BEYONCE'S DAD RETURNING TO SCHOOL AS LECTURER

Beyonce's manager/father Mathew Knowles is heading back to school to teach undergraduate students all about life in the entertainment industry.

The mogul, who guided Destiny's Child to chart success and his eldest daughter to solo superstardom, took on a lecturing role at the Texas Southern University School of Communication in Houston last year (09) and he will return to take charge of a weekly class this autumn (10).

He says, "Knowledge and empowerment are two of the greatest gifts one can give.

"The environment at TSU is one of dedication, to excellence and diverse opportunities for its students. I'm honoured to be back to have this opportunity to share my experiences."

Knowles earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1974. In 2008, he was honoured with a Doctor of Humane Letters by his alma mater.
