Ciara is officially a Harvard girl.
The "Level Up" singer announced her acceptance into the Ivy League’s Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program on Instagram Monday (May 20). "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. This week I got accepted into Harvard!" she captioned a photo of herself wearing a Harvard sweater. "Words cannot describe my excitement! Thank you [HBS faculty chair] @anitaelberse for a once in in a lifetime opportunity to attend @Harvard BEMS. #WhyNotHER."
Ciara's proud husband Russell Wilson later commented on the post, writing, "Leveling All the way Up! I see you Momma! I can’t wait to see our daughter follow in your footsteps! 🙏🏾❤️."
According to the Harvard Business School website, admissions into the 4-day course is "a selective process based on your professional achievement and organizational responsibilities." The program is all about providing "new insight into strategic entertainment business challenges" by teaching its students how to "develop and execute more effective business strategies," "debate and analyze the business and technology trends that are redefining the industry," and "how to launch and manage creative products and portfolios more strategically."
Upon completion of the program, Ciara will earn a certificate of completion.
News of Ciara's Harvard acceptance came nearly two weeks after the release of her latest album, Beauty Marks. As fans know, the project was quite special for the 33-year-old singer as it marked the first time she's released an album on her own label Beauty Marks Entertainment.
On Monday, Ciara also revealed that the album had already "sold over 135k equivalent global album units," and "the entire project generated over 208 million global YouTube views!"
