    Since you are from Spain, are you looking for the program is taught in English? If so, I would recommend to stick university in English speaking country. Of course, almost every country in the union speak English, but I think British universities/colleges might be a good choice. Here are the top 20, and depends on your field of study as well.

    1 1 Cambridge
    2 2 Oxford
    3 3 London School of Economics
    4 6 Imperial College London
    5 5 Durham
    5 4 St Andrews
    7 7 Warwick
    8 12 Surrey
    9 11 Lancaster
    10 10 Exeter
    11 8 Bath
    11 13 Loughborough
    13 9 University College London
    14 16 Southampton
    15 18 Bristol
    16 15 East Anglia
    17 14 York
    18 17 Birmingham
    19 23 Leeds
    20 21 Edinburgh

    Following the 2014 QS ranking, Top 5 universities in Europe are as follows: University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, University of Oxford, UCL (University College London), ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. But again, you should tell us what field of study you are interested in?!

    As I am looking for an MBA I happened to come across this website : Online Education & Accredited Degree Programs | WorldWideLearn.com which has a lot of useful info but is specific to the USA. And thanks for the list Tekman. Do you know by any chance if any of those schools offer masters specialized in marketing (vs. finance)? I'll just go through the list and give them a look anyways... Thanks!

    That's a bigger question than "can someone suggest a good college in the USA?"

    Yes, an english speaking country seems more appropriate however, if any other good university in germany or else... I could think twice!

    Thanks everybody for the many answers.

    I have to admit I wasn't clear enough... To sum up my situation, I am currently searching for an accredited european university for my bachelor. Preferred fields are Management & Business with classes taught in English. UK seems to be my number one choice, however, I would totally consider going in some other countries like Germany or else if the school is good enough.

    The Open University Business School is in the 1 percent of global business schools that have Triple Accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA).

    If you read through their website then you'll know as much as I do about them.

    I know I shouldn't ask for such a question but first, after looking at the website I wasn't able to find the list of accreditations and second, I don't exactly know which ones are state recognized and which ones are not.

    Thank you very much in advance,

    Maybe these Open University links will be of assistance in answering your questions (re accreditation: Institutional (US Regional and UK Royal Charter), Programmatic (AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS) and The Open Business School rankings)):

    “The Open University is also one of only three United Kingdom higher education institutions to gain accreditation in the United States of America by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education an institutional accrediting agency, recognized by the United States Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.”

    Hello Major56,

    Again, thank you very much for all of the information given on the school. It definitely feels like a really interesting school indeed! I might most probably prepare an application to send their way.

    However, I am always keen on getting other tips on different schools since I am not convinced I'll accepted either and I can't stick to one application only.

    Wishing you a very good day.
    Sincerely,
