Table notesFootnote: Although the headline ranking figures show changes in the data year to year, the pattern of clustering among the schools is equally significant. Some 280 points separate Kellogg/Hong Kong UST Business School at the top, from the school ranked number 95. The first eleven business schools, from Kellogg/ Hong Kong UST Business School to National University of Singapore School of Business, form the top group. The second group is headed by UC Berkeley/ Columbia, which would need to increase its score by 5 points in order to move up a group. Top of the third group is Tongji University/ENPC which is seven points behind Cranfield School of Management. Only 25 points separate the top and bottom schools in this third group. The fourth group of EMBA degrees is more spread out, separated by 80 points.
Footnotes

1. The average alumni salary three years after graduation. (The 2009 EMBA ranking is based on data for alumni graduating in 2006). This figure includes alumni salary data for the current year and the one or two preceding years, where available.

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. 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.

5. The percentage of female faculty

6. The percentage of female students

7. The percentage of female members of the advisory board

8. The percentage of faculty whose citizenship differs from their country of employment

9. This combines 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

10. The percentage of the board whose citizenship differs from the country in which the business school is based

11. The percentage of classroom teaching hours that are carried out outside the country in which the business school is situated

12. Number of languages students are required to speak on graduation

13. The percentage of faculty with a doctoral degree

14. 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 2008

15. 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
