Roc Nation entertainment company is working with Long Island University in Brooklyn to launch the Roc Nation School of Art, Sports & Entertainment.

Earlier this week it was announced that the rap star marked his first foray into higher education.

The program at New York University will deliver undergraduate degrees in music, music technology, entrepreneurship, production and sports management – all to build prospects for emerging creatives and entrepreneurial minds.

Roc Nation came into being in 2008 and has rapidly developed itself as a major entertainment and sports enterprise.

The university will begin to accept applications in this coming fall, for courses that will open in Fall 2021. This has also been announced that a quarter of incoming students will receive the Roc Nation Hope Scholarship.
