I am from India. I have MBA degree with 2.5 GPA and my high school and college grades also not good either. This is largely because of my disinterest in the subjects I studied rather than pursuing my passion that is social sciences. Now at 33 years I have 11 years of corporate experience post MBA primarily in Business Research and Advisory, I am determined to get a Masters/phd (MA in Political Sciences/multi disciplinary social sciences). Please advise how do I tackle this? What would some of the strategies to adopt with regard to my corporate work experience to compensate for my bad grades in gaining admission in to a good university in US?
