USA vs Asia vs Europe for Europeans


Hello, I am an Italian professional thinking about an MBA next year.
I have a background in FIG M&A (from a big4 but in Italy we are really strong and comparable with major investment banks) and the aim of the MBA is to end up in PE/VC after graduation.
At the moment I am interested in three main programs: Kellog - INSEAD - HKUST.

My biggest doubt is: if I would like to come back in Italy after graduation, the MBA in Hong Kong will keep a good value or is it better to stay in Europe (INSEAD) or at least looking for USA (Kellog)?

Thank you for the help!

Insead is much better than HKUST.

HKUST is pretty decent school, but I don't think is good option for working in Italy.

Kellog is a very good school with great outcomes. I am not sure about its network in Italy specifically

Bocconi even though is ranked lower, is much much better option for working in Italy than HKUST, or Kellog. Maybe consider it?

Thank you very much for your answer!

I know Bocconi is very good, but I would prefer to use the MBA also as an international experience I was not able to do with my previous degrees.

Maybe the Bocconi Asia Campus is an option? Or take an exchange semester in HK?

Insead is probably your best bet if Bocconi is off the table. These private equity / VC networks tend to be very tight, though, so have a backup plan. Insead would have great leverage across Europe in consulting, for example.
