The University of Potsdam is doing its part to ensure that its budding IT students succeed both in their work lives and their private lives; a new course began today in the art of flirting.

The innovative social skills course at the University of Potsdam will be taught by Philip von Senftleben, an author and radio presenter. Von Senftleben described his position to Reuters as showing his students how to "get someone else's heart beating fast while yours stays calm."

Besides teaching University of Potsdam's IT students how to flirt, Von Senftleben will also cover stress management, body language, public speaking, and presentation skills.
