Hi,
I am into financial analyst role in India. After completing MBA I want to come back and take up management/business development role. I am more inclined to Aston, but since 2013 it has drastically declined in all major rankings, appears worrisome. Also, Most of the people here are suggesting to go for Leeds, it is more popular than Aston in India.

In a nutshell: Given the slim 10% difference, I think Leeds is certainly a better choice.

If you want to return to India, and don't need placement support, then I think either of these schools will be okay. At the bottom end of the FT 100 it's hard to stay in the rankings. Leeds and been in and out as well. That said, Leeds is a larger school and in almost every way a better one, and will have better students. Unlike Aston, Leeds has a well-ranked MSc in finance (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2017) which might speak to the school's credibility in the finance sector (where I guess you are more likely to find a management or business development role).

PS As a parent university, it is also better. At the undergraduate level, also, Leeds is ranked 6th by the Guardian, while Aston is 41st (https://www.theguardian.com/education/ng-interactive/2016/may/23/university-guide-2017-league-table-for-business-management-marketing).
