Kim Kardashian’s Harvard Business School Speech Explained

This week, Kim Kardashian spoke at Harvard Business School – and her take on the whole thing was interesting.

“I’m so proud of Skims, and the idea of ​​it being a course being studied at Harvard is crazy!!!” she continued, posting “#BucketListDream” on Instagram.

According to one professor, she said the students“It seemed so simple, but if there’s a product that’s not out there, and it fills a gap that’s missing, how can you not be successful?”

However, Kim’s assertion that there is a “course being studied at Harvard” about SKIMS is not quite accurate. “HBS Moving Beyond DTC” is no ordinary MBA class—it’s one of the “Intensive Short Programs” the school offers to first- and second-year MBA students before the spring semester begins. Basically, they are “no credit, no fee” options that run over four days.

In fact, the 2021 version was 23 classes over four days, “led by a DTC chief executive/investor/consultant.” 2021 also saw some famous faces – such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Julianne Hough, and Kevin O’Leary. David Chang from Momofuku was also at this year’s version speak.

According to People, her appearance will be seen in the upcoming season The Kardashians. This continues what Kim previously tried to confirm about her work ethic on the show, for example when she said, “All the big banks and VCs – everyone says: Apple, Nike, SKIMS. Like, we’re in that conversation, and it makes me very proud.”

Of course, being invited to speak at Harvard is a huge honor! But to be clear: There is no Harvard MBA SKIMS course.
