Management education and research have at least three constituencies: faculty members, the students they teach, and the businesses that hire them. We look at how the research topics published have evolved, and whether they differ by the prestige of the publication. We then assess whether research topics align with teaching and whether research and teaching align with job market needs. This study focuses on the management sub-discipline of Operations Management (OM), where our backgrounds best allow us to interpret results. However, our approach could apply across most disciplines within management. We use bibliometric analysis to track the evolution of research keywords within academic journals. This allows us to track themes, their interaction, and whether their relative popularity varies over time and with journal prestige and ranking. Many studies have found that work published in top-tier journals tends to be more focused on theory and less applied than less elite journals. We then compare the top research topics found to syllabi from a sample of core course of firings in academic business programs to track whether these themes are being taught. We then assess how frequently these top research themes and course topics appear to be sought in the job market.
