Kind of on the fence between Bocconi's MSc. International Management vs Finance. I keep hearing how lots of the finance students are douchebags and uber uber competitive to the point where they sabotage each other for grades... not that I don't enjoy some competition though. Got a couple friends in the Int Mgmt masters, they have also gotten interviews at both sell and buysides, so I'm not sure which masters would be a better option.
Let's hear it from everyone else! Looking forward to talking to all of you.
Italian student here, I applied for Esade's MiF+CEMS too, got my official interview scheduled for the end of this month!
About Bocconi's finance students, that's all true, they're known everywhere in my country to be douchebags and yes, you're not the first one to hear about sabotage.
That's why I'm not applying to that university, whose Master in Finance is anyway very well known in Europe.
Hope to hear your news soon, good luck!
