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 250 points separate the top programme, University of St Gallen, from the school ranked number 90. The top 11 participants, from University of St Gallen to Università Bocconi, form the top group of Masters in Management providers. The second group, headed by EBS Business School, spans schools ranked 12th to 45th. Differences between schools are small within this group. The 21 schools within the third group headed by Télécom Business School are similarly close together. The remaining 24 schools headed by Burgundy School of Business make up the fourth group.
