In honor of his latest achievement, Swizz uploaded a throwback photo of himself to Instagram on Thursday (November 16), and included the following caption:
“Today is graduation day In life we must keep graduating until the end. When I say we must graduate I’m talking about on all levels not just school. This moment is special to me and my family because many people look up to me and they use my drive to thrive. Today I will become Harvard alumni and although I’m not getting an “MBA” no one can EVER take this accomplishment away from me.”
Swizz first entered into the Harvard Business School program in 2014. During a past interview, he recalled the motivation behind joining the elite business program.
“I just felt like you have to keep graduating your brand,” Swizz Beatz said. “A lot of people get complacent with their success and things that they’ve done before and I just wasn’t comfortable with that because I started transitioning from producer to business owner.”
His wife, Grammy Award-winning singer, Alicia Keys couldn’t have been more thrilled with his success as well.
“Today was a HUGE accomplishment!!” The Voice coach exclaimed on Instagram.
“Graduating from Harvard Business School is not only your triumph, it belongs to all of us!! Your family, your friends and everyone that vibes with you!! It reminds us ALL that there is no ceiling to our greatness!! And it’s up to us how far we want to go!!!!! From the Bronx to Harvard baby!!!!!!!! Just how you say it “sky is not the limit it’s JUST the view”
