Which Finance Master to Choose

Hi everyone, I am a graduate student at the University of Catania, Italy, studying Business Economics. You definatelly haven't heard of it, and that is why I am searching for a highly reputable finance master's program, my dream is to break in IB in London, but working in other big European Capitals (Paris, Frankfurt) could be good too. I will graduate in September 2023, with my final exam taking place around the first week of September. This is a problem for my admission to most masters programs, as they typically begin in early September (St gallen,WHU,SSE, Edhec). Could you help me understand which master I have a shot into? And which others I could try? 

My Average is 26,63/30 and i should be graduating with 104-106. 

GMAT Practice are around 670-690, but I do still have 5 more weeks to practice, I hope I can break the 700/710. 

I'm currently doing an internship as financial advisor/family banker at Mediolanum Bank

The Finance Masters I'm applying to are: HEC, Essec, Bocconi (AFC Aswell other than finance) and Esade (Although it is a 1 year program, so I'm not too sure). 

Unfortunatelly I can't apply in anything in London, since 35-60k per year + living in London is way above my financial possibilities. 

I am fluent only in Italian and English, so programs such as ESCP are not an option for me. 

I was thinking about IE or Rotterdam, but I'm not sure how good they are.

Please help
