    Hi guys,
    I am a French student in business/finance willing to pursue a master's in finance next year, and I'd need help with choosing my program.
    Indeed I was hesitating between Bocconi's Masters in Quantitative Finance & Risk Management (Mafinrisk) and Bocconi's MSc in Finance.

    Are any of you guys familiar with Bocconi's programs? I totally get the difference between the Mafinrisk and the MSc in Finance in terms of duration, cost... But I was wondering if there was any differences in terms of placement stats and intensity (are both programs as demanding?).
    I sent an email to both programs but only the mafinrisk replied, telling me to ask the MSc for their opinion.
    Which one would you recommend and why?

    To me it's a big advantage to attend the mafinrisk as it is only one year and "only" 14.5k€ whereas the MSc in finance is 2 years and therefore 2*12k€... But graduating in 2 years gives you the opportunity of doing a summer internship (increasing the chances of landing a grad position when the program is done) and also studying at a slower pace.
    My goal would be to either go into IB or Asset Management, I am still trying to figure out which one fits me best.
    I'd like to stay in Europe (London, Geneva, Paris or even Monaco)

    My back-up plan would be GGSB's MSc in Finance, which looks to be a step below Bocconi in terms of everything, but correct me if I'm wrong. I also got accepted into Cass MSc in Investment Management but it looks very expensive and they ask me to write my TOEFL again, which would be a pain.
    Thanks in advance for your opinions

    Hello T_Laurent. I'm new to this thread but I have the same questions you mentioned in your post regarding the differences between the 2 programs in terms of placement, intensity, and networking and recruiting opportunities. Please let me know if you were able to get any further information on these questions.
