Table notesAlthough the headline ranking figures show some changes in the data this year, what is equally significant is the pattern of clustering among the schools. Some 225 points separate the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania at the top, from the school ranked number 85. The top six business schools, from Wharton to the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, form the top group of schools. The second group is headed by London Business School, which would need to increase its score by seven per cent overall in order to enter the top group. The third group is headed by the Johnson School at Cornell University which is more than 15 points behind the Stern School of Business at New York University and the fourth group is headed by the Boston University School of Management which is 4 points behind Villanova University. Some 50 points separate the schools in each of the four groups.
