The role of research-embedded higher education is regarded as one of the driving forces of any growing economy. Higher education institutions (HEIs) are recognized, among their peers, for their quality of research outcome. Hence, with growing emphasis on research worldwide, HEIs strive hard to improve their research output. The proposed study endeavors to make a longitudinal comparison of research outcome of HEIs from the BRICS Nations, with special emphasis on management and its allied discipline. As the centers of ancient wisdom and learning, BRICS nations have many things in common. They are envisioned as the economies that will drive growth in the future. Quantitative data from the Elsevier’s Scopus database were used for comparative analysis. The findings of the study provide ample insights to discuss the key areas to be improved, to provide research impetus and developing policies to scale up research in management.
