Help please: Vanderbilt MSF or SDA Bocconi MCF?O
I have been accepted to both of these programs. Vandy places more emphasis on quant, Bocconi offers a more rounded program. After completion, I hope to go to work as an analyst for a boutique or mid-market IBD focused on alt energy and/or clean technologies. I am a US citizen but would prefer to work in Europe if I had the opportunity to.

USNews Best Grad B-Schools 2008: Vandy â€“ 34.
Which school would you pick? If you hire in the US, is Bocconi familiar enough that you would consider a candidate from there? What about Vanderbilt in the EU?
Thanks in advance for your consideration of this matter.
