Dr. Dre and former Interscope records boss Jimmy Iovine have made a lot of money together.
Recently selling their Beats By Dre shares to Apple and making billions in the process, Dre and his partner have used some of that money to help put others in a position to possibly achieve the success they’ve already attained. The two recently founded the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation at the University of Southern California. The school was founded on a $70 million endowment given to them by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine last year.
The program accepts around 25-30 students per year and its inaugural class is already halfway through the first semester. Courses offered at the college include computer science, audio production and graphic design, among others. More information is available via the college’s website.
