Bill Gates Getting a Degree

Despite dropping out of Harvard College in 1975 aged 20, Bill Gates will finally be receiving a degree there on June 7th this year. After Gates made the mistake of quitting Harvard, he went on to reclaim some of his pride by setting up a multi-national software empire and becoming the richest man in the world, so the school has decided that he deserves an honorary degree for his efforts. The details of the degree won’t be announced until the morning before it is awarded to Gates - it will be given to him when he delivers the school’s main commencement speech. “His contributions to the world of business and technology, and the great example he has set through his far-reaching philanthropy, will rightfully put him center stage in Harvard Yard,” said Paul Finnegan, president of the Harvard Alumni Association.Source: Bloomberg
