CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Bill Gates is finally getting his Harvard degree — 32 years after he walked away from the university on the path to becoming the world’s wealthiest person.
Gates, billionaire co-founder of Microsoft Corp., philanthropist and college dropout, will receive an honorary degree June 7 when he delivers Harvard University’s 356th commencement address.

“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 on center stage in Harvard Yard,” Harvard Alumni Association President Paul Finnegan said in a statement.
