After dropping a day’s worth of clues, Harvard Business School announced Monday its 2014 Class Day speaker: Salman Khan, founder of online learning nonprofit Khan Academy.

The School subtly dropped hints on Twitter throughout the day, urging students to guess the surprise guest by using the hashtag #HBS2014. The clues were as follows:

First Clue

Second Clue

Third Clue

Fourth Clue

Fifth Clue

Khan will follow in the footsteps of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Ann Moore, former CEO of Time Inc., who delivered the Harvard Business School Class Day speeches in 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The same year Sandberg was in town — famously stating, “If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, just get on” — Khan gave a commencement speech at MIT. While there, he admitted he spent the best four years of his life at MIT, meaning he should probably open his Class Day speech at his fellow alma mater with an apology.

Although, given Harvard Business School did accuse Khan of sharing something in common with Justin Bieber, perhaps they’re even. The Bieb’s track record isn’t glimmering these days and, despite the fact they’re both YouTube phenoms, Khan shouldn’t be held to the same low standards. (Sorry I’m not sorry, Beliebers.)

Khan holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, as well as three MIT degrees, including a bachelor’s in electrical engineering and computer science, a bachelor’s in mathematics and a master’s in electrical engineering and computer science. Khan, a champion of online education, has put his degrees to good use, leaving his job as a hedge fund analyst to found Khan Academy, which now boasts a library of more than 3,000 videos, covering everything from arithmetic and physics to finance and history.

Khan’s speech is sure to be inspiring. For a taste of what students can expect, here are quotes from Khan’s 2012 commencement speech at MIT:

  • “Replace the words ‘I have to’ with ‘I get to’ in your vocabulary. Smile with your mouth, your eyes, your ears, your face, your body, at every living thing you see.”
  • “Make people feel that you care about them. And here’s … a little secret: The best way to do this is to actually care about them.”
  • “Make people feel that you are listening to them. Another little secret: The best way to do this is to actually listen.”
