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 215 points separate the top programme, University of St Gallen, from the school ranked number 80. The top 12 participants, from University of St Gallen to Esade Business School, form the top group of Masters in Management providers. The second group, headed by WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business), spans schools ranked 13th to 41st. Differences between schools are small within this group. The 26 schools within the third group headed by Kozminski University are similarly close together. The remaining 13 schools headed by Corvinus University of Budapest make up the fourth group.
