Transfer College list for a non-traditional applicant from IU Kelley

Hi, I'm currently a freshman at IU Kelley and I'm thinking about transfer to a better school.

I think I might end up with somewhere around 3.9 -3.97 GPA at the end even though I don't have a GPA yet. My concern is that I might not be able to transfer my business credits if I transfer to a different school. For example, if I transfer to somewhere that does not have a business major undergrad, would I be able to transfer my business class credits? ex)Columbia, northwestern, Vanderbilt, etc.

Or some business schools don't want us to take business classes at a different college. For example, Emory states that "GBS prefers students complete the majority of their business coursework here at Emory, so students with a number of business classes from another institution are not good transfer candidates." 

So, I was wondering if you could help me with the list of schools I should consider given the difficulty of getting in as a transfer and the possibility of successfully transferring all my credits.

What is a realistic list of better schools to transfer?

But, I'm not applying right now. I'll complete my military service in my home country and apply transfer. So, by the time I apply, I'll be a non-traditional applicant with some military experience and leadership roles in it. I had 1490 SAT and something around 4.2-4.3 weighted HS GPA. I'm involved in around 5 clubs with some leadership positions at Kelley. I received some scholarship and I'm in honors college at IU. I also had a nonprofit and some internships from high school. When I applied colleges last year, I got waitlisted from Ross and Georgetown, rejected from stern, duke, and all ivies except Princeton and Columbia, and accepted to Northeastern.
