2. I am not a first generation entrepreneur. Though I have worked like an entrepreneur ( starting a business unit from scratch, managing entire operations of the unit) i have been an employee in the business. In this case, will my experience be considered an entrepreneurial experience or not? How important or useful is an entrepreneurial experience?
3. With my profile, is it logical to apply to wharton or Stanford?
4. I wish to work for a management consultancy, as a person specializing in operations and manufacturing management. Shoudl I apply to colleges which are known for operations management or to those known for general management and strategy? Specifically, Purdue-krannert is highly ranked for operations.

You can demonstrate entrepreneurial skills in any job, be it a family business or a large corporate. It does not matter that you are not a first generation entrepreneur, the work that you have done sounds impressive on its own. And it does spell entrepreneurial attributes.

Infact being a regular employee in your family business could help in finding recommenders who will be seen as giving unbiased views about you.

if you can impress them, then yes! These are tough to crack for everybody.

You should be applying to a mix of b-schools depending upon your specialization interest and your post MBA career goals. Purdue Krannert is a very well known program and you must apply there if it meets your expectations.
