MBA Choice


Hello everyone,
What would you suggest for someone who would like to complete an executive MBA while working in Italy?
I tried looking up the various posts and I realized there aren't many options.
Ultimately it comes down to either EMBA in Bocconi, or Politecnico di Milano.
Both would be OK as I live in Milan, but I wanted to gather some additional opinions as I understand the Bocconi EMBA is not as well received as the regular MBA.

The ultimate goal would be to leave Italy for a top tier Finance position.
As is, I am 32, with 6-7 years of work experience.
Please let me know what you think and feel free to suggest different solutions.
Thanks in advance to whoever is going to answer the post.

The key point here is that you want to leave Italy. Although Bocconi's full-time MBA is better understood than its EMBA, it remains a better option for many people than MiP or MiB. ESCP Torino is a good option too. However, if you want to leave Italy then you should think about where you want to end up. Which schools have the best EMBA networks in the country you are most likely to end up in. 

Finally, if you want to work in finance why not take a masters in finance?

Hi Duncan,
Thanks a lot for your advice.
I will consider a master in Finance, however I see that most job postings for CFO / Finance Director require an MBA.
Thanks again for the help.

I think it depends on the country you are aiming for. In the UK, where I live, a CFO is more likely to be a chartered accountant than to be an MBA.
