Table notesAlthough the headline ranking figures show annual changes in the data, the pattern of clustering among the schools is equally significant. Some 220 points separate the top programme, HEC Paris, from the school ranked 100th. The top participants from HEC Paris to EMBA-Global Asia: Columbia/LBS form the top group. The second group spans from Washington University Olin at 7 down to the programme by University of St Gallen at 44th. The third group is headed by Essec Business School/Mannheim Business School down to Texas A& M University: Mays at 77. Finally, the bottom 23 schools headed by SMU: Cox make up the fourth group. * Programme not fully available in English ‡ No data
