Ciara Gets Accepted into Harvard Business School (Photo)
Ciara most definitely took to heart her hit single "Level Up," as she did exactly that after being accepted into Harvard's prestigious Business School.
Ciara is set to get even busier now that she's been accepted into an Ivy League institution, particularly Harvard Business School. The "Level Up" singer just released her seventh album, "Beauty Marks," last May 10, under her own label entitled Beauty Marks Entertainment.

AAAH!! What a year it’s been! I shed tears of joy as I write this! Taking control of my journey was one of my proudest moments of my life. I’ve been able to book magazine covers I’ve always dreamt of being on, rock on stages I’ve been dying to perform on again, and in doing so allowed me to discover the power of the relationship I have with my fans! #CSQUAD! I also learned that #BeautyMarks to date has sold over 135k equivalent global album units, spurred a Gold Record with Level Up which is now VERY close to being platinum and the entire project generated over 208 million global YouTube views! I couldn’t be more excited looking towards the future and everything we have planned for this year and beyond! Truly feeling like a kid all over again! I’m truly grateful, for my family, friends, team and all of you that have lifted me up! It means the world to me! Love Ciara
While this is such a feat in itself, she decided to level up even more by attending the Ivy League school's Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports program. Those accepted into this program are often considered based on professional achievement and organizational responsibilities, which Ciara is definitely an expert in.
Redefining the Industry
Now that Ciara is the latest student for this program, she is set to learn more about the current business and technology trends that are redefining the industries of entertainment, media, and sports. She will also be studying how to develop and execute more effective business strategies, and learn how to launch and manage her own creative products and portfolios strategically.

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! Thank you @anitaelberse for a once in in a lifetime opportunity to attend @Harvard BEMS. #WhyNotHER
Within just 10 days of release, Ciara's album, "Beauty Marks," has already sold more than 135,000 physical units globally, and has received over 208 million views on YouTube. This is her first album under her "Beauty Marks Entertainment" music label, which she launched together with "Why Not You Productions," a production company that she and her husband Russell Wilson are currently heading to develop film, TV, and digital content.
A Phenomenal Women
Russell Wilson is one lucky guy having Ciara as a wife, as she is not only talented, but kind, loving, and goal oriented. While he often gushes about his "fine" wife, he now has one more thing to brag about: her acceptance into Harvard. Russell has always been Ciara's number one fan the same way she is his, and this new accomplishment is something that both of them could definitely be proud of.
With the creation of her own production house, media label, and even being an artist in herself, she can now consider herself a Harvard student, something that not a lot of people in the industry can say for themselves.
Way to go, Ciara!
