Duncan, I am shocked to find Syracuse and SUNY in the list. I thought with the location,it would be easier for students to find jobs....Seems it's not the case .....(I am planning to apply to these schools)

How's St louis' 1 yr program..Is it good especially for someone who wants to change career track ...

Why are you surprised?

Syracuse job growth since recession ranks fifth from bottom in New York state: http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2013/03/syracuse_job_growth_since_rece.html

Buffalo's done better as a town, but remember that it gets a lot of international students...

Rensselaer Polytechnic reps have been spamming my mailbox for sometime now hardselling their MBA program. ..I guess RPI is like Hult...

Ouch! Poor RPI! Well, at least RPI is AACSB accredited.

Overall, I question the use of "employed by graduation" as a comparative metric, because I think that the three months time frame provides a better indicator.

With that in mind, UT Dallas is an interesting choice to put on this list - as over 90% percent are employed within three months after graduation... Better than Yale, I should point out, which, by the FT's recent rankings stats, had 14 percent of its graduates unemployed within those three months after graduation. And UCLA Anderson has a similar ratio.
