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 14 participants from Kellogg/HKUST to Ceibs form the top group. The second group spans from University of Chicago: Booth at 15 down to the University of St Gallen at 45. The third group is headed by Tongji University/Mannheim Business School down to Baylor University: Hankamer at 89. Finally, the bottom 10 schools headed by Texas A & M University: Mays make up the fourth group.
