Exam Strategist Ranks SBC #1 MBA Consulting Firm for 2023-2024

Stacy Blackman Consulting is proud to be ranked the #1 MBA admissions consulting firm for 2023-2024 by Exam Strategist.  As readers well know, competition is fierce at top-tier business schools worldwide. Every year, qualified candidates don’t make it to the interview stage simply because they haven’t maximized every facet of their MBA application. The best way to avoid that fate is to engage with the admissions consulting services offered by Stacy Blackman Consulting (SBC).

Exam Strategist

“In our opinion, Stacy Blackman Consulting offers the best all-inclusive admissions packages available,” Exam Strategist reports.

“After thoroughly evaluating the who, what, how, and why that form your story, your primary consultant, along with the support of the full team, gets to work implementing your personal strategy across all points of contact with your target programs. They make sure that every element of your candidacy, from informal communications to essays and recommendations, will help you stand out from the thousands of other applicants in a positive way.”

The Benefits of Working with SBC

Exam Strategist has singled out Stacy Blackman Consulting for several reasons, including:

  • We’re the only firm with a complete panel of former MBA admissions officers from all the top programs.
  • We offer the best all-inclusive admissions packages available.
  • Our consultants are available during business hours, as well as on evenings and weekends, to work around clients’ hectic schedules.
  • There are no limits on the number of reviews or rounds of edits for every component of your application.
  • Clients can access the entire SBC team for an “extra eyes” review from a relevant specialist.
  • SBC’s All-In package includes our custom application “Flight Test” process. Clients submit a full set of application materials to a former Admissions Committee member of the SBC team, who evaluates the application in that school’s respective AdCom style.
  • Stacy Blackman provides a custom video interview platform to help clients evaluate and refine their techniques. Afterward, they receive comprehensive feedback from an MBA interview specialist.
  • SBC offers mock interviews following the interview styles of clients’ target business schools. Harvard, Stanford and Wharton each have a unique interview format and we have specialists for each type. This includes the ability to participate in a mock Team-Based Discussion for the Wharton School.

Here’s a snapshot of the caliber of talent on the SBC consulting team:

In fact, about 20-25% of SBC clients receive scholarship packages ranging between $10,000 to full-ride offers valued at $200,000.
