Issue is the following.

GPA - assuming that 2.5 is based on a US 4.0 scale, that is low.
GMAT - 680 isn't horrible, but it isn't stand out either
TOEFL - Pretty low

Top school in India will help and your major will offset the lower GPA to a degree. The spanish programs you are looking at seem about right. I'd maybe look at some lower ranked UK programs. HEC is almost out of range and a long shot. I don't know too much about the other ones.

Hey there,

Masters in Finance , being one of the most competitive MiM degrees, generally favors some kind of background in finance (Academics/Work Experience) in its applicants.

Since you want to transition directly from technology to finance without work experience, you will have to showcase a strong motivation and a solid long term goal in application.

You do have a quantitative background, which you can use to support your mathematical acumen.
Having said that, top B-Schools like HEC are extremely competitive and are known to attract more applicants than Harvard’s MBA program!
So, it might be a challenge to differentiate yourself from the applicant pool.

As far as your scores are concerned, most of your Target schools do not require a TOEFL score.

Your GMAT Score is pretty good although your CGPA is lower than what is needed for Europe MSF programs.
However, you can compensate for it by highlighting your other strengths like your leadership skills, internships, passion for finance, projects etc. Essays are an excellent space to do this, so make sure that you are spending enough time perfecting them.

You have a host of extra-curriculars but what really matters is what impact you created through each one of them.
So remember to quantify your achievements and rewards in your application.

You can find some tips on how to tackle the M.Fin application here http://www.mim-essay.com/masters-finance-essay-editing/

Good luck!
