According to Sports Network, Miami Heat center, Shaquille O’Neal, picked up an advanced degree in Business Administration over the weekend.
O’Neal was one of the 2,200 University of Phoenix graduates honored at the Forum in Los Angeles.
“It’s just something to have on my resume when I go back into reality,” O’Neal said. “Someday I might have to put down a basketball and have a regular 9-to-5 like everybody else.”
The 7-1 center went to LSU, but left school early to pursue an NBA career. However, O’Neal promised his family that he would graduate, which he did in 2000, and also said he would eventually receive an MBA.
O’Neal took a majority of his classes online and also attended many sessions several days a week at a West Los Angeles campus before he was traded.
