Grad school for future CTOs

I have the distinct pleasure of being a mentor in Columbia University's Masters of IT program in continuing education (other posts mentioning Columbia program - http://newyorkcto.blogspot.com/search?q=columbia). My second student just graduated, and I am about to receive my third student in the coming school year. I find it be extremely satisfying to teach a student how to prepare a technology business case, and at the same time find myself reflecting on my own management style, something I am constantly learning and tweaking.

I can't think of a better way for a future CTO or CIO to prepare for the job, and I've given this advice to aspiring CTOs. Check out this recent article on the program: -http://www.informationweek.com/news/management/interviews/showArticle.jh

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
