Born in 1994, Dr. Eli Joseph is an American educator and scholar. Currently, he is a faculty member at New York University, Columbia University, and the University of California, Los Angeles. As an educator, his areas of expertise include quantitative finance, statistics, data analytics, and behavioural finance. It should not be forgotten that Eli is only 28 years as of January 2023. Having achieved that academic feat at that tender age only means that he is no ordinary person. No wonder Forbes magazine listed him among the top under-30 scholars.
Why you should book Eli Joseph for your next event
- Dr. Eli is one of those few successful young figures who have tested rejection enough. His story is as inspiring as it is touching. After facing multiple rejections, he decided to create a single-page document in which he highlighted all his failures. It’s this attention-grabbing document that prompted people to offer him chances.
- He has a huge profile, having been featured in the New York Post, Sheen Magazine, Black Enterprise, Business Insider, Harvard Business School, Entrepreneur Magazine, Forbes, and of course, TEDx.
- Eli has mastered the art of communication. He is articulate and entertaining.
While Eli seems to possess all the accolades any academician would desire to have, it would be wrong for anyone to think that this guy had a smooth ride to his academic excellence. First, he lost his father at age two, meaning the sole responsibility of upbringing rested squarely on his mom. History shows that Eli’s mother had to juggle three or four jobs to care for him and his two brothers. In his own words, Eli admits that he understood the art of hard work while still young.
While Joseph is currently a Columbia University lecturer, you may not know that the same institution turned down his application as an undergraduate student. But that’s not the only rejection he faced. Thousands of potential employers also rejected him. Little did they know that Joseph was a genius who would come up with something no one had ever thought of: The Rejection Resume. Ask him, and he will tell you that his ambition to succeed grew even stronger every time his application was rejected.
Joseph holds a bachelor’s degree from Queens College, having graduated in 2015. He has a master’s and doctorate in business administration from Brooklyn College and Felician University, respectively. Having received a doctorate at only age 24, Joseph became the youngest ever Doctor in his field of study.
