Not sure if you're aiming for the US or Europe, but Bocconi is a little more recognizeable in the US.

It's not Oxbridge, but smart Americans in finance will recognize it.

I'm in USA, and in Europe if you don't do MBA, I've heard these:

IE, LBS, LSE, Oxbridge, ESCP Europe. Bocconi I've heard before, but maybe just not as impactful as the others. Whether the school is good or not, I have no comments.

Do you speak Italian/have a European passport?

Bocconi is a much better regarded school than Bristol in Europe.

Agree, Bocconi is banker factory -- miles better than Bristol. I don't go to either so no bias.

However, unsure whether not being Italian will be a disadvantage. I've heard London BBs recruit mostly (only?) Italian speakers at Bocconi. Can anyone confirm this?

And to aliasgoldman saying you have an insane amount of academic work: that's actually better, will give you a much better grounding and you will mature up more quickly than at Bristol where you'll be getting drunk every night.

Thank you for your reply,

Not being italian and studying at Bocconi is something that bothers me because I really don't know if it will disadvantage me in BB recruitment in London.

Additionally, not being italian at Bocconi might make networking limited, because italians don't speak english don't you think Bristol might be better in this aspect ?

Bocconi over Bristol any day.

I would take Bocconi. Bocconi is very rigorous and you should expect a pretty tough programme but the school's reputation is definitely better than that of Bristol in finance/business/economics.

I'd encourage you to focus primarily on Bocconi. Better placement and better brand for possible Masters recruitment. Feel free to PM if you have additional or Bocconi specific questions.
