The advance in the rankings in Americaeconomía.com noted that "the production and dissemination of knowledge variable has become one of most competitive variables among business schools. The increasing investment being made by schools to continuously gather more and better research is notorious. The best proof is the high growth in ISI papers being written by full-time professors. While in 2008 the base only reached 497 papers, it reached 801 papers this year, an increase of 78% in one year.

América Economía will publish its general ranking on June 1.
