Singer Ciara is going to Harvard for an entertainment management program


Ciara is one-two stepping her way into Harvard!

The singer took to instagram Monday to reveal she’s going to the prestigious university for a special, multi-day business program.

“I always dreamt of going to college, but by God’s grace, my music career took me on a path that I’m so thankful for,” she wrote. “This week I got accepted into Harvard! Words cannot describe my excitement! Thank you @anitaelberse for a once in in a lifetime opportunity to attend @Harvard BEMS.”

The “Level Up” singer and mother who also has her own beauty line is going to The Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports — aka BEMS — program at the university. It’s not clear when she’ll be attending, but the next session is from May 29 to June 1.

“In this entertainment management course, you will uncover new approaches for driving revenue and success in today’s entertainment environment. Through an up-close examination of why some creative businesses thrive while others fail to survive, you will learn when to make smaller versus blockbuster bets, the best way to capitalize on market disruptions, and how to establish long-term competitive advantage,” the program’s official page explains of the course.

The goal of the course is to invest better in talent, expand one’s network and allocate resources in a more efficient fashion.

In addition to her music and her beauty ventures, Ciara and her husband, Russell Wilson, also launched a production company earlier this year.

“We want to be able to impact lives. That’s what we want to do at the end of the day — even from the kids space. We just want to tell stories that connect with the world and to the emotions,” Wilson told the Hollywood Reporter in April about the new company.

Is there anything Ciara can’t do?
