You're probably going to find my response frustrating so I apologize in advance for that. Anyone who responds to this could probably rattle off the usual suspects with ease. Apply to Kellogg, or Booth, or Columbia, or Stern, etc. However, the issue with this approach is that it falls short on two key components.
For one, I don't have a thorough understanding of what your work experience actually was. Analyst is rather vague. Also, I don't know your extracurricular profile. Without a better understanding of these two things, it would be hard to gauge what schools you should apply to or where you would be stretching versus having a solid chance.
Secondly, I don't know your goal + why MBA story. Once again, an analyst focused on gen mgmt isn't very descriptive. Selecting schools is about more than just rankings and geography. It's about fit. It's about goal enablement. It's about culture. It's about placement. So knowing the entire story is necessary before you start short listing programs.
We get a lot of clients who come to us and say, "I want to apply to H/S/W" or "I want to go to the west coast". However, as we get into the gritty details we more often than not find a series of intricacies that really cause them to reflect on what's important to them. The schools they came to us with aren't always the ones they walk away with.
I'm sorry I gave you such a frustrating answer but I really wouldn't have done you much justice by saying a few well known names and sending you along your way.
It might help you to sign up for a consultation with an admissions firm. It doesn't have to be us but it would help you get to know your own profile a little better, understand where you're trying to go, and how best to get there.
I'm happy to help if I can,
