SSE or HSG? [#permalink] New post 09 May 2013, 01:51
Hi guys,

I've been accepted to both the MBF programme at St. Gallen and the MSc Finance and Accounting (Corporate Finance or Investment Management) at Stockholm School of Economics. I honestly don't know which to choose. First of all I don't know German nor Swedish. My career goal is to to work in asset management in London, but to be honest I'm not that sure about this, as I have almost no work experience and cannot really decide what will be interesting to me. I would very much prefer to live in Stockholm, because it seems like a great city. However, if I manage to learn German, another job market will be open to me as well, which will be great. Moreover, I am not really sure whether I will be able to socialize as much in Switzerland as I presume that there will be less internationals and everybody will be speaking German.

What do you think? Which programme is better and will give me a better shot to land a decent job? Thanks ;)

Well, many large banks and companies in Switzerland require only English (German skills is of course an advantage) so you will have another choice of employment. However, living in St.Gallen may be boring compared to Stockholm.
