“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!”
Ciara will attend Harvard’s Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program, with classes in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The $10,000 fee for the four-day course, which is under Harvard’s umbrella of executive education programs, covers tuition, books, case materials, accommodations and most meals, according to the Harvard website.
The curriculum includes “enlightening cases featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, ‘Hamilton: An American Musical,’ MRC's ‘House of Cards,’ and The Walt Disney Studios, the program provides new insight into strategic entertainment business challenges,” the website states.
“Leveling all the way up! I see you Momma,” Ciara’s husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, said on her post. “I can’t wait to see our daughter follow in your footsteps!”
It looks to be the perfect program for someone whose net worth is estimated at between $16 million and $20 million. She released her seventh album, “Beauty Marks,” on May 10.
In addition to her singing career, Ciara has launched Beauty Marks Entertainment, a company that “positions music at the intersection of Ciara’s other passions: film, fashion, technology and philanthropy,” according to the company’s website.
If that weren’t enough, Wilson recently signed a four-year, $140 million contract, making him the highest paid player in the NFL.
E! News reported that Ciara joins an impressive list of fellow celebrities who have attended Harvard, including Barack and Malia Obama, Conan O'Brien, and Natalie Portman.
