Daniels Business School Looking For Donors

(above) The Daniels College of Business is looking for 1,400 Donors

The good news is that the executive MBA program at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business again has been named one of the world’s top 100 Executive MBA programs in an annual ranking posted Monday by the Financial Times. DU’s Daniels is the only Colorado program on the list. It ranked No. 99.

The bad news is that Daniels ranked No. 95 last year. It was No. 85 in 2009 and No. 90 in 2008.

Why the drop off? One reason has been a decline in Alumni participation in annual donations. It goes beyond the dollars—it impacts the rankings, the reputation and the value of a Daniels degree. Last year, only 3% of the 30,000 alumni contributed to the Daniels Tomorrow annual fund.

Graduates of the DU program earn an average $151,236 a year three years after completing it, up 44 percent from before taking the program, based on data for 2008 graduates, the Financial Times said on its website.

So consider a donation today, and help the Business School regain an upward trajectory in the rankings.

Fiegl to Play for USA Hockey National Team

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Jared Fiegl 1996 Born Forward from Parker Colorado has made a commitment to play in Ann Arbor for the National Team Development Program. Fiegl played last year for the Colorado Rampage U16AAA team and for Coach Ed Saxer playing in 59 games and scoring 7 goals and 4 assists. He played up an age group that was all 1994 and 1995 birth years and skipped his second year of U14 hockey.

It's been a busy off season for Fiegl while he also is taking his talents to University of Denver, the college hockey team he grew up watching. Fiegl was being pursued by many college hockey powers before making his choice to play for powerhouse DU. Fiegl will arrive on campus at DU in 2014 and will play the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 season in Ann Arbor Michigan for the NTDP. There is also a big buzz going around about Fiegl being a high NHL pick in 2014. Director Andrew Sherman said “the Rampage are fortunate to have someone of Fiegl's abilities and character in our program.”

Thanks for the feedback on the masthead. I think it sums up last weekend pretty accurately.

Thanks also for the heads up on Jared Fiegel. 15 years-old and already 6'0 178 lbs.

Once I'm done paying off those exorbitant student loans I'll be happy to donate. Now as an alum if I got discounts on hockey tickets, parking, hockey drop-ins, etc I'd be more inclined.

Oops, there I go on a tangent....
