B-Schooled Podcast Episode 52: Secrets of Dual HBS/GSB Admits, Part 1 of 2

The MBA admissions process can often be brutal. The competition to get into highly ranked programs is especially cutthroat, which makes it all the more impressive when a candidate gains admission to not one, but two of the top programs in the world: Harvard Business School and Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Stacy Blackman Consulting studied the dual admits we worked with a few years ago, and then again this past year, in order to analyze their secrets to success as well as assess trends over time.

This episode focuses on the first four of the eight themes we discovered, and an upcoming episode will cover the final four themes.
