Kim Kardashian delivers a speech at Harvard Business School
Kim Kardashian visited Harvard Business School as a guest speaker on Friday to talk about SKIMS, her multi-billion dollar shapewear company, according to NBC10 Boston. The reality TV star was accompanied by a film crew and spent an hour and 45 minutes on campus.
“I think a lot of people don’t respect her as the co-head of a multi-billion dollar company,” said a student named Liz, who attended the seminar.
“Just learning from someone who has built such a successful business was really exciting, and I think having no cameras in the room, being able to have this candid conversation was also special,” said continued Liz.
Kardashian, who launched Boston-based private equity firm Skyy Partners last year and has become an outspoken advocate for prison reform, recounted her Kardashian-style journey and posted an Instagram video of her workout 6 a.m. before visiting the Boston Common.
After sharing a photo of Martin Luther King Jr.’s newly unveiled memorial, “The Embrace,” Kardashian visited Harvard. She posted a video of the snowy campus before her class started, “Moving Beyond: Direct to Consumer,” according to The Boston Globe.
“What’s exciting is sitting down with these founders and finding out what their dream is,” Kardashian told The Wall Street Journal of Skyy in September. “I want to support what it is, not change who they are in their DNA, but just support them and take them to a different level.”
However, not everyone was as enthusiastic as Kardashian. While Maddie Yardley, teacher support specialist happily captioned a video of Kardashian’s arrival on Twittersome felt the reality TV star didn’t belong at Harvard — and voiced those sentiments on social media.
“Kim Kardashian was born into wealth” one person tweeted.
“Attempted to use a sex tape to launch an acting or singing career; nor launched,” they continued. “Kim K was rich enough to run a scripted reality show because she and her family are shameless. Harvard is just as corny as the Kardashians are now.
However, Kardashian has something to offer Harvard students, as Forbes valued SKIMS at $3.2 billion last year. His influence, meanwhile, has led to meetings with former President Donald Trump and clemency for those given exorbitant sentences like Alice Johnson.
Ultimately, keeping up with the Kardashians is a dogged pursuit that has now brought fans to Harvard.
