Re: How important are university grades?

I understand that it's competitive, but in my opinion just the GPA doesn't say much. Let's say between 2 candidates, one has a GPA of 5.3 the other has 5.1, while having 1 extra year of work experience. Would companies really value the 5.3GPA more? Also some degrees are harder to complete than others, so the same GPA in 2 different degrees is not equal to each other.
No. Very few companies are going to differentiate based on a .2 GPA difference. Some companies may have cut-offs, but that's different from your example.

HSG has a very good career services group. I recommend speaking with them directly.
