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 190 points separate the top programmes, Cems, from the school ranked number 50. The top 8 participants, from Cems to Mannheim Business School, form the top group of Masters in Management providers. The second group, headed by Esade Business School, spans schools ranked 9th to joint 23rd, a range of some 51 points in total. Differences between schools are small within this group. The 11 Schools within the third group are similarly close together. The Euromed Marseille Ecole de Management, which heads this group, is some 30 points above Kozminski University, the last school in the third group. The remaining 14 schools make up the fourth group.
