Donald Trump Opens Online University

He’s pretty much done it all, but up until now Donald Trump has been noticably absent from the internet, in any major way. Today that all changed with the launch of Trump University.

“In today’s hyper-competitive business climate, the need for the highest quality education has become more crucial than ever,” Trump said. “But people are looking beyond the traditional business education model, which involves hours in the classroom and relies primarily on book learning.”

The for-profit university will not offer degrees or grades. Courses will cost $300 and will take one to two weeks to complete. Trump said longer courses of two to three months would be offered in the future. [quoted from yahoo news]

It’s pretty much what you would expect from Trump, good quality with a twist of over-the-top bravado. Here’s the first line of my sign up letter:

Thank you for registering to become a member of Trump University. Smart move!

So, yes I did  sign up, here’s the member promises:

Join today to receive:
• Exclusive reports
• Full access tomember-only content
• Free Inside Trump Tower newsletter
• Special offers

And actually there is a lot of high quality free content in there, including audio [podcasts] from some of Trump’s buddies, such as Ivan Seidenberg Chairman and CEO of Verizon and Don Sexton Professor of Business at Columbia University.

But my favorite membership perk is the “Ask Trump” section. Of course, I had to ask a question and of course they do mention that The Donald may not answer every question, but the answers I did see were excellent and definitely had me convinced that they were authentic.

Overall, I have to admit that my first though was “Ooohh Nooo” when I saw the press release for TrumpU, but they one me over, I’ll definitely add it to my favorites and be downloading those mp3 audios to soak up a little billionaire wisdom.

    I read at another website a guy saying that if he were at a job interview and it was between himself and a guy with a certificate from Trump University, he would pray to all the dieties and that he would be hired. He of course, having a University degree. My take is, that alot of people, including myself, as a successful businessowner, would take these courses to improve our businesses and success. We wouldn’t want to interview and be hired as an employee somewhere else. Just my take! Warmest Regards, Rd. Chrysostomos
