Is the Kcl better than Bocconi for economics? Which degree is better to attend to a top master in the U.K. (LSE, UCL) or in the US (Harvard, Yale, Columbia) ? Is kcl worth it ? ( I know its remarkable prestige, but not economics wise). I hold an offer from kcl for a Bsc in economics.

KCL isn't very good for Economics in the UK - it probably rates 5th in London after LSE, UCL, Queen Mary and SOAS.

Bocconni has a world leading economics faculty and has produced a number of leading economists - it has a fantastic reputation.

However you should choose the place where you think you will perform best at since what really matters is grades for a MSc and for that you need to enjoy where you study.

Standard disclaimer here to visit the universities you're thinking of to ensure you'll be happy to live there for a couple of years. It's probably even more important here if the difference is between two countries with their own language and culture. If you don't speak Italian and don't have a huge passion to learn the language, you may not enjoy a couple of years there as much as you would in London at KCL.

A masters from a top university in the UK will still be extremely attractive to employers as one from a top university in the US. No-one is going to bin an application from an LSE applicant just because there's also an applicant from Harvard.

Bocconi definitely has an excellent reputation within Economics in Europe and has good representation amongst top firms (standard finance ones etc.) if employability is important to you. KCL still has a good reputation as a university globally (so has arguably greater name recognition as a university around the world) and by being based in London, offers a better base for networking, internship opportunities etc., but probably isn't as well-considered in the field of Economics.
