I have a BSc in Economics with a focus on Finance from an Italian University, GPA 4/4, speak Italian, studied for 3 years in English (level C2 according to IELTS), 720 GMAT, previousat a bank in Milan (not IB).
Career ambition would be to work in a quantitative fund. I am clearly also open to more options, as I know that it is very difficult to get in a fund right after graduating. IB would be the alternative.
I would rather work in a fund in Milan than in IB in Switzerland though.
So I have been admitted to:
MSc in Finance at Bocconi (with a full tuition fees scholarship),
MIQE/F at St. Gallen - Master in Quantitative Economics and Finance,
MSc in Finance at ESADE (with scholarship),
Still waiting on Financial Statistics at LSE.
I know this has probably been asked a thousand times, but what do you think about the options?
I like the programme at St. Gallen because it is very customizable and it has a quantitative focus, but I could also choose a quantitative track at Bocconi, so I am leaning more towards bocconi at the moment (also, full tuition scholarship and the fact that I am Italian and I have friends studying there play a role).
In case I am admitted at LSE, would the MSc in Financial Statistics there give me a better chance at entering a fund?
Thank you all!
