Kim Kardashian is an influential personality in the Hollywood industry who has even reached to world’s renowned institution, Harvard Business School with her shapewear line SKIMS. It is no doubt that the brand has done extremely well in the industry and made the socialite proud with what it achieved within a few years. This is why her new proud moment is also gaining much attention.
The 42-year-old socialite is already a renowned personality in the industry which is why her Harvard Business School visit also came with lots of mixed reactions from the fans.
Kim Kardashian Boasted About Her SKIMS Brand Being Taught as a Course at Harvard Business School
The fashion mogul, Kim Kardashian was recently invited by the prestigious, Harvard Business School to talk about the success of her shape-wear brand, SKIMS. This brand of hers which went to market in 2019 doubled in value to a whopping $3.2 billion as per reports released last year.
The aspiring lawyer allegedly gave a 2-hour lecture for a class called HBS Moving Beyond DTC about her brand discussing her marketing and the challenges she faced with the brand. She was accompanied by the co-founder of SKIMS, Jens Grede who wrote on socials about how her brand was given as a class assignment to MBA students.
While her lecture might have covered what she dealt with the brand, not many were happy about her joining the institution as a guest lecturer.

“I’m so proud of Skims and the thought that it is a course being studied at Harvard is just crazy!!!”

It’s a case study! And you didn’t go there to teach a class. Your partner Jen is a smart man who uses your celebrity status to sell Spanx basically. Why all these lies to people? I don’t get it. It’s not a course. It’s a case study!!!

Many users pointed out that the mother of four claiming her brand to be a “course” at HBS is quite inaccurate as she was invited to HBS Moving Beyond DTC which is a short-term intensive program school offered to MBA students. Even after that, it is quite a great opportunity for her to get invited by the school.
