Hey guys,

I recently got accepted by both IE and HEC in their Master in Finance Programmes. I really do not know which one to choose though.

On the one hand, IE seems to be really up-to-date with a new specialization in FinTech which is amazing. They are also highly ranked throughout the last few years and they have a very rigorous curriculum with a lot of quantitative courses and with focus on both theory and practise. The programme team is AMAZING, they are very polite and helpful and I believe that Madrid will be an ideal place to study. On the downside, I do not know if the reputation of IE is sooo strong.

On the other hand, HEC has an amazing reputation with rankings 1 or 2 the past few years. They also seem to have a great curriculum, which seems to be more demanding in the first period than IE. They focus very much on finding you a job and they suceed on that. On the downside, I have heard that students there are veeeery competitive which is not so appealing since it is about studying not about making someone fall so as to rise yourself. I also recently heard that although courses are done half by top practitioners and half by academics, the are not so well structured and you ge a bit "lost".

What is your opinion guys? I am really troubled and I would like some insights.

Thank you very much for your help

If that's all that's involved, there is always value to go with the more established brand. There is greater likelyhood of getting a job and also the whole program is more worked out in terms of kinks and weaknesses.

In general, specific details you end up learning in the program, won't be immediately used in your job. You will use the overall and general skills such as "building models" or "using excel" or "valuations" but don't worry about specific classes or courses you may take. Nobody will be hiring you because you took 1 course so don't stress if a class is not available at HEC.
