Get a degree from Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre today.

The two music moguls have started their own school at the University of Southern California. The 4-year program will accept a mere 30 students a year and will offer students a degree in Bachelors of Science in the Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.

On the Iovine-Young School homepage, Jimmy and Dr. Dre explain the school’s vision:

With a visionary gift from music-industry leaders Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young, the University of Southern California is establishing a new academy to inspire innovative, entrepreneurial thought in business, design, marketing and the arts.

Conceived as a collaborative environment that brings multidisciplinary students, instructors and professional mentors together, the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation will be a transformational presence on one of the nation’s most dynamic university campuses.

The focus is on invention and conceptual thinking, drawing on the talents and influences of leaders from across industries to empower the next generation of disruptive inventors and professional thought leaders across a multitude of global industries.

Congrats to Dr. Dre. He’s come a long way from his N.W.A. days. If you’re interested in applying, click here.
