Abstract: Abstract Many universities around the World have made important contributions in the field of operations research and management science. This article presents the most productive and influential universities between 1991 and 2015. For doing so, we use the Web of Science database in order to search for the information which is usually regarded as the most relevant for scientific research. The results show the country of origin of the leading universities being mainly from North America and Asia and especially from USA and China. The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) of France is the most productive university while the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) of USA is the most influential one. The temporal evolution shows that USA is trailing its dominancy while China progressing quickly. The evaluation also reveals that Asian universities outperform North American universities during the last 5 years.
