Highest Learning: Dwyane Wade Graduates From Harvard Management Program


Dwyane Wade’s contract status with the Miami Heat might be murky, but that hardly means the two-time champion’s playing days are anywhere close to over. After yet another highly productive season, it’s ever-apparent that he seems primed to remain an impact player for years to come.

Still, Wade understands that there will eventually be a life beyond basketball – and the 32-year-old has already begun preparing for it. In between serving as a guest analyst for ABC during the NBA Finals, Wade began and completed a four-day executive course in sports and entertainment management at Harvard University.


The Brooklyn Nets’ Mason Plumlee and New York Jets’ Brandon Marshall also participated in the program.


Wade’s post-playing resumé was already impressive: Two-time NBA champion; Finals MVP; Olympic Gold medalist; television commentator; author; and most importantly, spouse of a Hollywood star. Now, with “Harvard graduate” added to the list?

Yeah, we’re pretty sure Wade will have his pick of careers once his basketball one is finally finished.
