ESCP/Bocconi or Gap Year?

Hi Guys,

I am an italian guy and I have to choose between MIM ESCP/Bocconi CEMS international management for next year or the alternative option to take one gap year. I have never considered this possibility, however pandemic emergency led me to evaluate it, because online courses suck  and I would like to "live" cities like Milan or London. I could spend the year doing one internship and then  starting the master in 2022 (so graduating one year later). What do you think? Would it be a waste of time?

I'm 22 now, master lasts 2 years so if I take a gap year I will graduate at 25 (maybe too old for IB in London?) and the problem is that I doubt I would find a good internship, maybe just something in a small consulting firm (local firm) or in a medium company.
