Table notesAlthough the headline ranking figures show annual changes in the data, the pattern of clustering among the schools is equally significant. Some 235 points separate the top programme, Kellogg/HKUST Business School, from the school ranked 100th. The top 12 participants from Kellogg/HKUST Business School to ESCP Europe form the top group. The second group is headed by Ceibs and spans schools ranked 13th to 41st. The third group is headed by the University of Hong Kong in 42nd place down to HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management in joint 85th place. Finally, the 14 schools headed by EMLyon Business School make up the fourth group.
