London IBD Placement after Bocconi MSF for non-EU Visa holder?
I have been contemplating a MSF for a long time to re-brand myself and have a better shot at IBD recruiting. I have looked at Villanova, Vanderbilt and BC in the U.S (not quant enough for MIT and Princeton), and a couple of programs in Europe. Among the European programs, I really like Bocconi for a number of reasons: location (love Italy); reputation in London; more affordable than LSE/Oxbridge; seems generous with scholarship offerings; two-year program so I can find an SA stint during the summer, which is relatively easier than going into full-time recruiting.
However, I am a non-EU Visa holder. I know that Bocconi placement is great in London IBD, but a linkedin search shows that Bocconi alums who work in IBD are mostly Italian, or from continental Europe. Could anyone shed some light on how hard is it for a non-EU Visa holder to get an IBD gig in London with Bocconi MSF in their resume? Any insights would be much much appreciated.
One last thing: Big thanks to @TNA for your awesome site and your golden posts and replies here about MSF.
