Mr. Young Family Business Leader

About Me:

I am a Business undergrad who joined the family business right out of college. Growing up, I’ve had numerous opportunities to understand the business supply chain operations in general. This helped me a lot during college and I still feel that gives me an upper hand over my peers. I am currently also working on two tech startups that I cofounded.

My work experience relative to other candidates certainly makes me anxious about considering an MBA in the first place. It makes me wonder if I should try and gain more relevant work experience out of the family business before applying for an MBA. A low GPA (although continually improved between semesters) is another factor that I feel could decrease my chances.
