4 different internships spread over 6 months from 1 month to 2 months each in different companies working in different sectors and positions , hence, obtaining a wide variety of practical knowledge.

career goals :
a human resources type of job profile will suit me best but i'd settle for anything that pays best and, in the process learn and understand the job . i do not know how to put this in a very amicable manner, if there is any. but my dream is to be an entrepreneur/philanthropist. i would like to know how to explain my low gpa during my under grad. an honest answer to that would be my disappointment with the course. it wasn't challenging and i let complacency get the better of me!
i am planning to apply for the Masters in Management 2012. i have short listed the following universities: hec, lbs, duke, lse, warwick, imperial, hult, city university, em lyon

Your numbers are good, but coming from India very "middle of the road", so you are gonna get in or not get in in my opinion based on how amazing, unique impassioned and interesting a profile you present in your essays, recommendations and interview. You need to do all that you can to get away from a "run of the mill" profile, and make yourself shine like a diamond to secure as many admits as possible.

Also, think long and hard about which goals you want to present to the Adcom.

Best to ya!
