Go for Hult or University of Colorado Denver.

Other ones to consider from your list could be Saginaw Valley State, Long Island University, Pittsburg State University, Arkansas State University, Florida International and Curtin.

In the US/UK, I would not even think about applying to any programs without AACSB or AMBA accreditation.

Can you name one bank which has moved its headquarters to Leeds? I know First Direct has always been there, and of course the Yorkshire Bank. Second place is not the centre, and the idea that Leeds has more banking jobs than Edinburgh seems hard - especially at the MBA level.

According to the Office for National Statistics, London has 333K financial services jobs, compared to 36K for Edinburgh and 32K for Leeds. In terms of MBA-level jobs (which would be most appropriate) the difference is even sharper:

I just searched LinkedIn for MBAs working in the UK in finance (Accounting, banking, financial services, insurance and investment banking). That gives 17,000 results - an excellent sample size. London has more than half of them: 8839. Edinburgh comes second with 443, with more than double the place in third place: Harrow (213). Then come Twickenham, Birmingham, Manchester, Reading, Glasgow, Guildford... In terms of MBA finance vacancies, Leeds (with 137) isn't even in the top ten.

Hi Maria; since I am the one providing facts for both Leeds and other cities and you are not providing anything beyond the claim that Leeds is the UK financial centre I don't think you;re in any position to be chiding me about balance.

The data I cited about employment were published by the ONS in October 2010. The LinkedIn data are live.

I don't exactly understand the point you're making about the growth of MBA jobs in the UK. Let me make the point I am making: Leeds Met's alumni are overwhelmingly in the UK, but there are also modest pools of alumni in other countries, especially India, the US, Spain, Australia and France. An MBA with a focus on international employment seems, to me, to be a way to say that non-EU students should not expect to get jobs in the EU as a result of this programme. Those non-EU students are the principle audience for the graduate MBA. That then produces a few options:
1 - Those students will mostly return to their own countries (I think this is most likely)
2 - Those countries will mostly return to other countries (I think this is most unlikely, since you have neither a active MBA alumni organisation nor a well resources MBA placement team).

If I am getting any of that wrong, please let me know.

Certainly the big growth in MBA opportunities are in the BRICS member countries, and post-experience, accredited MBA programmes get good results for their students there. However, they get those results because of their brand, student quality, network and resources. I don't see how Leeds Met can really hope to be gettings its students into roles in the high-growth countries which are very different from the role its MSc graduates get.

I find they way that you appear to profess about a Leeds Met alumni some what incredulous-more facts less subjectivity please. Your perspective is yours and every reader should read with caution as statements made are subjective and speculative. For anyone wanting the facts please contact myself.

Maria, none of my data about Leeds Met alumni are subjective; of course you have offered no data. Anyone can buy premium access to LinkedIn data, which gives an excellent sample of alumni of UK universities, and that confirms what I have said. they can also check for themselves your claims that Leeds is the UK financial centre to which banks have moved their headquarters.

If my data were really incorrect, you would correct them here rather than ask for private messages. But actually your problem is not with the data but the reality of graduate MBAs: the graduates do not get substantially different results from MSc graduates in management. I appreciate that my line of reasoning is uncomfortable but please do engage in the discussion you started rather than running away from the facts.

Your statements are subjective an example is "the graduates do not get substantially different results from MSc graduates in management" not underpinned or supported this is only your perception. MBA candidates at Leeds Metropolitan University are taught the difference between subjectivity and supported statements.
Nothing uncomfortable about responding to your subjective statements.Please be cautioned about taking an individual's
perceptions as accurate factually.

Hi Maria. Look if you were comfortable responding to statements then you'd produce a fact. Again, the LinkedIn data I have used comparing over 2,000 LMU alumni with MSc degrees versus MBA degrees show no real difference in the seniority of the roles they get (the major difference is that MSc students seem to have been more likely to have taken internships or other jobs while studying).

If you say there is a difference, then say it. But please do understand the deep irony of suggesting that my comments are subjective, when I am the only person in this conversation referencing any facts at all.
