Get Your College Degree In MLM?


That’s right, Bethany College, where 84% of students graduate with an average of $22,699 in student loans, is now offering students a chance to spend four years learning how to succeed as an Amway distributor.

For those who don’t know about network, or “multilevel” marketing, it’s a business structure in which salespeople are compensated partly based on how many other salespeople they can recruit. And it’s controversial because the structures resemble illegal pyramid schemes – a stigma the Bethany program acknowledges and apparently seeks to change.

“Entrepreneurs have not been taught how to correctly use network marketing,” said Robert Carlson, the chair of the program, in a statement. “This has led to many using unethical, unsustainable, and nonproductive network marketing business models. We want to fill the education gap and teach students how to use the foundations of servant leadership to successfully and honorably operate a network marketing business.”
