Ciara says she’s always dreamed of going to college, and now that dream is coming true.
The singer/songwriter and metro Atlanta native announced on Instagram she has been accepted not just to college, but to a program at Harvard.
“Words cannot describe my excitement!” she wrote.
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, Harvard’s website states.
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.
This would seem to be the perfect program for someone whose net worth is estimated at between $16 million and $20 million.
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.”
If that weren’t enough, her husband, Seattle Seahawk Russell Wilson, recently signed a four-year, $140 million contract, making him the highest paid player in the NFL.
Ciara joins an impressive list of fellow celebrities who have attended Harvard, including Barack and Malia Obama, Conan O'Brien, and Natalie Portman, E News reported.
