The Hult Prize was established by Bertil Hult, and is an annual, year-long competition that crowd-sources ideas from MBA and college students after challenging them to solve a pressing social issue around topics such as food security, water access, energy, and education. The Hult family – founders of Education First (EF)– donates USD 1 million in seed capital to help the winning team launch a social enterprise.
The Prize is a partnership between Hult International Business School and the United Nations Foundation. Former President Bill Clinton selects the challenge topic and announces the winner each September; he mentioned it in a 2012 TIME Magazine article about “the top 5 ideas that are changing the world for the better”. The Hult prize has been referred to as the “Nobel Prize for students” by Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus.
Yet Aliraza Rahimi one of the students of Avicenna University has passed all the process of Hult Prize membership and selected as a campus director for the Hult Prize on campus program at Avicenna University and made Avicenna family proud of being one of the Hult prize campus programs members. We congratulate this achievement for him and for the University and wish him success ahead.
