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 European programs. No other firm has this complete talent. 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 school, has graduated from 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+ applicants. This reflects the company’s mission to further diversity in the MBA applicant pool. No other established MBA admissions firm has a team that is as diverse.

OUR KNOWLEDGE

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, best practices, unusual dilemmas, successful essay strategies, and interview standards. 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.

As one SBC client explained, “What really sets the SBC team apart, however, is the breadth and depth of knowledge; any time that my consultant and I were wondering how to approach a school’s application better, there were numerous former admissions officers from those schools that we could draw on.” Another client said, “I appreciated how the team uses all their former AdCom members to make sure you feel like you’ve put your best foot forward in the application process.”

OUR MODEL

The SBC System™ has eight core modules and is the most robust of all firms.

SBC offers unlimited time with a carefully selected primary consultant, who will be dedicated to understanding you authentically, creating a winning strategy, and defining your unique story for each school. Your primary consultant will be your creative and strategic guide, helping you to create materials that are provocative, informative, school-specific and ultimately effective in resonating with each of your target MBA programs.

Your primary consultant will engage in multiple iterations of brainstorming, development, outlining, and applied review across all MBA application touchpoints—resume, online application form, recommender letters, essays, short answers and more –to eliminate blindspots and optimize every detail so that your story shines and reflects deep knowledge of each of the MBA programs.

SBC also believes in checks and balances, as it has the Flight Test™ which is a complete review by a former AdCom. 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 THE VAULT, SBC’s Resource Center with over two decades of sample essays, recommendations, resumes, school overviews, interview transcripts and more. A recent client shared, “The large SBC database was priceless, especially when understanding the differences between schools and when preparing for interviews.”

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.

Our matchmaking process includes criteria such as track record with target schools, proficiency with your career path, demographics, interests and character qualities, and the consultant’s availability at the time you’re interested in engaging. You’ll be matched with a primary consultant who believes in your candidacy and who is truly excited to work with you. Some of our consultants have a sweet spot for non-traditional applicants while others excel with engineers. Just like you, our consultants’ backgrounds and perspectives are varied.

SBC offers a limited number of complimentary phone or email-based consultations weekly for inquiries who have been pre-screened by our tenured team.

The SBC All-In Service

A FORMER HBS ADMISSIONS OFFICER ON OUR SBC TEAM SHARED THAT MBA ADMISSIONS LOVE A GREAT STORY AND CLARIFIED:

“I believe it’s true that all people, and therefore all MBA admissions boards, love a great story. It’s a way to bring life to your application and show the realness of who you are during what can be a dry process.”

The majority of our clients select our All-In package because they recognize that the competitive admissions process requires an application set that is stellar and strategic on all levels. SBC’s  “All-In” engagement includes:

  • Personal Assessment & Critical Reflection. Your primary consultant will work to understand you through deeply-probing questions that reveal your authentic dimensions.

  • Your consultant will dig into the who, what, how and why that forms your story through our 360° Personal Orbit™. You will explore the key MBA acceptance triggers that will be central to crafting your personal story.

  • We will evaluate your school preferences and criteria and develop a school list according to reach, reasonable, or safer program choices that ensures you apply to programs that you’ll love attending.

  • We will cover career path guidance–selecting and optimizing your career goals to ensure they are ambitious, purposeful, and attainable– and also recommendation letter(s) guidance to support your story and reinforce your aptitude and potential.

  • You will receive a complete MBA Application Strategy written summary including your value proposition and career path evaluation, as well as deliverables and tasks with an Attack Plan & Timeline.

  • One AdCom Flight Test™ as described by a recent client: “After I had gotten the applications to a near-finished state, we shared my application with my flight tester, who was a former MBA admissions officer, to offer a fresh perspective of my entire package. This review was unique and insightful because the reviewer reviews the file in the same way as an admissions officer. The Flight Test ™ provides insight into how the application stands up under the realistic, unbiased scrutiny of an AdCom member versus intensely in the details as your admission’s consultant.”

  • Up to three formats of interview coaching. Post-application consultation to work through issues such as interviews, waitlist and deferral strategy and school selection.

Hourly First Services

Start with 2-3 hours for the initial strategy work a la carte to test the waters, and you can then roll up into the purchase of an All-In package.

  • Professional, Helpful, & A Dedicated Person. The Best Investment!!!
    2 months ago
    I want to share my experience working with SBC and their exceptional consulting service. From the beginning, they matched me with a consultant, Alex, who was perfectly suited to my needs for MBA application guidance. Alex's deep knowledge and expertise significantly enhanced my application process. His ability to tailor essays for various universities was nothing short of miraculous, transforming my initial drafts into compelling narratives that truly stood out. Under his guidance, I crafted outstanding essays. Beyond being a professional expert, Alex was a remarkable person to work with. His approachable and supportive manner made a typically stressful period much more manageable. He was involved in every step of the process, from refining essays to preparing for interviews and even negotiating offers. With Alex’s guidance, I achieved what ...

  • Simply Incredible, There's No One Better!!! Wharton + Booth Acceptances
    2 months ago
    The attention to detail was simply unmatched. Alex was able to extract value out of nearly every individual sentence for every essay. He was critical not only in helping to tell my own story, but also in meticulously crafting it for each individual school, along with incredible prep for each interview. Words can't possibly do justice to how helpful Alex was for the admissions process. I am an older candidate with a previous career as a physician and startup founder, and having Alex's guidance was the single most important part of my MBA process. Despite how many applications I've done before (college, medical school, residency, grant writing, etc.), Alex brought an entirely new perspective and a mastery of personal storytelling that I had never encountered. ...

  • Highly Recommend: Knowledgeable & Responsive
    2 months ago
    I used interview package for my Stanford MSx program application. Stacy Blackman matched me with Alex. I had a mock interview with Alex and also sent him a recorded interview for comments. For the mock interview, Alex wrote down my responses with comments, which is really helpful for me to review my responses and polish them later. He was very encouraging and gave me a lot of useful advice which made my practice experience much more enjoyable. Alex was also responsive in replying my emails with questions on how to answer certain interview questions. He helped me build my confidence which I think played a critical role in nailing my interview later.

  • Helpful, Honest, & Balanced Perspective
    3 months ago
    I was referred to Stacy Blackman by my mentor at work. In my initial consultation, I was told that 5 of out 6 programs I was interested in would be a stretch for me. I signed up for the 2-school package for HBS and Stanford GSB and selected Alex Liff as my consultant. Having been offered admissions to 4 out of the 6 programs, including HBS, I am very satisfied with the results. The first and most valuable help that Alex provided was to read through my 21-page 360 assessment and work with me to identify and strategize on how to tell my story. Having come from a non-traditional background and not had the strongest academic credentials, I believe this proved to be critical to giving ...

    Alex was a very helpful consultant. I received an admit at one of my top choice schools (Duke), which might not have happened without his help. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and decisive. I believe he was most helpful to me in helping me craft my MBA story and determining which schools would be a good fit. Early on my MBA journey, I didn’t have a lot of answers. He helped point me in the right direction. Alex listened to my story and helped tie it into a compelling narrative that was ready for applications and interviews. He was also helpful in providing guidance to my recommenders and prepping me for interviews. He shared helpful feedback notes on some of my first few essays. His responsivness ...

    Alex was my primary partner in every step of the MBA admissions process and helped me secure MIT Sloan Fellows ’25 admit. Krithika from CareerLabs helped me identify MIT Sloan Fellows MBA program as a good fit for mid-career professionals seeking immersive MBA experience. My advice for MBA aspirants: If you can afford it, then hire consultants - definitely worth the investment. From day one Alex was very patient and a calming influence throughout this nerve-racking admissions process. Alex’s guidance every step of the process was instrumental in my securing an MBA spot at my choice program. After an in-depth discussion, he developed the strategy for our approach. He helped me fine tune my essays and different aspects of my application. Alex’s technology experience was pivotal ...

  • Putting You First Always
    5 months ago
    I had a tight round 1 deadline for a number of schools. Alex was available round the clock to help. I don’t think I would have made the essays I did without him that helped me receive admission into a number of m7 programs. He pushed me to produce essays I wouldn’t have been able to produce on my own-essays well outside my comfort zone. As importantly, he was always available if I had a nagging concern in relation to any aspect of my application and would go out of his way to ensure alleviate my concern. Thanks again for everything Alex!

  • It's Great Having Alex On Your Team
    1 year ago
    Alex has been a great resource during applications. I was hesitant to use consulting assistance due to the high cost, but I think that it was worth it for keeping me on track and explaining the process. Alex is very responsive and will read your essays well into the night, even at crunch time, which I appreciated. He's a talented writer and helps bring out the best content and cut fluff. Being budget-conscious, my overall process was: take notes from Adam Markus blog, 1 hour with Alex on essay topics and strategy, then writing and proofreading with 2 trusted friends, then 2-3 hours of back and forth proofreading with Alex, and finally 1 hour of miscellaneous work like resume, etc. I found that the overall ...

    I feel so lucky to have paired with Alex. Time and my low GMAT score were significant detriments, but Alex made it work since I got accepted to Kellogg! He is highly knowledgeable and helped me curate an application that overcame my low GMAT and highlighted my leadership skills and international experience. Alex was motivating and answered all my burning questions throughout the excruciatingly stressful process. He is also a phenomenal editor who helped me polish my essays. I truly believe he was instrumental in helping me overcome my low GMAT and tailoring a story to showcase that I'm more than just my GMAT score. My sincerest gratitude to Alex!

    As a nontraditional applicant to business school (physician looking to make a career pivot), I was coming into the process with some knowledge, but knowing I may need someone with more expertise to help me stand out. I was fortunate to be paired with Alex, who went above and beyond to ensure my success. From the outset, Alex's attentiveness and straight-shooting approach were invaluable in helping me secure admission to some of the top business schools in the country, including Kellogg, Ross, McCombs, and Kenan-Flagler. His in-depth knowledge of the application process and his ability to communicate effectively made me feel confident and well-prepared every step of the way. He was able to filter things down on a granular level to highlight my strengths and background. ...

After evaluating multiple consulting groups online, I came to the SBC team in January for an initial MBA Candidacy assessment. I felt that their team offered the most robust resources, experienced consultants, and a breadth of professional backgrounds/experiences. Given that I was early in the process (applying for R1 that September), Esther provided a succinct, realistic evaluation of my profile/stats and provided some suggestions of where I could work to improve my profile in the coming months to strengthen my candidacy for the top programs that I was targeting.

  • All-In Consulting Package
    2 years ago
    I bought an all-in consulting package from SBC to apply to a Sloan Fellows type of program (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sloan_Fellows). Alex was my main partner in choosing the right strategy for mid-career professionals and executing it for my applications. Thanks to Alex, I was able to submit three applications in a very short time (about a month) and was admitted to 2 out of 3 programs. Although we had an 11-hour time difference, we were able to perfectly and efficiently interact online like in a ping pong game - one full iteration every day and the reply the next morning; thus keeping our progress at a constant fast pace. I have chosen MIT SFMBA 2024 program and would like to strongly recommend Alex to mid-career candidates.

    Received an admissions offer from GSB/HBS, as well as MIT. Alex was fantastic in helping me navigate the entire process. I can't thank him enough. It's very difficult to know where to begin when starting the MBA application process. Alex was great at helping me figure out how to weave together my (very) non-traditional experiences and develop a compelling narrative. Alex spent a significant amount of 1-on-1 time helping me with my applications, and preparing me to succeed in a flight test with Caryn (a former MBA admissions officer). Alex is highly dedicated. He answered all my (sometimes anxiety-driven) questions on calls, and even took the time to set up an additional reviewer, Christine, to provide some additional insights and feedback for my final GSB essay. ...

    Wharton and Kellogg admit. I had a fantastic time working with Alex. Not being too familiar with the ins and outs of MBA applications, Alex was super helpful in providing the initial guidance I needed to put together competitive packages for my top schools. Throughout the process, he provided very thoughtful and actionable feedback that truly helped me get my applications to where they needed to be. Alex was extremely responsive, flexible, and timely with his feedback. It was a pleasure working with Alex and the SBC team, and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for a no-bullshit, top-tier consultant.

    Alex is the best! I still cannot believe I got an admit to the Stanford MSx program. Without Alex, I do not think I would have gotten there. From the beginning, he went through my background, experiences, and stories and advised me on how to be strategic. I also got Alex's help with reviewing my recommendation letter and even my recommender spoke highly of Alex. He did many decent editing on my essays and my recommendation letter. When I received the interview, Alex also helped me with mock interview prep and gave me detailed feedback. He is very patient and he knows what he is doing! I would highly recommend Alex and SBC!!

Alex was collaborative in brainstorming sessions and provided objective and necessary feedback, continuing the discussion until we both felt confident. Alex's feedback on essay drafts was also very constructive. again, necessary in order to ensure an encompassing message was being told within the character limits.

My experience with SBC started with Sarah who demonstrated deep insights into the admission process. She was also able to point out a few areas that I need to work on in our very first meeting. Based on my personal background and target schools, she recommended Alex. In addition to being professional on application, Alex is a strategic, organized, and super responsive mentor.

He's also extremely familiar with how the AdCom of each school thinks and what they're looking for, which helped me to uniquely tailor my essays for each school. He was a great sounding board for ideas as I was starting to write my essays, and helped tremendously as I sharpened and refined the final product.

    After interviewing multiple different consultants as I started my MBA process, I was underwhelmed at what I had found. Then I met Alex. Alex was kind, attentive, eloquent, and immediately got to work in our intro call at pulling the important parts out of my story. In a few short meetings, I had done more in terms of forming my story than I could have ever done alone. As applications started, Alex was with me (and I mean really with me) through every step of the way. When I got interviews at both Stanford and Harvard, he organized separate mock interviews for each even though he was not required. I'll be honest, applying to an MBA program is brutally hard and your consultant won't do ...

SBC demonstrated that from the beginning to me. Just speaking with Sarah for thirty minutes, she was able to provide insights and bring her expertise to bear on my application. SBC also stood out from other firms in that they cater to candidates coming in from every stage of the application process.

I decided to apply to an unusually wide range (~10) of schools within a few weeks of the R1 deadlines.

Alex was very understanding and helped me develop a plan that fit within my budget and timeline.

He knows the Admissions process thoroughly and helped me develop a narrative around my personal and professional life to highlight all of my unique attributes. He is ...

    I had initially reached out to Alex for essay support and was pleased to find that he was an attentive, knowledgable consultant. I came to him with what I felt were relatively solid drafts, and he helped me hone in on my strongest "key points." He gave me quite a bit of advice about how to craft my essays with respect to word limits, as well as information on each school's general admissions process. Additionally, he followed up with me afterward and offered very earnest and sincere congratulations when he found out I had been accepted to every program I had applied to.

    Going into the MBA application process, I was struggling to synthesize the different experiences of my professional and personal life into a cohesive and natural story. Alex stepped in and was extremely helpful in helping me build my story. We went through an exhaustive list of experiences and brainstormed on whether each experience deserved some essay "real estate". More importantly, Alex helped me uncover some experiences that I originally thought were unimportant, that turned out to be a powerful, core element of my essay story. Alex also helped me understand how admission officers think, which in turn helped me tailor the language of my essays and application for an admission officer reader, and ensure that I didn't go on irrelevant tangents. Overall, I was very satisfied with ...
