The rap producer, who is married to Alicia Keys, will guide the students at the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music through lectures, mentoring and one-on-one sessions during the upcoming academic year.
He says, "I'm excited to be able to take my many years of experience in the music business and use it as an example to instruct students.
"The invitation is humbling and I'm honoured."
The Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music provides students with professional business and artistic training for success in the music industry.
