As you may or may not know August 29th was thee great Michael Jackson’s birthday. My wonderful alma mater, Clark Atlanta University, has shown their respect to the musical pioneer by adding a MBA course entitled Michael Jackson: The Business of Music. The purpose of the course is to show the process to his legendary success. It will focus on deals, negotiations, film projects, real estate, and merchandising.
The instructor of the course is Mr. James Walker, an author and noted entertainment attorney. Walker has worked with powerful clients such as Shirley Ceasar, Bobby Jones, Jamie Foxx, Donald Lawrence, and many others. Walker says, “The goal is to help students who have an interest or future desire to work in the entertainment industry whether as artist, attorney, business manager, accountant or other.”
The course has created a lot of buzz! I’m sure this is one of those classes that is going to fill up pretty fast!
