DU Chancellor Emeritus Daniel Ritchie.

DU Chancellor Emeritus Daniel Ritchie.

Today, I was honored to briefly meet the legendary Daniel Ritchie.  I told him that I had attended DU for my undergraduate degree and that I was going to start my MBA program in the fall.  He responded, “I think an MBA is a good investment.”

Looking at the price tag of an MBA degree is scary, but Mr. Ritchie’s reassuring statement confirmed my belief that a Daniels education is more than worth the cost.  His words also reminded me of a Wall Street Journal article I had read the previous week, entitled “Job Market Heats Up for MBA Graduates (click here to read the article).”

Mr. Ritchie may never know how much his words meant to me, but I am tremendously grateful for his vote of confidence in the power of the Daniels MBA.  I am certain that Daniels will give me the tools I need to prove Mr. Ritchie correct.
