thank you for your question. For the moment and based on the few information you gave me, I think your chances are good. Now try to do good interviews. I recommend you checking this thread to learn more about this.
Since you will have about 2 years of work experience, when you actually start the program, however, it may be that the schools recommend you the MBA instead of a MIM. Check the difference here.

In my interview, the interviewers asked me whether I had explored the PhD courses at HEC and encouraged/asked why don't I pursue a phd there? (Perhaps it was because they felt that I had a research based profile) Now, this was totally unexpected for me. Can you suggest from your experience if the outcome of the interview will be unfavorable, considering their insistence for a phd? Also, is an MiM the right thing to do if one aspires to do a phd in management? (just asking out of curiosity). Also, roughly what percentage weightage is given to the interview?

thank you for your post. The question in your interview is indeed surprising. I wouldn't perceive this as negative, however. It just shows that they seem to have interest in you. Whether your answer is "Yes, I would be interested in them" or "No, I plan to stay in the business world", or whether you say "I wanted to do the MIM first and then decide about whether I pursue an academic or business career" - all of this should be fine.
"is an MiM the right thing to do if one aspires to do a phd in management?"In our Global MIM Survey 2013, we found that two thirds of all schools that offer both a MIM and a PhD, the MIM qualifies for the PhD. As for HECm I would just contact the PhD Department and ask - but I am sure that the MIM indeed qualifies for it.
"Also, roughly what percentage weightage is given to the interview?"Roughly 20 percent.
