thank you for your email. You have a great CV and you should have good chances to
at most of the business schools of your list.
Please understand that I cannot give you information on whether your chances are slightly higher at one school or lower at another schools. It may depend on many things - for example if the school already has many applications from people of your nationality, then it may be more difficult to get in (because the school wants diversity and may prefer applications from other countries).
But I can tell you that your CV in general fits very well and - again - I am sure that you will receive admission at most schools in your list.

I am planning for MiM course for 2013 intake.
I have completed my graduation in Mechanical Engg from Pune University with distinction in the final year.
I have done my project internship form ZF Steering India.
From July 2011, i have been working with Minda Valeo Security Systems (Auto Ancillary).
My job profile is project management, which has a considerable amount of finance involved.
**So with 18 months of experience, am i eligible for MiM in Finance/International Business?
I wanted to inquire this because most of the MiM related programs gave me an indication that it is mostly for fresh graduates.**
Also, i cannot apply for an MBA because the colleges i want have a minimum criteria of 3 years of work experience. (I will be completing 18 months in jan'13).
I have scheduled my GMAT for March'13.

the Financial Times publishes a Master in Finance Ranking on a yearly base categorized in pre-experienced and in post-experience programs.
The Pre-Experience Ranking lists 35 programs that focus on fresh graduates. But focussing on fresh graduates doesn't mean that people with 18 months of work experience are excluded. So, if you like some schools here I would still contact them and ask.
The Post-Experience Ranking lists only four schools that target people with work experience.But targetting people with work experience can mean that they require more than 18 months. Hence, if you like a program here you may still contact and ask them.
Unfortunately, we don't have that factor ("How many years of professional experience required?" ) included in our Search Engine - so you will need to check this out program by program.
But my general guess is that your 18 month sof work experience should NOT be a problem in most Masters in Finance programs. Would be great if you could share your experience with us in the next months.
One more recommendation: You may want to search for Masters in Finance that explicitly require a first degree in business or economics. If I read your CV in the right way you have sufficient pre-experience in finance that you don't want to start from the scratch again. Hence, I would use the Entry Requirement Filter in our Search Engine and directly search only for programs that do require a first degree in business or economics.

Thanks for your reply.
Have noted your points. I'll go through the "Entry Requirement Filter in Search Engine" as suggested and get back to you.
Meanwhile i am on the verge of finalizing my list of universities. I'll share that as soon as i am done with it.
