I image you mean you failed 25 undergraduate exams. Have you obtained your degree? If not, then you might want to look at a programme to complete a bachelor's degree like this https://www.inseec.education/bachelor-international-trade/

Pradeep,

25 backlogs are GMAT of 530, IELTS 6 suggests that your are an average student (academically speaking) at best. Moreover, your command of English is not adequate.

You may want to reconsider if higher education is your passion or not. If you want to pursue it anyways, then think about your career goals. Schools or course selection will depend on your career goals.

As per backlogs, what matters is how does it show on your transcript? Does it show that you failed and later cleared those subjects with good grades? Or does your transcript not show backlogs?

In any case, you'll have to be realistic in managing your expectations.

Ayon,

My transcripts shows that i had failed in 25 subjects and then I cleared that. I cleared them in an average score.
My idea is to do MBA in HR. After my masters I will search a job that suits my profile, if not I will come back and I will be a part of my father's business.

I think when Ayon was talking about thinking about your career goals - he meant having concrete plans for what you would do after graduation. Thinking about something that fits your profile is great, but, you should be clearer: "I want to transition into consulting," or "I want to work in a corporate retailing operation in the US." If you have these kinds of clear career goals, you can make a better informed decision about where you should do your MBA (or if you should do one at all.)

Pradeep,

As Maury said. You'll need to have concrete career goals. Unlike India US doesn't provide a "specialized" MBA in HR. The 1st year of your MBA will be General MBA, 2nd year will allow you to take electives to focus in certain areas.

Job search in US is getting increasingly difficult, without special skills (Analytics or Technical) why would a US firm hire you over equally qualified citizen? Transitioning into Marketing, and HR remains tough for International students. It would help if you have prior experience in HR, but if you are a career switcher then without the brand tag of a top 20 school if would be extremely tough to convince a recruiter to hire you and sponsor your work visa.

Since your transcript show your 25 backlog, it would signal to admissions committee that you were not a good student since you flunked in 45% of your subjects (Assuming 8 semester - 4 year program and 7 subject per semester). Now you might be facing some hardships that affected your grades - and if that was the case you'd need to mention those in your optional essays. For a lower GPA, you'd need a higher GMAT score to offset - and to signal AdCom that you are capable of handling the academic workload of a US MBA program.

This would leave you applying to schools outside Top 75 (US News). Look at programs like Williamette but don't expect miracles happening during job search. You'd be pretty much on your own.

I'd rather suggest that you get some work experience and maturity before you decide to pursue higher education. Other than the big names - Case Western Reserve University is known for HR (at least their PhD program is), but it's in Cleveland and their MBA program jumped off the ranking cliff few years back.
