Recently, Roc Nation has been on a roll with the launch of many different initatives.
New York Daily News has just reported that Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Brooklyn’s Long Island University have just partnered in order to launch a new school for entertainment management.
This new school is scheduled to open fall of 2021. Programs offered will be undergraduate degrees for music, music technology, production, sports management, and entreprenuership.
CEO of Roc Nation, Desiree Perez stated, “We’re excited that the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment will provide unique insight, knowledge, and experiences for students and introduce the world to the next generation of unmatched talent.”
A portion of students enrolled in the inaugural Roc Nation classes upon launching next fall will receive full-rides based on their financial need and merit.
Long Island University President, Kimberly Cline said, “Our proximity in and around New York City’s epicenter of music and sports clearly positions us to offer unparalleled experiential learning and access to professional opportunities that will launch students to success. We look forward to joining with Roc Nation to offer an unprecedented educational resource that opens up the entertainment and sports world to a new and eager generation.”
