A few famous faces hit the books at Harvard Business School this week.

Students got the chance to rub shoulders with actor Channing Tatum, hip-hop star LL Cool J, and NBA players Pau Gasol and Chris Paul during Thursday’s Executive Education class run by Professor Anita Elberse.

The course attended by the superstars is part of the school’s Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports program. According to its description online, the program focuses on providing proven strategies for marketing products and talent, as well as tips for “identifying and capitalizing on market disruptions.”

Tatum became the subject of the school’s first ever “live case” study while attending Professor Elberse’s class.

As the star of the worldwide phenomenon Magic Mike, the actor was the perfect person to chat about the impact of dance movies on Hollywood during Thursday’s discussion.

While the stars were focused on business at the program, that didn’t stop Tatum and his fellow famous attendees from snapping a few selfies with their classmates.
