Kim Praises Alums, Condemns Philosophy Majors

In a recent video for the Washington Post, President Jim Yong Kim discussed the qualities necessary for leadership. He went on to take the opportunity to rag on the philosophy major; quoting his father, Kim said "You are not going to make it in this world if you study philosophy...you have to get a skill." President Kim went on to say that you can "smell" the qualities of great luminaries, citing his "privilege in being around fantastic leaders," namely Dartmouth alums Ed Haldeman, C.E.O. of Freddie Mac, and Jeff Immelt, C.E.O. of General Electric. He further discussed his experiences working with President Bill Clinton. Cheers to that self call, Mr. President.

"My father was a dentist, and dentists are among the most practical people on earth. My mother is a theologian and philosopher. She was always trying to lift my sights to the higher things. This is what my dentist father and philosopher mother taught me: Keep your feet on the ground—but shoot for the stars."
