Hello, I am a MiM student (MSc in Management, also said Junior MBA, for the non-Europeans) and I have the opportunity to study abroad next year. I was wondering what could be seen better in the future: a semester abroad in top European universities (ESSEC, IE, St. Gallen, etc.) or a semester in Asian universities (SMU, Fudan, Chinese University of Hong Kong, etc.)?

Some background: I graduated from a non-target state school with a 3.15 GPA (B.S.

Hi everybody, I have a few questions regarding my choices for Masters degree. I'm a 20 year-old french student and I am about to graduate from McGill with a bachelor of commerce, major in Finance. My initial plan was taking 1.5 year off to do long-term internships, get work experience in several finance fields and then apply to grad school in September 2022 but considering the current situation, I am struggling to get an internship right now so it might be hard to find three before Fall 2022. I am now considering applying to Masters in Finance at business schools in France (HEC, ESSEC, ESCP)

Hi! I have a little champagne problem here. I was recently admitted to both programs and offered a women's merit scholarship for both of them (almost of the same value). My goal is to secure an IB position after graduation in London if LBS or Paris if HEC, and to remain in Europe. I come from South America and have done a couple of internships in my home country at top tier local companies. I have an intermediate level of French, but since Spanish is my mother tongue it shouldn't take long once I get to live in France to speak French fluently. The reason why I chose the MiM and not the MIF is

Hello, I am applying to the Msc in Finance programmes at LSE and HEC as I just received my GMAT scores. I am a bit worried because I will likely not receive my official GMAT scores until a couple weeks (late application will hurt my chances) plus my GMAT quant score is not stellar. Could you please tell me how likely do you think it is for me to get into the programs, considering my situation? My profile: -GMAT: 710 (90%) Q47 V40 -Bachelor: Economics a target university in Spain with a 8.60/10 (8 out of a class of 160) -1 year Exchange: University of Chicago: Booth (Economics, Corporate

Hi all, I am facing a decision to pick a master's in finance program and would really appreciate your experience and insights. In short about me, I am Croatian with a non-target bachelor's degree in Economics with high GPA, 9 months M&A internship in UniCredit CEE team in Vienna and student exchange at NUS in Singapore. My ambition with the Master program is to first land a summer internship in IBD in London, and then hopefully an FT role. I got admitted to HEC Paris Master in International Finance (#1 in FT ranking) and Bocconi Msc in Finance which I both see as very good and well-regarded

I'm looking to study abroad in Europe and I've narrowed down my choices to these schools: ESADE Bocconi University HEC Paris School of Management Rotterdam School of Management IE Business School (Madrid) I would really appreciate any advice or comments, particularly from those who have attended any of these schools. From my understanding, all of the aforementioned schools have prestigious reputations, but I'm more interested in a good overall international experience. In my opinion, studying abroad is for having fun and getting out of your comfort zone rather than academics. I'm looking for

Looking for thoughts on the value of HEC Paris' Online Master's in Innovation and Entrepreneurship in terms of 1) overall program - topics / information; 2) reputation in industry; 3) cohort quality; 4) instruction / professors and 5) how viewed by prospective employers.

Hi guys, I received offers for both the MSc Finance at LSE and the MSc Finance at HEC Paris. I am really having a hard time deciding which one to confirm... at the moment, slightly leaning towards HEC Paris. Here are some of my thoughts... > Pro HEC - ranked n1 BS in Europe by FT (2 years on a row) - a real business school, not a university like LSE - placement should be fine, based on their salary statistics (http://www.hec.edu/MSc-in-Finance/Employment) - small class size, about 20-30 people in MSc Finance, but you attend the core courses together with the Grande Ecole Degree students, electives in small groupes - would be able to improve my french - less expensive > Con HEC - are they famous within the financial sector? Do they even have a brand name in the industry??

Hello everyone First thank you all for being part of this forum and making it as great as it is. I have been a long time lurker and I really benefited from numerous valuable threads and discussions, but with the important upcoming decision where to pursue my masters I decided to reach out for advice and start my first thread. I have been accepted to the SSE Master in Finance and to the Master in Banking and Finance at St Gallen. Furthermore, I am still waiting for responses from HEC where I applied for the MiM whithin which I would pursue the finance specialisation/ double-degree and a double
