Esade with 85% scholarship vs HEC ~ full tuition
Hoped it wouldn't come to this but here we are. I have admission offers from both. As the title suggests, esade gave me a generous scholarship totalling 85%. HEC gave me a tiny scholarship that would just make it at esade's original tuition.
I know HEC has the highest quality in the MSc level. The problem is that I would have to take an expensive loan (10% over 3-month, and prepayments would be subtracted from the total compounded amount, in this case €97k) to cover tuition only. Esade on the other hand offers very cheap loans for international students (2% fixed annual rate with flexible prepayments options, but keep in mind I'd only consider borrowing some €5k here to aid with living costs, so it's almost free).
Is HEC worth the high expense? Or should I be content with esade?
I'm currently interning in deal advisory at a big4. Hopefully I'll do something better in the coming months now that I passed CFA level 1. My goal is to get into London AM, second to that is.
Happy to hear your thoughts.
