MiF vs MiM - Career paths - Suitability

Hello everyone

I'm applying to several of the better European business schools by end January, here's my profile for context

  1. Scored a 690 Total (Q47, V38) on the GMAT, and 7.5 IELTS

  2. Acc&Fin first degree, majored in Finance

  3. Been working in Deloitte Greece for 2.5 years, on a Financial and Management Reporting focused team. Can state some extracurriculars such as being a member in my Uni's Swimming Club. I also run the Deloitte Hiking Community.

Given my solid GMAT score and work experience I think I have a decent shot at well esteemed schools such as SSE, WU Vienna, NHH, and maybe some of the bigger fish (Bocconi, HSG, HEC Paris, LSE)

Having already majored in Finance I expect to already be familiar with a lot of the MiF curriculum, while a MiM curriculum with finance focused electives seems more appealing to me at a first glance.

However I'm divided about whether I should pursue a MiF or MiM at said schools, and would like some of the more experienced users to confirm or comment on the following:

  • Are career prospects similar between the two? Is it possible, say, to work as a financial analyst after a MiM, or at a top consulting firm after MiF

Note that I'm not really sold on the heavy finance jobs such as IB/PE(?) due to the dreadful 80 hour weeks I keep hearing about.

  • What are career options that offer a decent W-L balance?

-Should my chances of being admitted be similar between the two? A lot of programs seem to favor applicants having the respective BSc as the MSc, which doesnt make sense since you're supposed to pursue a MSc for a related but different subject.

Bump? Don't leave me hanging nerds 

Also, can someone TL:DR me about Masters in International Business?

The curriculums make it seem like kind of a meme degree, but I hear they are esteemed higher in rankings etc compared to MiMs
