Is Hustlers University A Scam? An Opinion Review By A Digital Millionaire

In this post, I'll be taking you through my review of Hustler's University - All variations of Andrew Tate's original training.

Update: Hustlers University closed but has since re-opened, it did however shut down the affiliate program, essentially pulling a rug on the people who promoted the course – Tate says it is in preparation for the 3.0 version of the course, but it seems to be something much deeper than that.

If you’re looking at investing in Hustlers University 2.0 then let me warn you: It’s likely an MLM (Pyramid Scheme) and will take your $50 per month, and transfer it straight into Andrew “Cobra” Tate’s pocket, without giving you any sort of returns what-so-ever.

In this blog post, I hope to show you the who, the why and the what, so you don’t have to waste your money or time any more than you have to.

What Is Hustlers University?

Founded in 2021, Hustlers University was created out of another one of Tate’s membership programs: The War Room. He took members from that community and gave them educator positions in this one.

At it’s heart, it’s a Discord community that claims to be able to teach anyone to make an online business and make money within just days of signing up, utilizing various different “passive income” models.

Who Was It Made For?

The marketing and sales page for Hustlers University claims that it was made for beginners looking to make money online – A claim I’ve seen a thousand times before.

Whilst yes, it’s true that it’s likely most people could learn some sort of business model inside, whether it will be a legitimate, long-term earner is a different question.

Likewise, so is the statement about being able to earn money on day ONE: You will NOT.

Who Is Andrew Tate?

Andrew’s full, real name is “Emory Andrew Tate III“, he was born in America but moved to the UK in his teens. His father, Emory Tate was an American Chess master and kickboxer.

Andrew took on what his father taught him, and won 4 kickboxing world championships, though he said kickboxing never made him any money.

Andrew SAYS his financial success comes from running webcam businesses, casinos and crypto. Although from my research, I can’t find his claimed “14 casinos in Romania” but have managed to find success from his webcam business which was often put into crypto, which saw meteoric growth in the years following.

Andrew’s fame stems from his kickboxing career, appearances on British reality TV shows and dating Jordan Peterson’s daughter.

He’s then used this platforming to grow his audience with the controversial world and business statements that resonate with young, impressionable audiences mostly based on TikTok, Twitch and Discord.

This huge growth, large audience and network of supporters are what gave him the base to make Hustlers University in the first place.

Andrew’s business and life success doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with what is inside this course, which is why it’s weird seeing him teaching business models and online money making skills that he himself doesn’t seemingly have.

Tate is a smart guy, but he won’t be your source of wealth creation, if you buy his training and products, you will just be another one of his.

Andrew Tate Controversy

Before he was shoved down our throats by the short form video algorithms, Tate had already been trying to make a name for himself for many years – Whether it be via MMA, trash British reality TV shows like Big Brother or trolling podcasts with his misogynistic and anti-systemic rants.

If you want to take a full look through his history of making people dislike him, Indy100 did a round-up here.

Who Is Tristan Tate?

The 2nd Tate brother for a reason, Tristan lives in his brother’s shadow and seemingly is one.. A mirror image of what his brother wants the world to perceive him as.

Whilst Andrew has fight titles to his name, Tristan was never as successful as his brother at any of the things he decided to copy him at – Instead, he runs a management company for “models”.

My Hustlers University 1.0 Review

Firstly, Hustlers University 1.0 was an online course, and slightly different to the currently closed versions.

The course was filled with not only basic business and financial errors, but also mainly promotional ways around affiliating the course itself.

This course’s content is kind of irrelevant right now, as there is a 2.0 (and a 3.0 “Upgrade” within) version that has new information.

However, if you want to dive more into why the course is fundamentally flawed, Hasnabi (A Twitch streamer with his own issues) made a video reviewing it here –

Hustlers University 2.0 Review

Firstly, Tate’s audio within this course is terrible.

He starts off by playing theme-tune music into a $50 Amazon microphone, crippling your ears as you’re about to look for ways to make money online with his digital products and sales tactics.

The first 2+ hours of Hustlers University 2.0 has NOTHING to do with business. It’s the same stuff Tai Lopez, OMG Machines and all those others have done in the past with their courses – Fill it with fluff about how the system is against you, how you need to reprogram/deprogram yourself and do emotional mantras every day to summon the beast within.

All of this is a waste of time if someone is looking for ways to make money online. Tate even says it in his promotional videos for the course – You don’t need a logo or a website, you can make money right now likely from the expertise or enthusiasm you already have for something if you put the time in.

That’s why there are successful niche YouTubers, Twitter profiles, Facebook groups, Pinterest accounts and all the other things in the world making $10,000’s per month, if not 6+ figures a month.

Once you’re past the initial training and inside the Discord server, you are greeted with the option of multiple channels where you can find information from other users and more training:

  • Crypto Campus
  • ECommerce Campus
  • Copywriting Campus
  • Stocks
  • Affiliate
  • Freelance

As someone who’s dedicated over half their lives to digital marketing, almost all of the information within the ECommerce, Copywriting, Affiliate and Freelance channels are either outdated or can be found for free from various creators on YouTube, and have seemingly been repurposed by Tate or his “Professors”.

Hustlers University 2.0 Professors

Almost all of the so-called “Professors” within HU2.0 are taken from another one of Andrew’s products that have been out for several years and cost £4,147 (~$5,000) to join – The War Room.

The War Room by Andrew Tate is a Telegram group with various channels, very similar to the Hustlers University Discord but more focused on networking and costs the same as an average 2nd hand car.

I am not personally in the War Room, but I have several people within that have shown me the goings-on of the “networking” group.

It’s mostly filled with self-promotions from desperate 20-something males looking to build a personality when they’re unsure of who they are and what they want to become, so feed off Tate as their inspiration for who they now are and aspire to be in the future.

All of the men I know that are in the War Room that have taken this mentality onboard were not strong, leadership types to begin with and I think therein lies the issue.

Tate is just another person praying on vulnerable minds, and turning perfectly healthy young men that could (And often have!) run legitimate businesses their peers could respect into those that are quite often pimping out their girlfriend’s bodies online for cash they could have made without being a cuck.

Likewise, when reviewing most of the trades made in crypto and stocks from these so-called professors in their fields, you have a LOT of losses over the last few months due to the current economic downturn.

This is quite the opposite of what you want to learn when trying to sustainably make money online and build a network of high-net-worth individuals.

Other Sites Reviews of Hustlers University

There are dozens of other sites reviewing this, but NONE are positive without an affiliate link (Where they will get 50% of your payments to Andrew) trying to get you to click throughout.

I hope this review gives you a completely honest overview of exactly why you should NOT be purchasing Hustlers University, and hopefully, Google doesn’t pick up the sentiment of the other sites being overwhelmingly positive that my negative one gets lost by the algorithm.

The Discord Server

EVERYTHING inside this course (Including the video lessons) is based within one discord server

The HU Discord Server

This is just one more of MANY that have come and gone over the years doing the exact same thing.

To name a few competitors: Wealth Squad, Team Bull, Tai Lopez, Stock VIP, Netz Trades etc

Ironically, whilst Tate claims to hate gamers, Discord was actually invented as a free communication platform for exactly that – It’s not the most ideal place to put educational content, to learn from, or to format your content in.

The chat quickly gets spammed, and overwhelmed and has very little moderation from any of Tate’s employees behind the scenes. Actually, the only moderation I saw at all came from supporters of the channel that had earned an unpaid mod position, which it seemed they actually still had to continue paying their subscription to have the privilege for anyway.

Discord is fantastic for live streaming to specific members, so you have a much more private and intimate communication format with your paying customers.

It’s also more likely that the target demographic that Tate is trying to attract into his audience (Young boys and men) will be intimately familiar with the platform already, and be more inclined to join and contribute to something they’re already actively using.

Each channel is moderated, admin’d and controlled by its own set of “professors” which means there are sub-communities within sub-communities, and ego constantly tends to be on show for everyone else watching to see.

I am not bashing Discord in any way, shape or form, but it feels like anyone wanting to make an educational business/finance platform wouldn’t be choosing it as the primary solution – And as I’ve already said, it makes the training extremely convoluted and all over the place to have it in so many different areas, and by so many different people.

If the server was an addition to the course, instead of where the course is, it’d be a much better place for people to start their education from but unfortunately, it’s a bit of a mess that keeps getting worst as more people join.

Students Results

Yes, a lot of students have gotten results using HU, but the methods they used can be learned on YouTube and are mostly outdated internet marketing or trading style stuff – All of which comes with an abundance of its own risk, which is hardly talked about my Tate or his “professors” inside or in the promotional materials for the course.

Keith’s Winning Trade

Most of the “wins” people post are quick trades of stocks or crypto, which are also highly volatile and not any sort of a long-term business which Tate promises is awaiting inside – It is not.

The sad reality is that the top students are all making money from either being affiliates of the course itself or running “OnlyFans businesses”, aka managing their girlfriend’s accounts.

Likewise, a LOT of the “results” posted are actually from moderators and admins of HU itself who back up Andrew’s “strategies” which are often just rehashed advice from free online tutorials.

Likewise, if you actually wanted to learn some of these skills there are MUCH better courses out there on the individual business model from professionals who have made it do so.

A perfect example would be Cold Email Mastery instead of using Andrew’s training which is a bad ripoff of it.

At the end of the day, Tate claims there are multiple multi-millionaire students but I couldn’t find a single legitimate one during my research.

As a student trying to learn how to make money online, there are many legitimate ways to build towards having a passive income online and financial freedom. Still, unfortunately, I do not think you will find it inside any of these Discord channels.

The Pricing

The pricing is actually $49.99/Month and that doesn’t include additional taxes if applicable, but Tate likes to state “It’s only $50/month brokies” when actually, in reality, that is a decent chunk of money – Especially for young men who are looking to start an online business.

$50/Mo or $600/Year could pay for a domain name, hosting, Google Drive, Grammarly Premium and a few other things that would actually go towards setting up a real online business.

In my personal opinion, I would put the value more at the price of $7 or $9 per month, if that, as most of the course information can be found in free guides that often cover the subject in much more depth.

I do not think it is a worthwhile investment, I don’t think it’s a get-rich-quick scheme either but I disagree with many of the claims promoting the course and inside of it.

And yes, you will require money to get almost all of the business ideas inside off the ground.

Update: There was an announcement that the subscription pricing will be increasing before 2023 –

An Announcement About A Price Increase For HU

I’d expect it to at least increase to $75, if not outright double… Just so Tate can gauge even more money from his fans, as he knows the window he currently has of fame and fortune will slowly dwindle away.

Discount or Coupon Code

I’ve scoured the internet trying to find some sort of offer, but there doesn’t even seem to be a place to enter a code when you checkout.

So you have to pay for it all, or try and find a leak online, as there are a LOT.

No Refund Policy

There is a STRICT no refund policy in place, the only way to get your money back is via a chargeback.

Should You Join Hustlers University?

The short answer is: No.

It’s highly unlikely you’ll make your money back, and most of the business models take months to setup and are based on out-of-date or wrong information.

That means you’ll usually be spending far more than the $50 claimed, as it’s a monthly subscription, not a one-time fee.

There is plenty of FREE coaching out there, that is up to date by people actually working in these industries. For example, if you found this post from Google then it’s because I used SEO which is my own profession and I have an eBook here on how you can do the same, at NO cost.

And almost all of those that are making money from HU are those actively promoting it themselves to others, rather than from the models inside the course.

Likewise, stock and crypto trading is HIGHLY volatile and downright dangerous (And often illegal) to not preface non-financial advice as such, I haven’t seen any attempts to do so within those channels.

It’s more of a hustler university, in the sense that they’ll just hustle you.

Affiliate Program

It is now since closed, but there used to be a 50% recurring commission affiliate program open for the first 5,000 students to utilize to make money online.

This is by far the most successful aspect of the course, and also the part that makes it a pyramid scheme.

I am sure as a direct result of this program there are many wealthy affiliates now.

He’s also made money with some crypto trading like his CAKE farming plays, but the majority of his money currently comes from membership sales of his courses and not any sort of legitimate business ventures.

Tate claims to have casinos in Romania, but there’s only ever been one video surfacing online of a “casino” which was actually just a converted shop that had slot machines inside – Something that’d likely cost under a hundred thousand euros to get setup in a country like Romania.

Rate This Product


I do NOT recommend this product. The training inside is available throughout the internet, and the majority of members are just trying to pitch you or make money being an affiliate for the course itself – aka, a pyramid scheme.

There is are much better business leaders (Especially in the digital landscape) that can give you a much more thorough education from active experience doing them, as Tate has seemingly no experience in most of the fields he is claiming to teach and neither do his “hand-chosen” professors, who are just taken from another one of his membership products.
