For 13,000 dollars, you can earn a degree in influencing

The online university eCampus, is throwing more light on digital marketing with its new, three-year program in social media influencing.

According to Richard Edelman — CEO of Edelman, a public relations firm — influencers are “much, much more powerful — six times more powerful — than celebrities.” So yes, becoming truly influential is considered a serious career path.

The aim of the degree is to “fill the current educational gap” and to help students gain the technical skills needed to pursue a career as an influencer.

The eCampus influencer course will have classes in fashion psychology, semiotics and the philosophy of language, TV history, intercultural communication and information technology, among others.

All for a decent $13,000 in total.

Cristiano Ronaldo is paying for 36 students

Maurizio Pasquetti, head of marketing at eCampus, drew a line between being an influencer, and influencer marketing.

He said, “Many people have misinterpreted the fact that trying to be an influencer and knowing how to work with influencer marketing and personal branding are not the same thing”

“There is specific and technical knowledge that you need to master.”

And true to their word, the university is working with biggest one in the game. Juventus soccer icon, Cristiano Ronaldo, is an advocate for the program.

He has the most following on Instagram — 188 million — and reportedly makes more money off Instagram than he does on the pitch!

As part of his commitment, the star is pledging to foot the cost of 36 student grants.

The public debate so far

The idea of an official influencer course, however, does not sit too well with people. While some people think being one is not a real profession, others think the price tag is too hefty.

“Basically paying to learn how to appear behind a screen,” one person wrote.


Nevertheless, many others have had nothing but praise for the program. Also, eCampus aims to enroll 500 students for the influencer course.
