Harvard Business School...
Showbiz 411 reports that Kasseem "Swizz Beatz" Dean, the producer and songwriter (and husband of Alicia Keys), has been accepted to Harvard Business School's nine-week Owner/President Management Extension Program. It's a program for CEOs and heads of companies. He will spend $100,000 on classes that begin in mid May and will live in the dorms.
He said: "I could have stayed with a lot of different famous people. But I didn't want to pull strings. And I wanted to have the full experience of being there."
Keys and their son Egypt will join him on the weekends. Keys is preparing to release a new album this summer.
He also said that he never attended college. He added: "I graduated high school and went right into music. But now I work with Monster on headphones and other products. I've raised millions for start up companies. Harvard looked at my real life experience and converted it into credits."
