LBS INSEAD and HBS may be a challenge for your profile. Although you have a nice cultural diversity play being Greek, it would frankly be a better story if you had been working in Greece given the tumultuous economy and international attention there over the past couple of years. Working in the UK as software developer may not wow the committees particularly if your plan is to try something new like finance. Generally, to get into these world class schools, you need a tight story that indicates your career has been intentially pursued to lay the foundation for your post MBA vision. HBS and LBS look for the best potential international leaders in the world and you will face some stiff competition from the most academically and professionally elite candidates in the world. Additionally, HBS is notorious for giving older candidates more scrutiny, and at 29 or 30 when you start, it's likely that your achievements will not measure up to their requirements. But don't lose heart, as you have a good profile for b-school, just perhaps not at a top 5 in the world school. There are plenty of good schools in the 10-20 rankings range including several in Europe and Asia. Certainly you identify HEC and imperial and you could also look at Esade. If you want to go for LBS or HBS as a stretch, you should do so, keeping your expectations in check and perhaps working on your leadership story as well as your overall theme so that it appears your path has been more intentional and less random as it pertains to connecting with what you want to do after B-school. Hope this helps.
