Hi guys, I have already read a lot of discussions on similar topics but I would really appreciate if you could give me a specific advice.
Well, in July I am going to graduate at Universita degli Studi di Pisa, right now my average score is 29/30 and I think I can make it to graduate with 110 cum laude. I have a 700 in the GMAT and 7 in the IELTS test (I got 6 in the writing part, basically losing the conditional offer I had received from RSM) and I have just finished an erasmus stay at Universite du Luxembourg. I have no relevant working experiences and I speak Italian (I am from Italy), english and just a bit of French.
I would like to work in a financial institution such as the ECB or IMF in something related with the banking sector. That's my final purpose. Of course before that I would like to make experiences in commercial banks or working as financial analyst.
Having said that in order to allow you to have an insight into the kind of person I am, here is my "issue": which is the best MSc Programme for me? :?: :?: :?: :?:
-MBF at University of St. Gallen: I have read several conflicting reviews. I am worried that it is not very suitable for a non speaking german. What do you think?
-MSc in Finance at Tilburg University: I have already received an offer. A good programme but is it recognized in the labor market?
-Msc in Finance at Bocconi: It is too expensive, do you think it is possible to get a scholarship? I know I should be accepted with a 700 in the GMAT. Moreover I have read that the first year is really tough with a lot of maths for which is required a strong knowledge, isn't it?
-ESADE's Programme: Again it is expensive but I find the programme really interesting with the chance of doing a second year in another university.

My first choice was St. Gallen before reading several negative reviews, so now I am stuck. I have not yet applied at bocconi and ESADE and I do not know if spending again 200 euro for 2 applications is worthwhile.

Please provide me with your ideas and suggest me also other good programmes.
Thank you in advance.

Bocconi is a top program. They provide scholarships depending on how well you do with the GMAT. It is difficult though. A buddy of mine is doing the program now.

St. Gallen is another top program, but i've heard the issues you've heard of as well. ESEAD isn't horrible. Why not some UK schools?
