What type of education isrequired to run a entertainment promotion company?

I have a degree in Graphic Design and I want to receive a Bachelor's Degree in a field that will compliment my 1st degree, as well as prepare me with the knowledge to run my own entertainment promotion company. example: We will service to upcoming music artists, models, comedians and provide the marketing and promotion needs for them. Kind of like a one stop shop for album covers, flyers, press release, etc...etc. Would a degree in Marketing or Advertising be most efficient. Actually the school that I was looking at teaches both the curriclum of Advertising and Design. They call it Advertsing Design. So it allows me to use my design sense and apply it to Advertising. But will this really help me with promotions?

Is there a chance of enrolling in a co-op program where you get 'on-the-job' experience at the same time? If not - you may want to work in the industry before starting out on your own. Good Fortune to You!
