A former University of Pennsylvania student has auctioned off some of his college assignments for thousands of dollars, but not because of the content of the research papers and tests, but because of the person who donated the bikes. Of Elon Musk.
According to Business Insider, student Brian Thomas extracted papers from a course.Leading businesses: Implementation and Operations “was taught in 1995 at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
Documents from the course were sold at the Thomas auction for $ 7,753, and the first document, a nine-page full exam booklet, had Musk’s initials on the front cover and a few small marks throughout the rest of the exam.
Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, examined the key points in the second paper included in the auction, which is a case study but did not comment, as he wrote his initials and Thomas marks in the introduction to this document.
The papers came with a course syllabus listing Musk as a teaching assistant, and Thomas kept the papers as souvenirs at the “congratulations” of the late Professor Miles Bass, who taught the course.
Thomas told CNN, which had previously reported on the sale, that he had no particular memories of Musk from the course, “I can not imagine a picture of him in class.”
