Mark Zuckerberg finally gets his Harvard degree - 12 years after dropping out


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who had dropped out of college in order to launch his project, returned to Harvard 13 years later in order to collect an honorary degree.

Zuckerberg is the youngest personality who followed another famous Harvard dropout, Bill Gates, who spoke before its graduates a decade ago.

"Everyone was gone.I felt alone.I felt like an impostor, a 22-year-old kid who didn't know how the world worked".

"They taught me what it was like growing up and feeling targeted for your race and what it's like having a family member in prison", recalled Zuckerberg, who taught the students product development and marketing.

He was interested investigators his meeting with the Russian officials and businessmen, writes The Washington Post . The banker, Sergei Gorkov, is chairman of VneshEconomBank, a state bank under USA sanctions since July 2014.


Leading up his commencement speech, Zuckerberg has shared several videos and photos capturing his time as a Harvard student. "Every generation expands the circle of people we consider 'one of us.' For us, it now encompasses the entire world". "There's pressure to turn inwards".

Even if you don't work at Facebook, or weren't inspired to pursue a CS degree, Zuckerberg's work is still central to campus life. "This is the struggle of our times: The forces of freedom, openness and global community against the forces of authoritarianism, isolationism and nationalism". Back to Harvard to be precise - the university he famously dropped out of in 2004 to focus on that social networking platform you may have heard of - Facebook.

His speech this afternoon, wooden as ever, but still genuine, centered around the concept of objective - "feeling that you are part of something bigger than yourself" is how he put it.

"We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas", he said.

"This is literally where I sat", he says, pointing to a small wooden desk and chair inside Kirkland House, which is due to be renovated over the summer. "I'm not", he wrote in a lengthy Facebook post days before the commencement speech.

Mike Murphy's tweet points out one such error. Zuckerberg, who left college in 2005 after his sophomore year to build his infant social media platform into the multi-billion-dollar company it's become, gets an honorary degree from Harvard on Thursday.

Harvard attracts students from all over the world, and it's no easy feat to keep the tech-minded nearby, according to Jeffrey Bussgang, a Harvard graduate and venture capitalist at Flybridge Capital Partners in Boston.
