Do i meet an MBA profile?


Hello Everyone,
I've been trying to decide whether to apply for an MBA or a MSc Finance.
I talked to an Admission Consultant specialized in Latin applicants and she encouraged me to decide in favour of an MBA.
However i do not feel confident about my profile and would love to have some advise.

-Colombian
-24 Years Old
-Undergrad in Industrial Engineering (Top Uni of my country) 3.75/5
-Ongoing Specialty in Statistics- 4.7/5
-1.5 Years working with my own start-up in the oil palm sector.
-also some consulting work with my family business, oil palm sector too.
-I developed my start-up business plan during my dissertation (that would add roughly another year of experience?)
-Toefl 111
-Gmat 660 q45 v36 (i could retake it if convinient)

-extra curriculars? (don't know if that is relevant)
-I was at the rugby team of my univeristy for 2 years.
-I won a national award as the best graduate national exam.

now i'll try to aim to top tier or maybe second tier business schools, am i good enough?

Although there's no hard line, you'll typically want at least 4-5 years of post-graduate work experience to apply for an MBA (three years of experience with strong growth at a minimum.)

The other consideration is what you are looking to do after graduation. An MSc in Finance would pretty much lock you into a finance career, whereas an MBA would give you many more options.

An alternative to an MSc in Finance for younger applicants would be a Master in Management program. (if you're looking for a broader range of career options after graduation(.
