Copenhagen Business School Finance MSc (+CEMS) or Erasmus Rotterdam Financial Economics MSc?

Which masters would would maximize my opportunities/Which one would you choose? Career-wise, after 2 internships in IB (Central-European MM IB) I would like to move towards either Consulting, PE, or AM/HF, which I know are miles apart from each other, but couldn't make up my mind until now.

Thanks!

I would go to Erasmus. Simply because the name of the university is great and the Netherlands is a country that is friendly to international talent. Plus, considering its economy is one of the best in Europe with regards to the ratio GDP/Size.

MSc Financial Economics at Erasmus for sure. Reason is that the programme is quite flexible given that you have to do 5 electives (doesn't matter what finance courses you would like to take, i.e. you're not bounded by certain finance tracks) and 2 seminars. Furthermore, Erasmus University Rotterdam has a strong financial study association called FSR that organises International Banking Cycle every year, where several IB visit the campus for recruitment. Also, the uni has the largest student investment society of the Netherlands which has several alumni working in IB (bulge brackets in London), PE, consulting or trading (Optiver, Flow Traders). Hence, good for networking.

Note that Erasmus is considered as a target school for IB in London.
