The 2nd Corporate Partner firm announced for the 2008 Summer Business Institute at Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of Management is the William Morris Agency. We're delighted to have this outstanding company a part of Accelerator 2008.
The William Morris team has provided an opportunity for participants to get an understanding of the "business" of managing a talent (sports and entertainment). Accelerator teams will compete to create the best marketing and launch campaign for a particular talent - what better group to help design such a launch than about 100 college students! Expect this particular project to be a combination of extreme learning, fun, an overall "wow" experience (in a manner that only William Morris Agency can do).
