    Not really. It's the same as people who goes to University to learn Business Management because that will make them better at doing business. WTF pls? You don't learn business through books. You learn business through practice/real life. Great to have theory, but theory can never be compared to real life situation. A theory cannot describe emotions or thoughts.

    You can however learn marketing at uni. Same sh*t applies to real life tbh. :)

    actually, there are internet marketing degrees at certain university's. just gotta look for the program.
    they usually are more focused on the business models of inernet businesses.
    basically they show you how the guru's do it.
    university's in california have the degree
    the best would probably be fullsail in orlando. thats where all the good dj's go
    you can check out their syllabus online.

    but hey, why would any good IM'er teach a class when he could be out there making millions. AND good IM'ers, much like any profession they teach at fullsail...make them selves.

    here is what you need to study and be good at if you want to be successful at IM :

    Psychology
    Philosophy

    I think that is it. You need to understand what makes people tick and how their mind works. And you need to have good thinking skills.

    Every other skill is outsourcable in IM, but these skills are essential..

    yea i never said university's were good.
    i agree with enrikole.

    psych
    philosophy
    marketing
    and business

    are definately your best bets..

    go for a marketing degree and get those other classes. most university's require you to take them.
    or you can just sign up for classes at a local CC and learn something with alot of time commitment.

    i currently am a computer science major....its useless in relation to IM
