The Ritchie School: A Legacy of Entrepreneurism and Innovation
Named after Daniel Felix Ritchie, an entrepreneur who built his company at the height of the Great Depression, the Ritchie School is committed to providing high-quality education and academic research to the Rocky Mountain region and beyond.
With its founder as a symbol of innovation in the face of adversity, the Ritchie School is proud to offer an online graduate degree that inspires students to use technology to build a smarter, more sustainable world.
“Our true mark of student success doesn’t rest solely on what they accomplish while at the Ritchie School. A real measure of our programs is where our students go upon graduating.” — JB Holston, Dean, The Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science
