head of states with harvard degree

Head of state is an important job in the sense that they could take a day off in President’s Day. Seriously, they have to take in charge in the time of crisis and be accountable for anything happening in a country, occasionally abroad, even though they have their own jets, own staffs, and even own military. Harvard University is one of the place to produce head of state in the world.

There are 13 schools to grant degrees at Harvard, including 4 Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS) affiliated schools — the College, the Graduated School of Arts and Sciences, the Extension School, and the School of Engineering — and 9 individual professional schools, including the Business School, the Dental School, the Design School, the Divinity School, the Education School, the Kennedy School, the Law School, the Medical School, and the School of Public Health.
