The Hult Prize inspires people to make a better world possible.

Behind the Hult Prize is Hult International Business School. Founded by entrepreneur, Bertil Hult, on the belief that you can only truly learn by doing—the school brings together creative, open-minded people from all over the world to do business, not just study it. Ranked among the best by the Financial Times, Economist, Forbes, and Bloomberg Businessweek, Hult offers full-time, part-time, and live online higher education programs across its global campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, and New York.

Stephen Hodges, President Hult International Business School

I am humbled by what we have been able to achieve in the last 11 years. We set off this program with the notion that social enterprise would become the norm for doing business and I'm grateful to have been an ambassador for it. I am continually inspired by all of the talented people that continue to support and build impact centered enterprises

– Charlemagne Quinitio, COO


Having started and lived as a participant, organizer, intern and now an effective female leader in entrepreneurship around the world. The Hult Prize has given me more opportunities and exposure than I could ever imagine.

– Nelly Andrade, Chief of Staff


I have learned something in the last decade: satisfying basic human needs isn't the end, it's the beginning.

– Ahmad Ashkar, CEO & Founder


At the Hult Prize I have the privilege to be part of a global youth-led movement dedicated to building a better future every single day. This is a community that doesn't take no for an answer. It's been an amazing journey so far, and we're just getting started.

– Phil Auerswald, CAO
