Charles “Dusty” Riddle, MBA ‘08
Capital One – Manager – Business Analytics, Credit Risk Management
Co-President – Simon School Alumni Network of Greater Washington, DC

Since graduation, I have re-emerged into the working world with an extremely valuable asset—a Simon MBA.  I have far more insight into the variables that make a business succeed, have developed an outstanding economic framework to aid my clients, and have learned how to manage my own personal brand.

I lead the Forecasting and Analytics team that is responsible for Capital One’s Retail Card Partnerships. These partnerships include all Capital One-managed Private Label Credit Cards, such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Best Buy, Costco, Kohl’s, etc. Prior to joining Card CRM, I managed mortgage analytics and oversaw the modeling of Capital One’s Rep and Warranty risk exposure.

My words of advice for prospective students considering Simon Business School:
Simon prepares you to succeed by allowing you to obtain the very best business school education, by inviting you to join the strong network of Simon alumni, helping you figure out what career you want and how to get it, and by teaching you to constantly improve yourself. These are assets that will continually benefit me as a Simon alumnus.
