I am currently in my first year of IB, studying at an international school. I am interested in studying economics, but I am unsure as to which university I would like to target. As I said, I am still about 10 months away from applying, and therefore I am simply looking for information regarding different courses at different universities.
I would like to know the difference between top US schools (IVY, MIT, Stanford, etc.) top UK schools (Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, etc.) and other top European schools (Bocconi, Zurich, etc.) The main questions I have are:
1) Which have actual higher educational quality?
2) Which provide the best prospects for the future?
3) Which provide the best student life?
Money is not necessarily a problem, but graduating with an extra 100k is definitely something to keep in mind. As I said I am only in my first semester of IB, and so my grades aren't final, but currently I have scored 40/45, with an A in ToK. I take Math, Physics, History and Economics at a Higher Level, and Spanish and English Lang/Lit at Standard Level.
Thank you so much guys!

The difference in curriculum and format of the different places will be huge. You should narrow down the list based on your preferences and ability.
Do you want to live in the US or UK?
Do you think you have the ability to get into Harvard/Cambridge?
Would you be studying pure economics?
Would you be interested in living in the US after graduating?
Answer these questions and perhaps you will have better questions to ask.
