The one and only, Big Sean returns. Today the wordsmith is back, giving back to the youth with a brand new learning platform through the Sean Anderson Foundation. Today we get a look at “Mogul Prep”, a blended educational curriculum that can be utilized by thousands of middle and high school students and educators as an immersive learning experience designed to use careers in the entertainment industry as a gateway for students to discover and explore career pathways in any industry. After quite a successful pilot program launched back in November of 2015 in Detroit the Mogul Prep course content was developed in partnership with entertainment industry professionals and seasoned curriculum authors.
The program brings students and top industry leaders together to provide insight into the hard and soft skills needed. Big Sean and the Sean Anderson Foundation are taking the show on the road with an experiential Tour aligning with the I Decided tour dates in four cities across US. At each stop Sean and a team of industry leaders will provide students experiential opportunities from the Mogul Prep curriculum, conduct industry panel discussions focused on exploring what it means to be a Mogul, and expose students to the ins and outs of various music industry careers. Big Sean spoke about the program, stating: “I am grateful to be able to provide an educational program that today’s students can easily relate to. Mogul Prep is relevant and real world. I hope students enjoy Mogul Prep, and most importantly, I hope it helps them reach the success that they are meant for.” Check out more about the program right here, right now and speak your thoughts on it after the jump.
