I am currently completing my Bachelor degree in business at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University and will be starting my MSc in Finance coming fall. I have been admitted to LSE (MSc Finance and Private Equity), Bocconi (MSc Finance, including a full tuition fee waiver), ESADE (MSc Finance) and SSE (MSc Finance) thus far. Although LSE has been my preference all along, the free tuition at Bocconi now led me to reconsider my choice.
I believe my chances to break into IB in the UK right after my Master (although my long-term goal is PE) are better if I decide to go to LSE, but what is other people's opinion on that? Would I have significantly worse chances coming from Bocconi? The MSc at Bocconi includes a mandatory internship, which LSE does not, and since I do not have much experience in banking, could that provide me with an advantage, as opposed to coming from LSE without major work experience?
Any help in making this decision is appreciated!
