Kim's resume is ever-growing: Model, reality TV star, influencer, entrepreneur, future lawyer, and most recently, lecturer at Harvard.

"The class’s assignment was to learn about SKIMS," she wrote of her billion-dollar shapewear fashion company. "My partner Jens and I spoke about our marketing, our challenges and our greatest wins.

"I’m so proud of Skims and the thought that it is a course being studied at Harvard is just crazy!!!" she added.

Althought the 42-year-old said the accomplishment was a "bucket list dream," her showing has caused a lot of backlash online aimed at the university.

Kim's SKIMs company is said to be worth around $3.2 billion, while the star herself is estimated to have a $1.4 billion net-worth.

For many of Kim's fans, it was inspiring to see the mom of four speak about her speak about her business' path to success at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

"There's nothing you can't do!" wrote one follower. "You inspire me so much."
