Executive Master or MSc?


KPopper
I'm going to obtain a MSc in Finance cum Laude from 2 Top Italian Business School and I'D like to work in IBD in Italy, France or UK.
I am looking through different schools profiles and figured out following courses from accredited business schools:
1) EMIB from ESCP, distance program with on-campus seminars. Great network and career services and very recognised in Italy (ESCP has a campus in Italy)
2) Master of Science in Global Finance from Gabelli School of Business - Fordham University (Double Degree with my university but only 6 weeks in New York to gain the Msc)
3) MSc in Financial Markets and Investments from SKEMA Business School, 4 Top Master in Finance according to FT but, probably, not at the top level
I'd like to improve my cv
Main goal is big international financial companies job markets. Like UBS, Credit Suisse, SGIB, Goldman...

Luiss students pay around $16,000 extra for potentially six US credits in the Fordham summer session. That seems like a lot for a little. The EMIB will teach you nothing new about finance, and it's not a well respected programme. I don't understand why Skema is your only option for a more specialised masters in finance, but it is more appropriate to your goals.

Thanks for the reply, Duncan. Because I have no GMAT and taking another MSc in Finance looks like a waste of money and time and I can attend EMIB during my internships.
Between Fordham and EMIB which do you think has more impact on the placement? Do you know a strong online/blended MSc?

EMIB cannot have any impact really. The Fordham MSc is solid but it is not well known. Why not take the GMAT? Even if you don't prepare you will probably do okay.

I wouldn't consider a New York based program if you're looking to work in Europe. Much fewer networking / career building opportunities.
