Richard H. Driehaus (BUS ’65, MBA ’70, DHL ’02) is among 33 business school graduates worldwide named to the 2019 Class of Influential Leaders by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the international business school accreditation organization.
Each honoree was chosen for being a “shining example of how AACSB accredited business schools prepare their graduates to create lasting impact in their communities, industries and around the world,” AACSB says on its Influential Leader website, which features profiles of the leaders. Driehaus, founder of Driehaus Capital Management and a philanthropist, was praised for his role as a momentum investing pioneer, his generosity to DePaul’s business college and his philanthropy benefiting arts, culture and economic empowerment programs, primarily in Chicago.
“AACSB’s honor is a tribute to Richard Driehaus’ transformational role as a finance industry visionary and generous benefactor for our business college and community,” says Misty Johanson, dean of the Driehaus College of Business. “We’re proud that Richard is a Triple Demon alumnus of our college.”
