In 2005, former President Bill Clinton, through his eponymous foundation, founded the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to bring together global and emerging leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to the world’s most challenging problems. Since then, CGI members have pledged more than 3,600 Commitments to Action. In September 2016, Igor Tulchinsky joined that list, promising to help reduce the huge gap in educational opportunities for students globally through WorldQuant University, which offers a tuition-free, online master’s degree program in financial engineering.
During the 2016 CGI annual meeting in New York, Tulchinsky spoke with education advocate Chernor Bah about WorldQuant University’s efforts to bridge the gap between talent and educational opportunity.
