Linda Bloss-Baum is exiting her post of Sr. VP of Government Relations and Public Policy at SoundExchange in Washington, D.C., and is joining the Kogod School of Business at American University.
Bloss-Baum will serve as Assistant Program Director in the Business and Entertainment Program at the university and teach two undergraduate courses as a full-time faculty member, including Protection of the Creative Class in the Digital Age and Introduction to the Entertainment Industry. She joined the Kogod School of Business in 2013 as an adjunct professor, and received AU’s Adjunct Professor of the Year award in 2018.
“We are thrilled to announce that Linda Bloss-Baum will be joining us at the Business and Entertainment Program,” says John Simson, BAE Program Director at the Kogod School of Business. “She is the perfect fit for this unique program.”
In March, Bloss-Baum led a delegation of students to the SXSW conference in Austin for a week-long course in networking and professionalism in the entertainment industries. She has held several senior positions in public policy and government affairs, including at Time Warner, Inc., Warner Music Group and NBC Universal/Universal Music Group.
“It is such an honor to return to my alma mater as a full-time faculty member and assistant program director to teach and mentor the next generation of leaders in the entertainment industry,” says Bloss-Baum. “The Business and Entertainment Program at Kogod has grown rapidly over the past decade. I look forward to working with John Simson and the Kogod community to foster future growth and opportunities for the program’s exemplary students in the years to come.”
