I haven’t yet researched a lot but currently I am considering the following MBA programs: Spain: IE Business School, ESADE Business School UK: London Business School, Oxford Said Business School, Cambridge Judge Business School, Manchester Business School) USA: HAAS UC Berkley, University of Pennsylvania: Wharton
Can you please also advise what other universities I should consider? Thank you in advance.
If you're interested in working in the US, focus on US schools. If you're interested in working in Europe, focus on Euro schools. You're going to have to make that choice -- you can't really count on having the option of both. You should go into the process with a *strong* preference for one or the other, and that should dictate which schools you should focus on.
That's the research you need to do, which is where you actually want to be, and what you want to do in terms of jobs post-MBA.

All the schools you listed are in range except for Wharton (which will be a stretch).
As for your undergrad and extracurriculars - there's nothing you can do about that, as it's in the past, so worrying about it isn't really going to help you put together a stronger application (if anything, worrying about it will only make you come across as more defensive and insecure about it, thus drawing way more unneeded attention to it). It is what it is. Focus on your strengths, what you can bring to the table, rather than worrying about what you can't do anything about.
