Worked Part Time for two years after graduation.  [#permalink]

So, I completed my graduation in 2016. Since then I have worked part-time in my family owned business so that I can study for the CFA exams.
I cleared Level 3 this June.

I sat for GMAT on October 7th and got a 720( Q50, V38, IR 4).

I want to know whether I should pursue M.Sc(1-year course) or MBA considering my lack of full-time work experience.

Background: Commerce Student. 74% in graduation.

An MsC is probably a better option since b-schools do like to see full time work experience (and place more priority on that than on the CFA). That said, if you can say you plan to return to your family biz post-MBA (and if you can make a strong case for how vital the CFA is to your post-MBA goals, to justify the time you spent on it) then I'd give some b-schools a shot. B-schools like to see family biz applicants, particularly if you plan to return following the degree. When you're at a family biz you usually have had the chance to have more impact/responsibility than the average person at a larger co. Likewise, when you plan to return b-schools are happy for two reasons: guaranteed employment means good things for their employment stats, and when you are returning to a family business you are likely going to be in a role where you can have big impact, and b-schools like alumni who go on to have big impact. A lot of this will also depend on what you've done for the family biz so far & what you can show on your resume -- even if it's been part time, if you've been able to drive results they will be more forgiving. Hope that helps! You've got a unique situation so if you'd like to talk through it in more detail please feel free to reach out to Claudia at claudia@admissionado.com and she can set you up with a free consultation with one of our MBA Consultants!
