Oxford vs SDA Bocconi [#permalink]

I just received final offers from those two bschools, and I have roughly two weeks to make up my mind and decide which program to attend next year. Since I am not leaning toward any of the two options, I want to ask your opinion ("which one? why?"), taking into account that:
- I am Italian/29/male - I would like to develop my post-MBA career in Europe, and it would be even better if that could be Italy - I lack some relevant work experience (I am an academic) - My first option in terms of sector would be management consulting, followed by Energy/Tech/Pharma - My background is BSc+MSc+PhD in Environmental Engineering (Water/Waste/Green Energy/etc) - currently research fellow at an Italian university+some relevant int'l experience - My GMAT is 690, my TOEFL 113 - A scholarship would be more than welcome, given my career path (very low salary if compared to the private sector) - I love Oxford and I am sure the year I'd spend there would be awesome - at the same time I know Milan is the right place to be in Italy as an MBA student
To sum up, I am torn between these two programs, for each of them has its strengths and weaknesses. Any kind of help would be very welcome, especially if focused on post-MBA career opportunities. I'll be happy to provide you more detail about my story/ambitions/background/anything else!

I would vote for Said. It's a better school than Bocconi and also the Oxford brand is very strong. I don't know in detail about their placement stats but when I visited Oxford they were carrying out LEK interviews, so 2nd tier firms MC firms definitely recruit there.
