Following things come to mind after reading your post:
- It is not clear as to what you have in mind here. You mentioned you want to explore the larger banking space. By this, I assume you mean areas such as M&A, Equity Research, Debt Syndication, etc etc? But on other hand, you also mention strategy and sales? These are two pretty different things. A CFA could be useful in the former, not necessarily in the latter pursuit.
- There are very few pure strategy positions in banks/bfsi. And they tend to hire people either from top strategy consulting firms or people with domain experience - rarely fresh out of campus. So you may want to rethink on that front
- The school list you have there is an aggressive one. Since you've not written the score, I am assuming you are yet to take your GMAT. As a first step, it is advisable to first fully understand the various roles/functions you have mentioned. Then decide which of these is your primary bet - something that appeals most to you. Only then should you start selecting the schools and creating your application strategy.
