a bespoke international programme for the CMA CGM group.
Changes in the shipping industry are contributing to the expansion of the global economy but have also led to the emergence of a number of issues attracting growing interest from the scientific community over recent decades, and to which KEDGE has contributed.
