From the Boardroom To The Classroom: Diddy To Start School
Ladies and gentlemen, it may soon be time to take notes, class is in session. Music mogul, businessman and entrepreneur, Sean “Diddy” Combs has announced plans of starting a business school in New York, preferably in the Harlem-area. The lucrative businessman broke the news Monday night on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360°, stating:
“It’s more than just about business,” he said. “There’s more that I’m supposed to do, there’s more that I’m gonna do. I want to have an academy that’s known for building leaders. I feel that’s one of the things I can have an impact on. I want to take on more responsibility. I’m still honestly in search of how I can have the most positive effect that I can have.”
Combs who began as an intern at Uptown Records in the early 90’s, worked his way to the top becoming a top executive at the label, producing hits for Mary J. Blige and Jodeci. He soon became one of today’s mainstays in the fashion, music, and media industry, acclaiming an estimated net worth of over $350 million. Combs plans to share his inside knowledge and experiences with aspiring young entrepreneurs who attend his business school.
Combs can include this latest venture to his impressive resume of accomplishments, which include being CEO and founder of Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group, Sean John Clothing, spokesman and brand developer for Ciroc Vodka, restaurant owner of the popular upscale restaurant Justin’s, and various reality TV deals.
With this newest project on his hands, it is clear that Combs abides by his well-known mantra that he, “can’t stop and won’t stop” making his mark in the industry. To get a 101 lesson on Combs’ style, check out our Black History Month Daily Fashion Tribute featuring Combs here.
