    Hamburger University

    Hamburger University was founded in 1961, at a McDonald's restaurant in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. In the early 1960s, the first students were to complete strictly required courses such as chemistry, marketing, and cooking so when they graduate, they would be able to create formulas to increase the profit of the company. Many of those with a "McDegree" would get job offerings in a lab so they could invent new ways to enhance the food in the cheapest way. After several years of working in the lab, students would usually pursue a "McMaster" degree since this degree would allow them to fulfill requirements for any possible managing position available in the corporation. To date, no one has yet received a "McPhD". Class sizes today are over 200 students per class on average.

    But there is a real interesting side to this:
