Shaquille O’Neal received a doctoral degree from Barry University Saturday morning at the James L. Knight Center in downtown Miami. After winning the title with the Heat back in 2006, Shaq enrolled to Barry and has worked on the degree for the last 5 years specializing in organizational learning and leadership. His final GPA was 3.813. Shaq’s kids, his mother and some of his siblings were in the crowd for the ceremony.
And it was most definitely NOT an honorary degree, he earned it and says that it’s probably the biggest accomplishment of his life. He also added that his mom always let him know growing up that if he worked hard enough, he could one day become a doctor. And well, he did.
