How are family businesses viewed by adcoms for B School?
So for background, I am going to start in IB next year but my family has a very diversified business (6+ divisions, roughly $500 MM+ in annual revenues) and my family has made it clear that it is expected for me to come into the business after 3 years of outside experience with the intention of taking over one day. It has always been an academic goal of mine to go to a top 10 business school for. (I already know H/S/W are out of the question as a straight, white male). I have really been wondering if working for the family business will disadvantage me as opposed to doing the standard 2+2 when it is time to apply for my MBA.
