BOOKMARKED
Hi

I read a lot of information in this forum that helped me a lot with my applications.
Now I got some answers and it's not easy.

A got an offer from Warwick MSc Finance and Economics and from Bocconi MSc in Finance.

What do you guys think of that choice?

I think that the 2 year Bocconi programme might be a good point because I dont have any significant work experience in Finance yet. But Warwick seems to be a pretty good degree, especially in the UK.
I don't care starting my career in Milan or London (London would be a bit better) but in the long run I would like to come back home

What do you think about the reputation of those programmes in their respective countries and in Europe in general?

Thanks for your help!

Bocconi is a great program from what I've read. I also got admitted to it, but I'm waiting on the scholarship decision.
How you applied anywhere else besides those options?
Do you mind sharing your profile.

Congratulations to both on the admissions. Re Bocconi, I have been serching through their Msc Finance website and I can't find the tuition fee. Can you please let me know how much is it?

Depending on the tuition I would recommend one or the other. If Bocconi is expensive, then the opportunity cost of that extra year would be very high, as compared to WBS (high tuiton but working a year earlier). The good thing about Bocconi though, is that you can learn a new language in those two years.... and also... Milano, girls, Milano girls.

On a different note, I couldn't find anywhere whether we have to provide letters of recomendation or not. Did you send them any?

Thanks!

Edit: Ninja-edited to include answer to OP.

tuition is 11000 eur per year
as for recommendation letters, it's a mixed bag. in the list of documents to be sent through the postal service there is no mention about recs.
however, in one of the emails I got couple of days before application deadline, it was indicated that one can send rec. letters if he/she wants.
bottom line: I did send a recommendation letter. But I don't know if that helped anyhow

they ask for only one, or two? I just hate these letters so much, they are that one thing that does not depend entirely on the applicant.

haha yeah!
their worst trolling, though, is the 2000 euro first installment by end of February, which sucks, since my main choice (SSE) releases admission in late March.

I also got selected. I didn't submitted the reco letters, so seems that it doesn't impact application in any negative way. :)
And yeah, worst part is first installment...waiting for scholarship decision..
I am also doing my research to find out more about the program.

Any idea how does brand Bocconi compare with other good colleges in Europe?
Anyone talked to any alumus or current student to find out about the program, placements etc??
