Yo Gotti has announced that he’ll be enrolling in college — and the college is quite prestigious.
The Memphis native announced that he’ll be taking the Corporate Valuation course at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
The rapper, who’s enrolled in the course as of Tuesday (December 5), will be taking the class on a weekly basis. The course description says that Yo Gotti will learn “issues and analytical tools relevant for valuing projects, divisions, and corporations. Theories of discounted cash flow valuation (DCF) and relative valuation using market multiples. Theories of practice to value different projects, including IPO, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, and private firms. Exploration of how real options affect investment decisions and how they can be identified and valued.”
He also posted some photos of himself attending the course at UCLA on his Instagram page, which you can check out below.
Yo Gotti isn’t the only rapper who’s giving things the old college try.
Back in February, it was revealed that Kodak Black was now a student at ASU after getting his GED while behind bars. While he vowed to “apply” himself at the school, Yak believed the professors could learn a thing or two from him.
“Arizona beennn one of my states fun fact: I’m really enrolled in ASU college after getting my GED in jail I’m jus in love wit applying myself although money so long I can teach the school something,” Kodak wrote on his Instagram Stories at the time.
He added: “Anywayssss yea its lit this week ‘AZ’ Super Bowl week I’m in my mood I’m home in my comfort zone reallll comfy.”
And in August, it was announced that Rick Ross’s life and career will be studied at Georgia State’s College of Law during the Fall 2023 semester as part of its “Legal Life Of…” series.
Drawing on the rapper’s successful music career and business empire, concepts such as creating contracts and managing clients are just some of the things that will be taught in the course.
The course was created by Professor Mo Ivory, who is the director of Georgia State’s Entertainment, Sports and Media Law Initiative. As an avid Hip Hop fan, she felt it was necessary to highlight Rick Ross for the contributions he’s made to the rap game.
“As a lover of rap music, Hip Hop culture and in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop, I could not think of a better time to study the career of a visionary like Rick Ross,” Professor Ivory said.
“When I began my research on Ross, I realized early on that my students would learn about a businessman who turned his love of music into an empire that includes massive real estate holdings, food and beverage franchises, investments in the car and bike industry, literary works and corporate equity ownership.”
