    It has been over 15 years since the world's centers of research excellence in the management of technology and innovation (MOT) have been acknowledged. We have updated this area of interest through a new study on the current centers of excellence, furthering our investigation in the sub-field of technology entrepreneurship (TE). We based our study on the boundary conditions utilized in previous research, adding new metrics while retaining several of the old. We limited our data sample to peer-reviewed journal articles in recognized base journals. The centers’ research nature and quality were assessed via a series of 37 metrics. We found 809 schools with publications in MOT-recognized base journals and identified 77 non-U.S. centers in Asia, Australia, Europe, South and North America and 21 U.S. centers that meet our criteria for research excellence. Further, a detailed analysis was conducted for the 21 U.S.-based schools, considering metrics such as the number of publications by researchers during the study period, the MOT publication history, editorships of the professors of the centers in the base journals, and number of articles. Similarly, we identified 17 International centers of TE excellence out of the 348 schools that published in TE. We provide tiered results of the top schools excelling in selected areas.
