I believe your goals are in finance. You certainly have a strong education and list of academic credentials. The missing ingredient is experience. Your teaching experience does not demonstrate the leadership, impact, and risk-taking you need for the MBA applications. I wonder if you could pursue an internship or entry-level role in finance to gain some of that necessary experience? As far as I can see, that is the only weakness in your application. The one issue that I will caution you about is the need for convincing reasons why you need the MBA education - not just the MBA pedigree.
