A bunch of celebrities paid for a four-day course at Harvard and now they’ve “graduated” and claim they are “alumni.”
Ciara, Chip and Joanna Gaines, NBA stars Kevin Love, Luc Mbah a Moute and Julius Randle, and actor Eric Christian Olsen were among those that completed a four-day Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports class at Harvard Business School.
Sharing a video showing her dancing with her professor, Ciara proclaimed she was “officially a @Harvard Alumna and this is my mood! Never stop believing!”
She later added, “My College Dream Has Come True and I’ll cherish this moment forever! What a surreal feeling walking to class everyday, interacting with my classmates, diving into case studies, exploring @Harvard campus and Cambridge! Never stop dreaming. Never stop believing.”
Joanna Gaines shared a series photos (and also revealed Chip was named Class President) and captioned the pics, “Verified
Course complete! School looks good on you @chipgaines ❤️.”
Harvard’s website describes the course by saying, “With an increasing number of musicians, athletes, stars, and authors promoting their brands via a wide range of online and offline channels, intermediaries must reinvent their strategies to compete effectively. This innovative short program provides proven approaches for marketing creative products and portfolios, managing and marketing talent, determining when to make smaller versus blockbuster bets, and identifying and capitalizing on market disruptions.”
The course costs $10,000 but can you really put a price on claiming to be a Harvard grad?
