Dear Mr. Johnson,
My nane is Nicholas Wong, and I am a JD-MBA student a Cornells Samuel Curtis Graduate School of Management and Cornell Law. Your family has served as a faithful patron of our school for 3 generations, and Cornellians instinctively look towards you and your family for guidance.
My MBA group has been assigned a major project, in which we must attempt to reach out to an outstanding leader and conduct an interview with him / her to understand what it truly takes to become a leader. We cant think of a more appropriate subject to interview, based on your past leadership experience. Nothing would give us greater pleasure to sit down and speak with you for a few minutes to learn how you became the sucessful person you are.
We understand that youre exceedingly busy, and would be willing to accommodate our schedules to whenever it is most convenient for for you.
All the best,
