MSc in Finance : LSE vs ESSEC vs Bocconi vs NUS
I've received offers for the MSc in Finance & Private Equity at LSE, the MFin at ESSEC (Singapore campus), and the MFin at Bocconi. I'm also admitted to National University of Singapore (NUS) MFin and MiM-CEMS dual degrees.
I value academic reputation quite a lot (ESSEC is thus put at a disadvantage here) and placement in IB/AM in London. The rationale behind applying to ESSEC's Sg campus is to gain exposure to both SG and Europe job markets, but I am curious to know whether LSE and Bocconi have a strong enough brand name to recruit in Singapore after working 2-3y in Europe before. NUS is top-notch in Asia of course but I wanna make sure it leaves all doors open after graduation (Europe + Asia recruiting).
My profile: graduated with distinction from a top uni in Canada and I've been working at a large pension fund in London for a year (Private Debt/Direct Lending). Interested in working in London but I am very keen to work in Asia someday in the future (Sg or HK, depending on what the situation will be in HK).
Thanks for sharing your insight
