Take Me Out To The Ballgame: Students Meet Cubs Owner Tom Ricketts, '93


Booth students in the Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Programs flocked to Wrigley Field to watch the Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds - with a very special guest. Owner and alumnus, Tom Ricketts, AB’88, (part-time!) MBA’93, joined the gang on the Budweiser Patio to interact with current students, impart some wisdom, and - of course - cheer on the Cubs.

Ricketts graciously mingled throughout the group, answering a variety of questions regarding his experience owning the Cubs and his roles as a Director of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation and Chairman and CEO of Incapital LLC - as well as sadly disclosing that, no, he was not on Undercover Boss. (That was his little brother, Pete, who also attended Booth.)

The event, which was coordinated by the Student Advisory Council (SAC), sold out quickly and, given the opportunity to speak with Ricketts, was a grand slam with students. Thanks again to SAC for a great event!
