2. The percentage increase in average alumni salary from before the EMBA to today as a percentage of the pre-EMBA salary. This figure includes data for the current year and the one or two preceding years, where available.

3. This is calculated according to changes in the level of seniority and the size of the company alumni are working in now versus before their EMBA. Data for the current year and the one or two preceding years are included where available.

4. Work experience: This measures the previous experience of EMBA participants by examining seniority of positions held, number of years in each position, size of company, and any international work experience prior to starting the EMBA. The data is presented as a rank and the top position is one.

5. Aims achieved: The extent to which alumni fulfilled their most important goals or reasons for doing an EMBA. The data is presented as a rank and the top position is one.

7. Women students: The percentage of female students.

8. Women board: The percentage of female members of the advisory board.

9. International faculty: The percentage of faculty whose citizenship differs from their country of employment.

10. International students: This criterion amalgamates two pieces of data. The first is the percentage of participants who are resident in the country of the business school but whose citizenship is different to that country. The second is the percentage of participants who are resident outside the country in which the business school is situated. The data is presented as a rank and the top position is one.

14. Faculty with doctorate: The percentage of faculty with a doctoral degree.

15. FT doctoral rank: This is calculated according to the number of doctoral graduates from each business school during the past three years. Additional points are given if these doctoral graduates took up faculty positions at one of the top 50 full-time MBA schools of 2006. The data is presented as a rank and the top position is one.

16. FT research rank: This is calculated according to the number of faculty publications in 40 international academic and practitioner journals. Points are accrued by the business school at which the author is currently employed. The total is weighted for faculty size and appears as a rank where the top position is one.
