Would you trust a college degree issued by Wired Magazine or Architectural Digest? Maybe not, but that's not stopping some colleges from teaming up with Condé Nast to offer degree programs, even Masters'. I can see it now - an MBA from the Vanity Fair déCollage. "Condé Nast writers and editors will contribute subject matter expertise and the publisher will provide some financial backing to the partnerships." I imagine magazine writers will be cheaper to hire than professors, and easier to replace.
