Hello guys! I have to choose which Msc Finance programs to apply. I have double citizenship Italian and Spanish and speak fluently both languages. I have a Bsc in Economics from a public italian university (high gpa), one internship in a big4 and 700 at the GMAT.
My goal is to get a front office position in London but I would rather prefer not to study in UK... I was more propense to choose SSE because it lasts two years and I would be able to add additional working experience through a summer internship (Bocconi it's difficult for me to be accepted because they prefer foreigners) but I read somewhere in the forum that front office positions are given only to Swedish speakers..
Which schools would you suggest me to have better chances to achieve my London goal?????

Thank you!
SSE is the only one I have applied to actually I am waiting for a response.. Looks like I'll have to focus on Bocconi, HEC, and the british...
I am a bit unsure that huge investments in London schools are worth today because of Brexit. Maybe I will apply and see what happens anyway

I agree with the others. To be honest, during my internship there were more people from Bocconi than HEC but the overall consesus is that HEC is better.

I am currently waiting to hear from HEC. If i dont get in I will apply to Bocconi.

What schools did you apply to and what programs?

I applied to HEC, LSE and Bocconi and my preference is that exact order.

(Asking because I've seen you comment on a related-but-different LSE consideration thread too :) )
