Does study abroad uni reputation affect career?

Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'm currently considering two options for study abroad (am currently in undergrad).

One is Bocconi, obviously well-known in finance but I've heard Milan and Bocconi specifically are not ideal for having a fun study abroad experience. My other option would be another decent Italian university like UNIBO/UNIPD but basically irrelevant when it comes to IB/PE/HF, however those universities and college towns are known for being a lot better from a social life perspective. 

Basically, my question is if studying abroad at Bocconi vs. another lesser-known Italian university would make a noticeable difference in my US IB/PE recruiting efforts. My current line of thinking is it's probably not that important, maybe just a minor incremental difference since it's just a study abroad program and I'm recruiting for US roles anyway.

I realize this is the GMAT/B-school forum but no idea where else I could post this lol
