As the rap darling continues to appeal to fans with her music and passion for education, fans are intrigued to learn her major in college. After all, it’s become quite standard for many celebrities to promote education to their fans, and with the latest announcement of Saweetie stepping into an instructor role, it’s become a burning question. So, in what specialty did Saweetie get her degree? Here’s the 4-1-1.
Saweetie earned a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Southern California.
There’s a reason why parents often say that it’s important to earn a college degree. Even for folks who are determined to explore other avenues career-wise, earning a degree is often seen as a backup plan. In the case of 28-year-old Saweetie, she’s using it to build her empire.
If you’ve been out of the loop, Saweetie graduated from USC with a bachelor’s degree in business in 2016, per Blavity. The femcee majored in communications but specialized in business, which, she told the outlet, has heavily contributed to her career today.
“When you think about college, I don't remember what I studied for," Saweetie said. "What it taught me is how to think. And some of us need that — like me. It just taught me how to be a businesswoman. I think that's really important because I do control a lot of things that go on around me."
And she has definitely been in her business-woman bag as of late. From securing the McDonalds Saweetie meal and Crocs partnership to landing collaborations with MAC Cosmetics, KISS Colors, and more, Saweetie is unstoppable.
Saweetie will be joining the USC staff as an instructor.
Going back to college again is a dream many of us often ponder, but Saweetie is making it happen in a way that we’d never imagine. Backstage at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert, Saweetie revealed that she will be returning to her alma mater as an instructor, news that has been circulating social media for some time.
The “Best Friend” hitmaker confirmed the rumors and shared that she’s excited to get in front of the students.
“I would like to teach about branding and marketing in the modern day,” she says in the video clip obtained by Hollywood Unlocked. “It’s important for businesses to evolve with modern consumers, Gen Z, [and] millennials. They are the people spending the money. So, it’s important that we evolve and adapt to the consumer.”
Saweetie has already shown that she can achieve whatever she puts her mind to, and with the latest development in her career, she’ll continue to inspire fans while also educating them in the process.
