Stacy Blackman’s Best of 2011

Can you believe 2011 is almost over? With the New Year upon us, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on the most popular and useful posts we’ve covered on this blog throughout the past year. Some originally appeared on my U.S. News MBA Admissions blog, which I began writing last January, while others stemmed from my Tuesday Tips video series and the client case studies known as SBC Scoop, which also launched in 2011.

My goal with this blog has always been to bring b-school applicants the latest news from the schools, insightful application and essay tips, and to explore major trends affecting the future of management education. So, without further ado, here are some of the top posts from the past 12 months:

Thank you so much for making the Stacy Blackman Blog a top destination for your b-school research. I hope this resource continues to serve you well as you embark on what is definitely a life-changing, career-boosting journey.

Have a wonderful holiday, and I’ll see you back here in 2012!
