I'd like to get a business diploma to beef up my CV. It would also benefit me for the prestige and IRL confidence gain.

I'm wondering how viable is this?

And I might as well make it into a real thing by creating a 6-semester course and monetize this project by enrolling students for a fee, maybe hire some teachers for Zoom classes etc...

I'm wondering about the legal requirements for a project like this? Do the laws differ depending on the country the school is based in? What are the laws for this in your own country?

I would still like to hear your opinions about other facets of the project, like:

How to best make the diploma I give myself seem legit (which it would be, kinda, since I am actually IM and not giving myself an astrophysics diploma!)

How far will people go to check this credential if I apply to a job with it?

Can you share stories or news relating to this?

Do you know other people who have attempted this?
 
bosses don't check if your diplomas are right or no - if it's in your cv then it's good
 
If it ain't YMYL niche, throw that piece of paper away. Focus on populating the internet with spam if you want clients and jobs. Simple as that. You can create fake people, fake company, fake everything. Nobody gives a fck. The world doesn't care about you and the older you are, the more you realize that. And people lie, manipulate more than you think.

Just had a stupid fcker DM me asking for free work. I sent it to him, he criticized it. It was fcking cheap and well done. He made 6 typos in 3 sentences and asked me for a revision before signing an agreement. Instant block. He looked good on the photos though. Moral of the story is that people don't give a damn about your education as long as you can be okay with them. And your looks are not relevant that much. Just have a nice photo.

They don't do any checks. They check for experience and portfolio only.

You are smart. I know a guy who gave himself 2 diplomas after building 2 websites. Not ethical but... :rolleyes:
 
You are a legend
I don't know what you mean. You really liked the idea?

You want to create a fake school to give yourself a diploma to boost your confidence? I must be missing something here :D
In a nutshell, yes. Long answer is that we all know for a fact that a diploma in a niche like finance, law or science is worth more than a degree in something like humanities or gender studies.

Clearly having a coveted credential is that it will open more doors and increase your social value, effectively boosting your confidence as a side-effect.

It's a very simple thing to understand.

Imagine being in a situation where everyone in the conversation is telling about their great credentials. How would someone feel when it's your turn to speak and you have to tell everyone about your F-Class degree? Like this probably:

I'm saying it's possible to take action and solve this issue.

All things aside, if you do end up doing it, I wouldn't mind a free diploma for my CV as well :p
I'll ping you when I open it.

Yeah, what I was explaining to Sartre.

If it's YMYL, that piece of paper is actually pretty valuable, even for bonus social proof points at least.

This is what I wanted when I asked about similar stories!

Give us all the details Will, and don't leave anything out!

P.S: Well I think it's ethically valid if I need to go through all the courses in the curiculum when building it, along with the fact that I'm an internet marketer myself, and not in a completely different niche like oceanography or astronomy.
 
If such a thing is possible, we can open all kinds of sites and have many diplomas.

You are hanging out with the wrong crowd if they are making credentials a big deal.

It's very possible to make such a site.

If you give yourself an astronomy credentials, then you can be called out pretty easily if someone asks you if Orion is a star, a constellation or whataver and you have no clue.

For science and maybe law fields, there's probably some governing body that keeps tracks of names that belong, and if yours isn't there then you're faking.

With Internet Marketing, it's hard to call you out if you don't know a term or some acronym, because the field is changing constantly, and I don't think there is going to be name tracking because of all the tens of thousands of privately owned schools out there.

I just wonder if you have to contact some sort of organization when making such a school to enroll real students to be working legally, or if it's a 100% personal initiative, if you're not in the US.

It's not about them. It's about me.

I want to be the main character, and have the credential/paper to back it up.

BTB I get what you're saying, but this is not some deep and wisdom filled story about the vanity of materialism.

This is a raw and primal flick of a 20-30 yrs old who wants to be the heavyweight champ, leaving nothing to chance and having the best attributes at everything, making it seem like God has favored you personally by maxing your stats at everything. And when you're a part of a conversation, all your detractors are going to be Wojak crying while wearing a face mask.

He created 2 websites. He named it after a university which is recognised in the country. He created two shitty courses inside and made it look like it delivered "masters degree" in digital marketing and digital psychology online which can be passed in two years. Each. He created these courses and added these 2 to his cv. So he had 2 masters degree on his cv for recruitment. No idea if the guy found a job at the end but I am sure his resume looked better with 2 masters degree :D
