MiF vs MiBA

Hi all,

I am unsure wether to apply for a Msc in Finance or Business Analytics, my undergrad was in Finance, not sure if a Master in Finance will be an "overkill" considering I am pursuing the CFA (passed level 1 Dec 19, level 2 expected Aug 21). 

I know the MiF curriculum is broader than the CFA but perhaps a Master in Business Analytics + CFA could be better in the long run? (Considering the "data boom", not entirely sure about this, hence asking)

Goal would be BB but wouldn't mind MBB.
May sound quite different but honestly, I would feel more than okay with whichever.

Age: 23 
Choice Schools: ESADE, IE, Warwick, UCL (open to other suggestions)
Nationality: Mexican (Highly interested in staying at EU, would these schools make it easier?)
Languages: Spanish, English, can handle Portuguese and really basic German
GPA: 87 out of 100 at Tecnológico de Monterrey (top-tier school in my country)
Work Experience: None relevant at applying time, will get around 6 months (IT consulting) before Master's program
ECs: Semester abroad at Austria (non-target)
CFA Research Challenge
Several programming MOOCs
One programming project
