  • Apple CEO Tim Cook to Deliver Commencement Speech at George Washington University

    It has been reported that Apple CEO Tim Cook will be receiving an honorary doctorate and delivering the keynote address at George Washington University’s commencement this upcoming May. According to the university, students chose Cook during a nominations process and said that the company’s products are all over campus.

    "I am delighted that Tim Cook has accepted our invitation to give this year's Commencement address on the National Mall," said Steven Knapp, President of George Washington University. "I know our graduating students will be inspired and enlightened by his reflections on the lessons he has garnered from his distinguished career as a highly effective leader at the forefront of technological innovation."
    The last time Cook spoke at a commencement was at Auburn University back in 2010, where he graduated from and claimed led him to Apple. This was before Cook became Apple’s CEO and was still the company’s Chief Operating Officer. When he spoke at Auburn University, he noted that working at the Cupertino-based company was the best decision he had ever made.

    Other notable GWU commencement speakers include previous NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton, actress Kerry Washington and former U.S. President George H.W. Bush. Cook is scheduled to speak at GWU on May 17th.
