Olsen recently posted a photo of himself, Chip and Joanna Gaines, Ciara, and other stars at a Harvard business class. He and the others are taking a course on the business of entertainment. The Harvard program has become a popular course of study among celebrities. Here’s part of what Olsen wrote on Instagram:

Boooom!!! We’re at it again with the “Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports” (#BEMS) program! As always, the class includes a number of people with careers that stand out even from the accomplished executives that normally fill our classrooms… Collectively, this group alone has won an NBA Championship , Olympic Gold medal , UEFA Champions League trophy, Golden Ball and Golden Glove award, and scored 5 World Cup Goals in total across three consecutive World Cups… So inspiring that even for these superstars, the learning never stops—and amazing that they chose to join us at @HarvardHBS this week. #Harvard #BEMS #crushingit @lifeatHBS.
