It's pretty easy to judge by looking at placement stats and composition of student body as well as a bunch of international rankings.

Thanks for the answer.

I also know that it is pretty easy but I want to learn about people's experiences and thoughts because most of the time the documents and reports are misleading so let us be a little more constructive and enlightening.

I was accepted to HEC and almost submitted my application to Bocconi (along with St. Gallen, it was my backup).

From what I gather, Bocconi's strengths rest in its finance and economics programs. The school also has a sterling reputation in Italy (obviously) as well as some ties with Eastern Europe. There's somewhat of a presence of Bocconi alumni in London.

HEC has a better reputation and broader network, so this school will give you more options in Europe.

I don't think that entrepreneurship plays a major role in either school. But HEC is probably a better option for consultancy, unless you aim to work in Italy.
