Your profile suits the requirements and class profile of NUS, NTU and HKUST but your goals dont match with what these schools can offer. These 3 schools and Singapore and HongKong are finance oriented and hence expecting jobs in IT consulting from these will be tough.
Actually very few schools have companies which come for proper IT consulting. Either be open to General Management or Strategy Consulting ( what McKinsey, BCG etc do) or target schools such as ISB and few mid rank schools known for technology in US - Carlson, Texas Mccombs, Kelley. Top school in US which are good for Technology roles - Sloan, Tepper and Haas will require a better GMAT score.
Hope this helps.
