Your candidacy looks very strong, I think you will be successful at your target schools (as listed). However, the AdCom is going to want to know why you need an MBA if you already have a Masters in Finance? You are going to have to make a compelling distinction for Why and MBA? and, Why Now? For instance at Tuck, where I attended, the focus is on General Management, so you would use that angle to express that to reach your career goals you have learned that you will need a well rounded general management education. As well, stay focus on one distinct post-MBA career goal, not the two you outlined.

In your application you need to emphasize Why You? What makes you the candidate that they want to admit, that will add value and a unique perspective the classroom, and make you a compelling post-graduation ambassador for the school? You outlined some great qualities in your post, so really drill into these and tie together a compelling picture of what differentiates you from the other applicants.

Don't forget to also focus on getting excellent recommendations. Start now to figure out who will write you the most glowing reference.

Best of luck!

This is a really good profile. Your international work experience and dual nationality will be memorable and in the US if you are 50% black, then for application purposes, you are black and should indicate yourself as such. This will be a huge advantage because there are nowhere near the number of black applicants to US schools as they would like. I would say not even Wharton is a reach so long as you have a well positioned application that ties in your vision with your experience and why b-school, etc.
