IMO you should not limit yourself to applying to schools based on tuition cost. There is always a chance for scholarships and such. either way, I'd say my top 10 "affordable" MBA with good career prospects and employability are:

(cut offs, 36K or less a year, 85K or more salary+bonus, 80% or more employed 3mos post mba)
-School ---------Tuition--avgGmat--Employ%3mos-Salary+Bonus
BYU--------------22K----672----------91.9%------------108,227
Wisconsin-------27K----675----------85.8%------------105,614
Texas A&M------21K----649----------93.9%------------104,723
Georgia Tech----36K ---678---------93.7%------------101,612
UIUC-------------30K----650----------83.7%------------94,331
Georgia----------30K----637----------86.8%------------91,830
Penn State------35K----643----------80.0%------------91,563
Temple----------36K-----643---------97.7%------------87,297
Umass Amherst10K---655----------95.0%------------86,491
Iowa------------34K-----665----------89.6%-------------87,026

If you want to sort and filter the data check out the US News rankings it may be worth it to purchase the compass to really get deep into school data.

I repeat though, do not limit your choices due to cost.
Gool luck!!


edit: quick side note, I did not get into specifics of specializations, some of these are stronger in finance then others. This is just a starting point.

That was a great help!

I checked US news ranking its full of private universities...i could hardly see one in top 50.But you are right scholarships are good way to get rid of the heavy tuition fee also your list is very helpful.

Thank you
