Hello, I would really like to know your opinion on these two MSc courses, given the recent Post-Brexit scenario. Which one do you think is better for a career in Investment Banking? (M&A). There should be no doubt that Paris offers greater opportunities than Milan not only in terms of Jobs but also in terms of salary. Which school can be considered "target"? Assuming EU citizenship and fluency in both Italian and French which school would you choose and why. Thanks!

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 everyone, My first post at WSO, although I am a long time reader. Currently working in a finance / strategy position at a Swiss corporation, I wish to transition to investment management (PE/VC/HF), whilst at the same time I feel ripe for going back to school. Therefore, I decided to pursue a MSc in Finance. Hopefully, some of you will be able to advice me on schools I listed in my post or/and recommend others. I believe that to transition from my current background, I would need a 2-year degree, as this would allow me to do a few summer, off-cycle internships. Let me know if you think

Hi everyone, I have been admitted to Bocconi and ESSEC for a Master of Science in Finance. At ESSEC I have been admitted to the two-year program, because I hold a 3-year Bachelor's degree. I am italian and I speak also English and French. I have done a 6-month internship, but I don't have any finance experience. I would like to work in Investment Banking at the beginning, and later on in Private Equity. Anyway, as I said, I have little work experience, so this is just an idea. How do these two programs compare? Which one would you choose in my situation? What is relevant to me: reputation
