Cass vs. SDA Bocconi [#permalink] New post 18 Jun 2009, 03:47
Hi -

I would like to get your thoughts on these 2 european schools. I have been admitted to both, and I am having a hard time deciding (Cass in London or Bocconi in Milan). They are not within the top ten in Europe, but I think they are both strong schools.

FT ranking 2008:

Bocconi #38
Cass #41

My Background:
>Engineer
>5 years Mgmt Consulting (Madrid 2 years, New York 3 years)
>Spaniard
>28 years old

Objective - to transition from Consulting to Product Marketing and/or maybe Strategy/General Management
- work internationally in Europe, Asia, US... no particular country in mind, wherever the best opportunity may be.

From a US perspective, I know that these programs are not well known, however would you happen to know which of these 2, may have more of a name to US recruiters?

Which of these 2 programs is more international? Maybe Cass as it's in London? However Bocconi does a bit better in most rankings, and it has an exhange program of 4 months with top schools across the world (Columbia, IE, HKUST, UCLA...)

Thanks in advance for any advice!!

Well, if you're just focused on getting *any* MBA-type of job, then chances are the majority of those jobs will be in the world's business centers - US Northeast (mostly New York), London and Hong Kong. Cass is in London, which will likely make it more convenient when it comes to job hunting, since in Europe that's where most of the MBA-type jobs are going to be (especially when Cass and Bocconi aren't worlds apart in terms of overall reputation). As for US recruiters, it will come down to you and your own efforts, since neither school will be familiar to most American recruiters.
