Mentoring Objectives & Scope

For the past two years, I have worked with international bridge MBA students, primarily from China. My objective has been to help them better understand the culture, constraints and concerns they can encounter as they journey toward receiving their degree and what they will do with this advanced diploma. It involves goal setting, communication, leadership skills and managing their knowledge in a positive fashion.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I have found it works best to meet at Seattle University after the student has a class.
