Hey everyone! I have been admitted into ESSEC and Bocconi for the MSc Finance program and I have to choose between the two. Please help! These are my opinions regarding the two.

Hi guys, I have recently been accepted to ESSEC MSc in Finance and to the master in economics at Bocconi University. I would like to ask you what is the reputation of ESSEC compared to other universities, since I have read in the previous conversations that ESSEC holds a lower reputation than other unis, but I see that it is ranked better in FT rankings and hold connections with recruiters. For those interested I am italian, I hold a bachelor in economics and I speak french at B1 level. thank you!
