You seem like a good fit for all three of these programs. Oxford seems like the best fit to me because they do tend to be a bit older than students at Yale and Kellogg (I estimate you are 29 now and that is Oxford's average matriculation age, compared with Yale and Kellogg's 28) and the GMAT average at Oxford is a bit lower (around 690 compared with the 715-720 range at Kellogg and Yale. As a general rule, I find sales roles are less persuasive in application essays than examples of business development and managing across departments.
