I studied a broad in college for 4 months. Good times.

In all seriousnes though, Bocconi is a well regarded school. Check out thestudentroom forums as well and try to get in touch with students from schools you are interested in.

Consider this a once-in-a-lifetime chance to master a foreign language.
If you speak any Spanish/ French/ German, go to the respective country!

I'd choose country/ city first, university second.

i don't think the university is all that important in the study abroad context. most universities affiliated with study abroad programs are good enough. as the above posted mentioned, focus on countries you are interested in (culture, language, etc.).

the only exception to this is if you are from a non-target and believe you could benefit from a prestigious university's name on your resume. in that case you could consider programs at LSE or Oxford.

Agree with previous two posters. Country/Culture should be the most important factor here - if you've already got any language skills (French, Spanish, Italian, ...) you might want to go to that country to improve it. University brand name of school abroad doesn't really matter. I was at a non-target on my exchange (am from Europe, went to HEC Montreal because they have an incredibly awesome exchange program) and got a BB Analyst gig after my BSc

Study abroad at Oxford or Cambridge offers a pretty good trade-off between prestige and fun - you're not expected to do much in the way of academics as an exchange student, and the terms are very short so you have plenty of time to travel around Europe
