However, in order to be an entertainment or talent agent you need to also have some business knowledge. In this role, you will be representing professional writers, actors, artists, performers, athletes, and/or musicians.

“But are Harvard and Stanford losing their stranglehold on major startup funding? Two years ago they accounted for 71 of the 100 companies on the Poets & Quants ranking – this year they have 48 of the top 100. Wharton, Columbia and Kellogg are all on the rise, with 31 companies between them.”
