Ciara is taking her education to the next level after being accepted into an Ivy League school.

The “Goodies” hitmaker — who has a 5-year-old son Future Zahir with her former partner Future and a 2-year-old daughter Sienna with husband Russell Wilson — has revealed she is set to attend Harvard Business school.

Speaking about her acceptance to the prestigious college she called it “a lifetime opportunity” to be given a place on their Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program.

Alongside a picture of her posing in a sweater with H on it, Ciara announced on Instagram: “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 a lifetime opportunity to attend @Harvard BEMS. #WhyNotHER.”

Harvard states that the course will “examine best practices and winning strategies in the worlds of film, television, publishing, music and sports.”

As for the sport element of her diploma, Ciara‘s other half is a quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.

It’s no surprise that the 33-year-old singer has opted for the course as she launched her own company Beauty Marks Entertainment earlier this year, which not only acts as a record label for the R&B star but encompasses her other passions for “film, fashion, technology and philanthropy.”

The “about” section on the business’ website reads that it is “a company at the vanguard of the fast-changing music industry.

“With a business model built on fully supporting the artist, the female-led enterprise places Ciara at the forefront of forward-thinking entertainers taking an entrepreneurial approach to their careers.

“BME also fulfills all the functions of a record label and provides an outlet for Ciara to achieve her many far-ranging ambitions.”

Ciara — who released her seventh studio album Beauty Marks on May 10 — follows in the footsteps of the likes of Natalie Portman, Matt Damon and Barack and Michelle Obama, who have all attended the world-famous university.
