JPMorgan Chase Partners With Roc Nation to Offer Financial Health Course To Students at Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment

Roc Nation has partnered with JPMorgan Chase to bring an exclusive financial health course to the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment at Long Island University (LIU). The course will be taking place for the 2023-24 academic year.

The partnership will aim to help nearly 150 students have strong money management skills and build a strong financial future. 

“It’s absolutely vital that we equip our students with a versatile array of tools and resources to thrive both inside and outside the classroom,” Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez said in a written statement. “With the addition of JPMorgan Chase’s financial health course, students will be poised to make stronger and more informed financial decisions in a way that can profoundly shape the trajectory of their lives and careers.” 

JPMorgan Chase will also assist the University’s Hope Scholarship program by providing $115,000. The initiative will go to help support high-achieving students who are in need of financial help. The company provides a tuition-free education for 25 percent of incoming students annually.  

“At JPMorgan Chase, we’re proud to partner with LIU’s Roc Nation School, breaking down financial barriers for college students in Brooklyn. Together, we’re providing the essential resources and support our future leaders need to shape their career and financial futures,” said Diedra Porché, managing director, and head of Community Banking and Development, Chase. 

The school’s first-ever financial health class will earn students three credits for the 16-week course at LIU’s Brooklyn campus. It will include a series of workshops on topics ranging from money management to credit building to homebuying and fraud/scam prevention. Special visitors will appear as guest speakers, including UCLA football standout Chase Griffin, New York Giants player Victor Cruz, and JPMorgan Chase leadership. The esteemed guests will share their insights and guidance for academic, career, and personal success.

JPMorgan Chase’s five Brooklyn-based community managers, who work and focus on neighborhoods in Crown Heights, Kings Highway, Williamsburg, Borough Park, and Flatbush will lead the financial health workshops. The team is part of the firm’s $30 billion Racial Equity Commitment to drive inclusive economic growth in Brooklyn and around the country.  

There are also planned financial health events for participants at the Chase Community Center in Harlem.  

The Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment, which opened its doors in 2020, helps get students ready for entrepreneurship, a career in the music industry, sports business, management, and more.
