MiM/MFin from Bocconi?

Hey guys. I am an international student. I want to break into MC/IB. I am still conflicted about the two. But I'm leaning more towards IB. I don't have the relevant work experience for both. Hence, I was planning to do a Masters to help me with rebranding and possibly more opportunities. The thing is I want to work in London/any English-speaking EU countries post Masters. Would Bocconi be a good pick for me? I heard that sometimes opportunities are confined to folks who speak the native language and heard Bocconi places strongly in London. Is it stronger for Bocconi's MSc Finance or is it also true for MiM as well? Also is it too late to apply to Bocconi for the Fall '24 intake?

If there are any other programs on par with Bocconi's MiM/MFin, please let me know. Would love your input. Thank you.


Profile for reference:

Work experience: 9 months as an Operations Analyst at FAANG

GRE: 324 (165Q and 159V)

IETLS: 8.0

Career goals: Investment Banking/ Management Consulting

 

I don’t know how well Bocconi places in London but am fairly sure that the HEC MiF places pretty well there. They also have the #1 MiF according to Financial Times and I think they do a study trip in London which could help.

 

Hello! Thanks so much for the reply. I am well versed in HEC Paris' allure. However, I think I will be rejected even if I apply since they're too stringent on admitting students from prestigious unis in their home countries. This is not my case. Also, I only have a GRE score of 324 and not along the 330s. I'm not planning to take the GRE again. That's why I decided not to apply to HEC.
