I have appeared for GMAT and got 740. There are few doubts in my mind. I am really seeking for an informative answer. To start with, I am sharing certain details below.

Work experience - I have started working with my father in our business. We basically have a shop registered in India since 1989 where we provide photocopy, laminating, binding solutions and we also trade in office stationery goods. I am working here since 2012. Presently we have almost 3 million Indian rupees as our revenue figure.

Education - BCom honours with 1st class from University of Burdwan, India.Presently CFA LEVEL 3 candidate.

Query - Can I use the above mentioned work experience as a valid work experience to apply for MBA in global b-schools? And from where I need to get LORs? I think I can't get it from my father, who is my on job supervisor.

Hi,
Firstly, congratulations on the GMAT :)
CFA helps you too! For recommendations you’ll have to ask clients if possible or vendors. Family unfortunately won’t do.

Best of luck and certainly go ahead and apply!

Hi,
You can definitely apply in any b school in the world. There is no bar. Try to use your profile as your strength using stories of your ups and downs and justify using suitable instances.
Reccommendations can be obtained from your clients.

Agreed. Congrats on a great GMAT score. You can definitely show this as a valid work experience.

But for recommendations, you either need to get it from a Vendor, your wholesalers, your long standing clients.

I suggest reaching out to the admission team of colleges you want to apply to, and seek out this information.
