Irving is part of a class that also includes Detroit Pistons center Zaza Pachulia, Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap, and retired NFL tight end Martellus Bennett, according to Nicole Yang of Boston.com.
"Crossover Into Business" is a semester-long program designed to help professional athletes become more prepared for business ventures during and after their active sports careers. Each athlete is paired up with a Harvard Business School MBA student mentor, who will help "develop their business acumen and empower them to make better business decisions."
Irving spoke about wanting to pursue other interests in an interview with Boston.com's Kevin Slane in June.
"I feel like if I had the same amount of time that I was afforded (for basketball) to learn about business and investments, I think I'd probably be in a pretty different place," he said. "You just gotta learn as best you can on your own time."
