Though known as a journalist and public speaker through her former platform as host of CNBC’s personal finance show, On the Money, and contributor to publications such as Glamour, Latina, Essence and Men’s Health, Carmen Wong Ulrich describes herself as “a glorified teacher” since she has served as an instructor for years. Last fall, Ulrich joined the faculty of the Polytechnic Institute of New York University as an assistant professor of finance and risk engineering.
“It’s my favorite thing in the world to do—to motivate and to educate people,” says Ulrich. “They leave the room, hopefully, happier and fuller.”
