Thomas Finke, chairman and CEO of Barings, discusses access to four-year degrees and their importance in the workforce at the 2019 Milken Global Conference.

“Should everyone have a four-year education? I don’t think so. Should everyone have the right to it and opportunity to it? Absolutely!”

Tom’s 28-year financial career has included roles in both the banking and investment management industries. He received an M.B.A. from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce.

WorkingNation was on the ground at Milken Global Conference 2019 where some of the most powerful people in business, government, healthcare, and entertainment have gathered to discuss and debate how the world is being disrupted by economic and social change and what to do about it. The goal of the talk at the conference is how to drive shared prosperity.

While there, we documented all things future of work on Twitter at #WorkingNationOverheard and in interviews at our pop-up studio (watch our playlist below).
