Table notesAlthough the headline ranking figures show changes in the data year to year, the pattern of clustering among the schools is equally significant. Some 219 points separate Kellogg/Hong Kong UST Business School at the top, from the two schools ranked number 89. The first ten business schools, from Kellogg/Hong Kong UST to Insead, form the top group of schools. The second group is headed by Purdue/Tias/CEU/GISMA, which would need to increase its score by 11 per cent overall in order to move up a group. Top of the third group is the Robinson College of Business of Georgia State University which is 7 points behind Stockholm School of Economics. Only 40 points separate the top and bottom schools in this third group.

1. These data are for information only and are not used in the rankings

2. Salary today US$: The average alumni salary three years after graduation. (The 2007 ranking surveyed the EMBA class that graduated in 2004). This figure includes alumni salary data for the current year and the one or two preceding years, where available.

3. Salary percentage increase: 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.

4. Career progress: 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.

5. 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.

6. Aims achieved: The extent to which alumni fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an EMBA.

7. Women faculty: Percentage of female faculty.

8. Women students: Percentage of female students.

9. Women board: Percentage of female members of the advisory board.

10. International faculty: Percentage of faculty whose citizenship differs from their country of employment.

11. International students: This combines two pieces of data: the percentage of participants who are resident in the country of the business school but whose citizenship is different to that country and the percentage of participants who are resident outside the country in which the business school is situated.

12. International board: Percentage of the board whose citizenship differs from the country in which the business school is based.

13. International course experience: Ranks the number of classroom teaching hours that are carried out outside the country in which the business school is situated.

14. Languages: Number of languages students are required to speak on graduation.

15. Faculty with doctorate: Percentage of faculty with a doctoral degree.

16. 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 2007.

17. FT research rank: This is calculated according to the number of faculty publications in 40 international academic and practitioner journals. Points are awarded to the business school at which the author is currently employed. The total is weighted for faculty size.
