About SBC

Since 2001, Stacy Blackman Consulting clients have been admitted to every top business school worldwide, frequently with substantial merit scholarships. Stacy Blackman Consulting (SBC) delivers results, as shown through its record of the highest number of online reviews across multiple MBA admissions ranking and review sites.

OUR TEAM

SBC is the only consulting firm in the industry who has on our team a complete panel of former MBA Admissions Officers from the top US programs and top EU programs. No other firm has this complete talent with backgrounds as varied as yours. Overseen by the time-tested techniques that only come with our years of experience, each and every SBC admissions consultant is solely focused on you getting what you want: an acceptance to business school. 

75% of our MBA consultant team hails from the top seven US MBA programs as MBA graduates and/or former MBA Admissions Officers, including from Harvard and Stanford. The SBC team has MBA expertise at every top US and EU school, has graduated from the elite MBA programs and understands career paths in every industry, traditional and non-traditional.

Over 1/4 of SBC’s consultant panel is of minority background, and SBC has five consultants who identify as and specialize in LGBTQ+ candidacies. This reflects the company’s mission to further diversity in the MBA applicant pool.

OUR KNOWLEDGE

SBC’s reach, contacts, and connections converge to benefit our clients. We know what’s going on, and we know it first.  We have former Admissions Officers (AdCom) from every top MBA program who are informing us of the current internal program priorities. We have tremendous insight as to what is currently keeping the AdCom up at night and what values they are looking for from their current students.

OUR MODEL

SBC’s engagement model of a dedicated consultant with additional review by our AdCom Flight Test team is the most robust of all firms. SBC offers unlimited time with a carefully selected Primary Consultant, allowing for full accountability and dedication. A candidate’s identity and character is best captured with one consultant completely responsible for success. SBC also believes in checks and balances, as it has the Flight Test which is a complete review by a former Admissions Officer. This structured feedback from a former AdCom mimics a real AdCom review and helps to ensure that a candidate’s application is most compelling to the target audience. We also include free access to a database of successful essays and interview questions and online guides.

GIVING BACK

SBC recently launched national partnerships with two leading nonprofit organizations serving first-generation college students, people of color, and students from lower-income backgrounds. We are proud to support these organizations and their critically important work. Read more here.

GET STARTED WITH SBC

SBC deeply values mentorship within its client engagements and limits the number of clients for each consultant. We engage with clients only after evaluating candidacy nuances and deciding that we could be successful together.

SBC offers a limited number of complimentary phone or email-based consultations weekly for inquiries who have been pre-screened by our tenured team. Contact us today to request a free consultation with an SBC Principal.

 


Our Guiding Principles

CARING IS OUR MOST POWERFUL TOOL.

We truly care about our clients and our larger audience. That’s why we strive to deliver 10x in everything we do.

EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE.

We believe your weaknesses can be your strengths. We’ll show you how to make sense of your tangled and flawed background and develop a personal story that shines.

WE BUST ANXIETY AND OVERWHELM.

We’re on a mission to help you reach your most ambitious dreams and get in to business school. And we want you to enjoy the process along the way. We’re going to reduce your anxiety and take the stress out of the journey so you can think clearly and focus.

WE DON’T DO ANYTHING JUST “FOR THE MONEY.”

If we don’t think we can work with you, we won’t do it. It’s that simple.

WE BELIEVE IN YOU.

We know you’ve got a lot riding on the decision to go to business school and you put a lot of faith in us to help get you there. Your confidence means a lot and we don’t take it for granted. We believe you can get in. We believe in hard work and are willing to work hard with you.

We believe you have everything it takes to get into business school.

You just need SBC to show you how.
