Tahe a look at GMAT Tiers - strong schools for your GMAT www.find-mba.com/board/27082

I think the EDHEC family business MBA could be a good option for you. I think they are launching it next year as a full-time option, alongside their existing family business executive MBA. http://www.edhec-family-business.com/programmes-for-family-business/mba-programs/mba-programs-for-family-businesses-165484.kjsp

A good gmat score helps, and good English too.

From Oxford's website:

If you were not awarded a minimum of 2.1 you may still be considered provided you have a very strong employment record demonstrating a high degree of responsibility.


Sounds like a lower GPA is not a dealbreaker, but they are going to want to see evidence of leadership skills and responsibilities. Furthermore, outscoring a school's average GMAT is a good way to demonstrate that you are capable of academic studies. Oxford's average GMAT tends to be in the 690 range so I would re-take and aim for 740ish.
