Best business "cheap" schools for master in finance

Hello,

unfortunately I am unable to afford the master programs at schools like LSE, LBS, HEC, Boconi etc.

So I wanted to ask if there are any other top business schools in Europe - I was thinking of Rotterdam or WHU - but do I still have good chances of making it into IB with these schools?

Thanks

Depends on where in Europe you plan to work after you complete your MSc and also where you are from. If your goal is London, you could break into IB/PE from more affordable programmes like Bocconi, St. Gallen, WHU. However it seems that London recruiters choose students from these unis not only because of their programmes, but also because they are native speakers of "target" languages for Europe coverage (German/Italian/French).

RSM is a solid alternative considering its price. Also, most Dutch speak English almost fluently which is not the case for Germany. So unless you are fluent (which you are) then you should go to WHU.

One of the best value for money schools must, for sure, be Nova SBE. Pretty cheap, been rising a ton, great placements into London and Frankfurt!
