R&B singer Ciara posted on Instagram this weekend that she will be attending Harvard Business School. Well it turns out that she was not being completely honest with her post.
In reality, Ciara enrolled in a $10,000 seminar that's being held at Harvard's Business School. The seminar goes on for three days and it does not result in a degree.
Ciara, 33, attempted to mislead her fans by posting on Instagram a picture of herself in a Harvard crewneck on May 20.
She captioned the picture, “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! Words cannot describe my excitement!”
And Ciara's lies continued, She thanked Harvard Business School Professor Anita Elberse “For a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend @Harvard.”
The Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports (BEMS) is a three-day seminar from May 29 to June 1 that costs a whopping $10,000.
On the program's website, it states, “Although most programs have no formal educational requirements, admission is a selective process based on your professional achievement and organizational responsibilities.”
How "selective" are they, you ask? Well some on social media are saying that basically everyone that applies is accepted.
Another celebrity was recently in hot water for allegedly "misleading" her fans about an acceptance into Harvard and that person was Blac Chyna.
TMZ broke the story ... Chyna and her team told them she'd soon begin an online business analytics class with Harvard next month. Hours after the story was posted, with the "acceptance letter" Chyna provided us, Harvard reached out and said she's totally full of crap. In more Ivy League-ish terms, of course.
A member of Harvard's Board of Alumni told them the story sent waves of rage through grads. We're told the online business school was already a point of contention with alumni, but the idea that Chyna was in line to get Harvard credit ... was the final straw.
