Yeah, if your employer funds your studies, that can be great for both sides.

But when you think about it, there's also another incentive involved here: for a company like Toshiba, it makes sense to send their employees to a school without many connections to other potential recruiters, rather than a top-tier school with tons of high-profile corporate recruiters. This ensures that they don't get picked off by somebody else as easily.

And for most employees, who want to stay in their current firm, it's fine to do a program at a school like Middlesex. But if they had other intentions (transitioning to another firm or industry, for instance,) this school would make less sense.
