    Channing Tatum on Monday in Melbourne, Australia. The actor-producer recently made an appearance at Harvard Business School.

    Channing Tatum was a recent guest speaker at Harvard Business School, three years after he took a four-day executive education course at the university.

    The “Magic Mike” actor-producer joined actress Cody Horn and producer Reid Carolin to speak to HBS professor Anita Elberse’s students, Elberse said in an Instagram post last Wednesday. Elberse teaches a course called “Businesses of Entertainment, Media, and Sports,” according to Harvard.

    Tatum took Elberse’s course in 2016. The four-day-long course costs $10,000 and teaches “new approaches for driving revenue and success in today’s entertainment environment,” according to Harvard.

    “For the record, it was @channingtatum’s idea to make this a prom picture. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it,” Elberse wrote.

    Tatum and Elberse joked about going to prom together.

    “Anita you would [have] been an epic prom date. If Harvard has a prom and your husband doesn’t want to go and co signs I’d be honored. Hahahaha we’ll break the dance floor,” Tatum wrote in a comment on Elberse’s post.

    Horn posted a similar photo with Tatum, Elberse, and Carolin outside the library. Singer Jessie J , Tatum’s girlfriend, commented with a heart emoji on the post.
