I have a question related to work ex.
The thing is I have a work experience of 5 yrs as of now in IT field.
But when I was around 13 years of age I ran my fathers business, as I was the only person who could run the business along with my mother after my father expired. And I was involved in business for around 3 years.
Now my question is, when the MBA application asks for the work experience, can I include this experience of 3 years as well (Making my total experience as 8 yrs as of now) (Though I don't have any written proof for it, only if school does a background investigation they can get to know that I was in business for 3 years).
When asked about work experience, say you have 5 years. Saying 8 years will just muddy the waters. But in an essay you may want to write about the challenge of running the family business at the age of 13.
