From the information you’ve provided, I’d say that in the US, schools such as Kelley (at Indiana) and University of Maryland’s Robert E. Smith School of Business would be good targets for you – Kelly a reasonable reach, and Smith on-par. And NUS would also be a good target program.

Both your work and your extracurriculars look interesting and impressive. Be sure to portray them vividly in your essays. Best wishes!
