Forget English, engineering, or pre-med. Now, you can major in social media stardom. The Yiwu Industrial and Commercial College in China offers an associate program aimed at turning regular people into social media influencers.
Classes are offered in applying makeup, performing on camera and learning luxury brands as well as “aesthetic cultivation” and “fashion sensitivity."
A tuition price isn't being reported, but YWICC has been offering the program since 2015. It may seem crazy, but Zhang Dayi, a fashion entrepreneur/vlogger, earned $46-million in 2016- more than China’s top actresses.
