Mentoring: What an MBA can do for you (Note: This is a play on words. The columnist can either list 5-10 leadership skills an MBA student can or should learn from their MBA experience or the columnist can profile a current or former MBA student they mentored to highlight the value of that experience in their own development and what they learned from the MBA)
Lessons Learned: highlights personal leadership traits, skills, self-mastery skills that the executive learned in his or her career, how, and the connection between their college experience and that lesson learned. May also suggest books to read or other development mechanisms.
