Out of Nova Portugal, UC3M, HEC Lausanne and polimi Milan which is the best for msc finance


Given the reputation of the school. Suppose, a person spoke the languages would you just suggest a person to go to the one that is highest ranked in the ft ranking? UC3M is not ranked so will it be worse than the rest? Polimi is a solid school supposedly. Nova has terrible reviews on Quora, WSO etc

Polimi is, as you say, the strongest of those schools.

What about UC3M? Can the graduate quality be compared to esade? They seem to have a very mathematical course work

No, I think you can see on LinkedIn that these Spanish schools place people into rather different roles. Esade students have better backgrounds, are more multilingual and have a broader educational experience in their MSc.

could you compare esade it to polimi then? What about nova? I haven't taken the GMAT as yet but am going to take it soon. I know many of my friends who scored a 610, had below average acads and got into esade, bocconi and escp. Schools like IE have massive class sizes.
It could be that these schools have a right skewed distribution when it comes to the quality of the candidates with a very long tail.

The big difference is that ESADE is an elite, private, business school, and only modestly has grown into other areas like law or modern languages. It is a business school deeply rooted in the national and regional economy. Politecnico di Milano is a state-run, meritocratic, long-established technical university. In that sense, it's more like Nova than ESADE. Politecnico has two very different, and relatively new, business schools. DIG, the school of management engineering, has a well-respected and well-understood programme of deep education. Its MSc is a heavyweight, two year, degree ranked by the FT. On the other hand, the MiP MSc portfolio is a bit more lightweight and is aimed at international students rather than the domestic market (hence the accelerated MiP structure of six months of classes followed by six months of internship).

Because national labour markets are so different, it's hard to compare. Bocconi dominates the Italian market. Politecnico is very different. ESADE's brand and power is closer to that of Bocconi than of Politecnico. Either way, MIP MSc graduates will be on much lower salaries than the MiF graduates from Esade and Nova, and DIG alumni, and that's one reason why MiP isn't in the FT pre-experience rankings.

PS. In short, if I wanted to study finance at Politecnico in order to work in Italy, I would go to DIG rather than MIP, after an intensive Italian course.
