Nollywood actress Chika Ike has been accepted into one of Harvard Business School‘s Executive Education programs.
The actress made the announcement in two Instagram posts.
She explained that she has been applying for 5 years.
Chika Ike was accepted into the institution’s Program for Leadership Development (PLD).
The Program for Leadership Development is designed specifically for specialists and star contributors with at least 10 to 15 years of work experience who have been identified as outstanding prospects for increased leadership responsibilities within their organizations.
PLD students represent diverse business functions, companies, industries, and countries, Harvard said.
Ideal candidates include:
- Vice presidents
- Project managers
- Functional managers
The institution said that the course “is a personalized learning experience” that is tailored to each student’s unique leadership goals and challenges.
It described it as “an accelerated alternative to the executive MBA”.
The institution said that the course’s intensive modular format puts students on the fast track to leadership.

I finally got accepted into Harvard business school for my masters. After trying for 5 years and getting rejected..Yes ! The prestigious Ivy League University… Yippee ??????….I'm super excited….The good part is it's an executive study so I can work ( as an actress, Tv host and CEO ) ?? and school…I started business at age 17 and I've been doing this solely on self knowledge and instincts , I think it's time to hone my business skills from the mother of all business schools so I can have a sustainable company . …. God is awesome, he has done so much for me , looking at all my achievements so far .His grace has been with me all through. Doors that people said will never open , opened for my sake ….May he give you a blessing that looks like a lie such that people will question your blessings because of its magnitude . May your Enemies be confused and in awe of your blessings . May he give you reasons to smile as you rise in style and in glory .God is no respecter of man and doesn't care how anyone feels about your blessings. My story so far has truly been his divine Grace…… one advice …Never ever give up!#harvard #EMBA #africadiva
