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.

A few impressions from this week?s classes with @channingtatum and @reid_carolin... Yep, we had fun. Events like these make me very grateful for the amazing people I get to hang out with, for the wonderful students who sign up for my course every year, and for the awesome community we have at @HarvardHBS. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! ( by @evephoto)
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.
Elberse posed for a photo with her arms around Tatum’s waist on the steps of Harvard’s Baker Library.
“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.
