LL Cool J Celebrates Completing Harvard Business School Course


Rapper/actor Ll Cool J has joined the ranks of the celebrities who have completed courses at the prestigious Harvard Business School.

The hip-hop veteran, real name James Todd Smith, recently enrolled in the graduate business school of Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts to brush up on his knowledge of the inner workings of the entertainment, media and sports industries.

He took to Instagram on Monday (27Nov17) to share the news of his latest achievement as he posted a photo of himself raising his hand in class.

“I Completed the Business of Entertainment media & sports program @harvardhbs it was a life altering experience (sic),” he captioned the image. “Learning is cool…”

He also gave a special shout out to his lecturer Anita Elberse, adding: “Ps. The head of the program & my professor @anitaelberse was absolutely gangster.”

LL isn’t the only celebrity Elberse has taught – she currently counts actress Katie Holmes and Shakira’s soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique among her students.

The news emerges days after hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz celebrated his graduation from the Harvard Business School’s Owner/President Management Program earlier this month (Nov17).
