Harvard Business School students were treated to an A-list guest speaker when Kim Kardashian dropped by the Ivy League school on Friday.

The 42-year-old reality TV icon dropped by Boston business school for a two-hour session in which she delved into her success with her popular shapewear brand SKIMS, according to TMZ.

Sources told the publication that Kim was joined in the speaking engagement by her SKIMS co-founder Jens Grede.

The duo were addressing students in a course titled Moving Beyond Direct-to-Consumer, which is led by the Harvard professors Len Schlesinger and Ayelet Israeli, along with executive fellow Matt Higgins.

Video of Kim strutting down a hallway at the business school that was captured by an employee showed that she was surrounded by a film crew.

According to People, the footage will be used for a storyline on her Hulu series The Kardashians.

The shapewear mogul reportedly had massive crowds students and onlookers — as well as reporters and camera crews — following her as she moved around the campus.

It appears to have been largely a surprise for students and staff, which explains the large crowds of shocked onlookers.

Kim likely wanted to keep the event as low-key as possible to prevent hordes of gawkers from descending on the business school.

Video captured by a staff member and shared to Twitter reveals that Kim was dressed for business with a chic pinstripe suit featuring wide pant legs reaching down to the ground and covering up her black pointy-toed footwear.

She wore it with a matching jacket and had a chic black leather duster draped over her shoulders.

‘She talked about what she’d been working on and this new private equity firm and SKIMS,’ an attendee told People.

Although she was the star of the class, she appears to have been more of a supplementary figure for the lecture.

‘She was sitting off to the side but was still involved with the lecture,’ the attendee added. 

The same attendee was starstruck after getting a closer look at the Kim.

‘She really looked just like she did on TV. She was stunning, and it was exactly how she’s pictured. That’s exactly what she looks like,’ they gushed. ‘When she was leaving, she waved at us and said hi as she was walking out.’

Other video showed Kim waving to her fans as she was swiftly escorted into a waiting SUV after wrapping up her presentation.

Prior to her trip to Harvard, the raven-haired beauty reportedly visited the controversial bronze sculpture The Embrace.

The artwork has been assailed by some critics and visitors, who complained that it does not accurately represent its subjects, Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King, while others have complained that its semi-abstract design looks almost phallic when seen from certain angles.

The sculpture shows two sets of arms embracing, and was taken from a famous photo of the Kings sharing a hug, though only their arms were used in the design. 

Kim reportedly kept busy for the duration of her trip. She dropped by the Equinox gym at the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common, for her regular morning workout with a stairmaster.

It was a short visit, though. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had flown in on Thursday night, and by Friday afternoon she was back on a private jet to her home in Los Angeles.
