Mark Zuckerberg is headed back to Harvard, but this time he'll be giving the commencement speech. Harvard announced this week that the Facebook CEO and Harvard dropout was chosen to address students at a May 25 graduation ceremony.

President Drew Faust said Zuckerberg "has profoundly altered the nature of social engagement worldwide." Zuckerberg went to Harvard as a student in 2002 but left after his sophomore year to pursue his company. Bill Gates also dropped out of Harvard before going on to found Microsoft and become one of the world's richest and most influential people. Gates joined Zuckerberg for a short clip poking fun at the two tech giants for having never graduated.
