ESADE BBA versus Bocconi Undergrad Watch

Hey,
I’m a senior in high school, currently in Atlanta, Georgia. I got accepted to both the ESADE BBA program and the Bocconi undergrad program (BSc).

I speak French & English fluently as I lived in France for the first 14 years of my life. I took 2 years of Italian but forgot most of it to be honest. I like the fact Bocconi is a 3 year Bachelor, as well with its popularity, but most of all it’s connections and proximity to luxury/designer brands. Fashion is something I hold to heart yet I don’t know clearly what path I want to explore in the industry yet (hopefully something creative). Bocconi also comes out cheaper than ESADE, so that’s another plus.

On the other hand, ESADE is in Barcelona, and I’d finally be able to speak spanish with some natives after almost 7 years of learning it and being practically fluent. Something just tells me I’d prefer Barcelona because it would be more natural for me to live in a country where I don’t need to learn the language. I have also always had an entrepreneurial aspect to myself and ESADE’s BBa stresses that. I feel like it’s more an environment that would push me to create something like a product or start a brand.

I have less than a week to lock in for either of these by paying the down payment on the 18th for ESADE or the 21st for Bocconi, and i’m really torn between both of these schools.
Any thoughts are appreciated , as my case is pretty specific coming from the US for an undergraduate degree in Europe.

Thank you,
TC
