Pursuing the American Dream? Start with skills.

August 6, 2020
Check out the latest op-ed from WQU CEO Daphne Kis

If COVID-19 has taught us anything about education, it is that institutions need to be able to act with agility in order to ensure they are providing students with adaptive skill sets that transcend traditional career paths. In the same vein, professionals must learn to adapt to changing economies by leveraging opportunities that allow them to evolve their skillset.

WorldQuant CEO Daphne Kis elaborates on this idea in her op-ed with the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream, an organization whose mission it is to make the American Dream an attainable reality for millions of people around the world, by expanding access to education, health, and economic freedom, and by empowering an entrepreneurial mindset that takes full advantage of opportunity.

“To reskill and upskill is not a deferment of one's dream, but progression towards it. The path may not be what you planned, but the dream is still wholly intact, and it’s waiting for you.” - Daphne Kis, CEO, WorldQuant University.
