Bocconi BESS Vs Waseda SILS
I'm a high school senior from China (so please forgive my poor English and focus on the content) and I got accepted to Bocconi Economics and Social Science Program and Waseda International Liberal Arts Program in this application season.
I know Bocconi is a really prestigious university in Europe and the BESS program is the most rigourous one among BSc programs in Bocconi, but I suspect as a Chinese, it will be really tough to survive through the next 3 years (both academic and social life). To be honest, I've never seen any East Asian' face showed up in the Gala or any party of Bocconi.
So I understand Waseda might be a more proper choice for me, I just wonder if there is a huge quality gap between the 2 universities? Since I hope to pursue a PhD degree in IEOR/Fin/Econ in Oxbridge or top20 schools in U.S and finally land a quant job in hf like AQR/Tower etc, so I don't care much about how tough breaking into LDN IB as an asian straight after graduation.
Plus, although the program of Waseda is liberal arts, the students can choose concenctrations, if I choose to go to Waseda, I can choose Econ/Math as my major.
Thanks in advance!
