    Of those four, Miami gets the most transplants from the Northeast, and has a strong business program that you can take back north after graduation. Of the state schools, UF has the best academic reputation for business, and is considered a feeder school for finance/Wall Street jobs:

    @BOBROSS - The article states:
    Here’s how the ranking worked. Wall Street Oasis began by cross referencing member interviews with member undergraduate programs. After segmenting interviews by employer, they compiled the number of interviews that each school had with 29 leading Wall Street firms. Wall Street Oasis could’ve listed the number of interviews that each school received with a particular firm. However, they decided to take it further, with the goal of showing each school’s relative strength across Wall Street. To do that, Wall Street Oasis compiled a list of the top 10 schools for each firm and based their ranking by percentage (within that top 10).

    For example, at JP Morgan Chase, New York University received the highest percentage of interviews. 17% of the interviews among the top 10 schools involved NYU students. Wall Street Oasis also looked at school performance across the 29 top firms to formulate a “Power Ranking” score. To be considered for a top ten ranking (at a particular firm), a school must have produced three or more interviews with that firm.
