Once again, the time is upon us to make new resolutions, push ourselves to learn and grow, and rededicate ourselves to our personal and professional goals. My goal with this blog has always been to bring MBA applicants the latest news from the top business schools, insightful application and essay tips, and to explore major trends affecting the future of management education (I’m looking at you, MOOCs!)

Before signing off, I’d like to share with you a quote by best-selling author and motivational speaker Denis Waitley that is absolutely perfect in the context of the MBA admissions process.

Thank you so much for making the Stacy Blackman Blog a top destination for your b-school research. Wishing all of you success, health, joy and continued growth and learning in 2015!
