MIM programmes to target for my profile in UK and Europe


I am from India and I have done BTech in Biomedical Engineering from NIT Rourkela( reputed college from NIT Rourkela)
I have one year of work ex in data analytics (sales analytics for US pharma bigwigs)
Here is my profile info:
CGPA: 7.12 Xll: 93.9%
GMAT:700+ (targeting) IELTS(7.5-8) (targeting)
I am a trained classical singer and I have a ton of extra-curriculars from college (debating, singing, mental health initiatives, campus journalism)
Goals:
Short term: To enter at a managerial level in an MNC and learn more about operations/marketing/supply Chain
Long term: To head a department and contribute to key decision making in the company and settle in the country I am in.

My questions:
1. Some colleges (LBS, Imperial, LSE) have stated a min CG of 7.5. Should I or should I not target these schools?
2. Do I have a shot at HEC paris, ESCP? Is ESSEC a good option to consider for me?
3. I hear that many MIM students come back as they don't get a job. How much of this is true? Reliable sources for placements stats?
Please help me.

This is a fairly common profile for an Indian. I applied to Imperial and didnt meet their minimum grade requirements but got in anyway. Noone looks at your XII GPA dude. With even a 650+ GMAT you will have a good shot at Warwick, ESCP, IE, ESADE. It is really easy to get into these schools and I dont know anyone who got rejected provided they had a 650 or above. Hell I know a guy with 570 who got into Esade. LBS depends on your GMAT. ESSEC is a good option too but I would go to a top school in an english speaking country like LBS if given a chance.

That's great to hear.
How is Imperial like? What kind of opportunities are there after an MIM from there?

I didn't choose imperial. It is a good school but I would say it is strong for finance. It places well at top bulge brackets. The MIM at imperial is not too strong. Why don't you try for LBS first?

For the time being just take the GMAT and apply to all these schools. Also it is better to go to a top school of any country country than a sub par school in the UK. LBS, HEC, St Gallen/ Bocconi in that order.

Imperial's Master in Management is ranked in the FT, so I wouldn't say it's 'not too strong.' If this candidate is looking to transition to the UK, there's a good argument to be made for Imperial versus Bocconi and even St. Gallen.

But I would agree, LBS and maybe Cass would be better options. Smurfit to a lesser degree.
