Im 22 years old spanish student with almost my bachelor in Economics finished. I want to study a master in finance. I have no work experience (Im from Spain and labour market is **** up) but I was an Erasmus student (I went to Maastricht, the Netherlands) and also I went to LSE through their Summer School, studying Fixed Income. My GPA is somewhat low (aprox 7/10).
First target was IELTS, which I did with bandscore 7.0. Next step would be GMAT, and maybe I will take CFA in June if I don't find a job.
My target schools are:
-MSc Banking and Finance in St Gallen:
Pro: 5'5K, prestigeous school with great laboral oportunities.
Cons: living cost expenses, high GMAT
-MSc Finance and Investments in RSM
Pro:1'9k(cheap) in a great country where I have already lived
Cons: I don't know if it's well recognized outside Netherlands
Msc Finance in ESADE
Pro: In contrast with other options, I live in Barcelona so there are not additional living cost. Very well recognized in Spain.
I know that Im not genius so I would apply to LSE, OxBridge. Neither I don't want to apply to UK schools, because Im not rich and Msc Finance there are very expensive, + living cost added. Im considering other options such as Maastricht,Tilburg or Bocconi. Im late for SSE
What do you think? I need some other backup plans
