Bocconi AFC Master or ESADE MSc Finance  [#permalink]

New post 05 Jun 2017, 06:38
Hi all,

I have been admitted to Bocconi and ESADE and I am struggling to choose the right school. At first my priority was on Bocconi but since I am only admitted for the Accounting, Financial Management and Control Master and not the Flagship Master in Finance, I am think of choosing ESADE due to its good reputation and the flagship MSc Finance.

I know the reputation of Bocconi in general is maybe a bit better but I think since I will only study the tier2 AFC Master maybe I have better chance by studying at ESADE the MSc Finance.

What do you guys think? Let me know your thoughts and experiences :)

Many thanks guys ;)

I advice you to follow your gut. You do not need to choose schools just for its name. If the program in ESADE is what you want, then study there and enjoy it, although Bocconi posses high reputation. ESADE is good as well.

What is employment status from both schools? Do you have European citizenship?

Hi,

Yes I have European Citizenship so Visa or something else is not the problem. In general I like the program at Bocconi a bit more because it is two years but I thought maybe the reputation is not that great, compared to ESADE because of the Accounting, Financial Management and Control program, which is not the flagship MSc Program at Bocconi.

If I would be admitted for the MSc Finance at Bocconi I definitely would prefer Bocconi over ESADE.

Thanks.

Personally I prefer Bocconi than Esade. 1. location 2. name/brand

Congrats on your acceptances! Both are great schools, and I've had the opportunity of visiting both, and doing an exchange semester at Bocconi. I don't think you can go wrong with either, but I found Bocconi's support staff very friendly, along with a great amount of career support (even for exchange students)

Thanks for the info :)

I decided to go for ESADE basically because of the MSc Finance Program. They offer great electives and the program structure is more attractive for me than the Accounting Financial Management & Control Master. I also think that the competition at Bocconi is more intense because there are around 160 Msc Finance Students plus an additional Number of AFC students. In addition, I think many employers know that AFC is mostly the program people choose, who weren't admitted to the MSc Finance.

I hope ESADE was the right decision and the School has a good reputation to offer me some great career opportunities.
