WMG Celebrates Collaboration With Culture Creators With HBCU Immersion Program
Warner Music Group just wrapped up their inaugural WMG HBCU Immersion Program in collaboration with Culture Creators.
The program concluded last month (April) with 32 students accepted from over 150 applications. The initiative offers a new path for talented young individuals by providing an insightful, immersive Culture Creators curriculum encompassing five state-of-the-art learning modules: A&R, Marketing, Data Science, Business Development, and Administration & Licensing.
Students participated in weekly live virtual sessions, interactive learning activities, and guest speaker panels.
Once students complete the program,they will have the opportunity to apply for a paid position within Warner Music Group’s Summer Emerging Talent Associate Program, allowing them the chance to utilize the knowledge they acquired and gain hands-on experience across Atlantic Records, Warner Records, Warner Music Nashville, Rhino, Warner Chappell, and WMX.
Housing will also be provided for students to either New York City, Los Angeles, or Nashville if chosen for the paid internship.
