Warwick Business School has broken into the top-10, landing at number nine; the University of St. Gallen's MA in Banking and Finance closes out the top-10. See the top 20 programs below.

So... why isn't MIT Sloan ranked higher? Seems that the salaries are better than all the other programs listed.

Also, crazy jump by Shanghai Jiao Tong!
