I have been admitted to HEC, Bocconi and St. Gallen for a master in Finance, and I am struggling to know which School to choose.
About me: I am from Belgium, I speak French, English, and Dutch, this will be my first master, I ve just turned 21 years old. Gmat: 760, I love maths.
My areas of interest are: Financial Markets (not really interested in Corporate Finance), Asset and Wealth Management, Investment Funds
Later, I would love to work in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, or in Russia (Moscow or St Petersbourg). However, this is not a necessary condition, I love London and other more common destinations for Finance Jobs too.
The amount of the tuition fees is not relevant for me at this stage, I am more interested in the placement opportunities, reputation and teaching quality of the schools.
What would you guys do if you were me? and why?
My main concern about University of St. Gallen is that their placements are almost always in Switzerland or Germany, and this school seems to have less international recognition than HEC, would you say the same?
Thanks for your precious answers!
