A quarter century before her promotion to ­executive vp human resources at Warner Music Group (WMG), Masha Osherova was on the other side of the world, working toward something much different: a master’s degree in quantum mechanics from St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia. “The idea was that I would eventually win the Nobel Prize,” she says with a laugh, sitting in her brightly lit office at Warner Music Group’s New York headquarters. But a steep decline in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) funding from the Soviet Union at the end of the Cold War lowered career prospects in those fields, and Osherova was forced to look elsewhere for job opportunities. Armed with few credentials aside from fluency in English — still valuable in Russia —...
