The supermodel turned mogul will teach MBA students about personal branding.
Model, mogul, and New York Times best-selling author, Tyra Banks has pretty much done it all and now she’s adding professor to her long list of achievements.
Banks will be a guest lecturer at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business in May, co-teaching 25 MBA students how to shape their personal brand. The model mogul will teach students how to use traditional and social media to their advantage and how to handle the ups and downs of business. Later, students will present their personal brands through three platforms: YouTube, Facebook Live, and local television.

This isn’t the first time Banks has set foot in one of America’s top universities. In 2011, she enrolled in a nine-week business program at Harvard, where she earned a certificate after completing the Executive Education Training Program. Banks will also continue to dominate the world of business serving as a mentor in a new Shark Tank style show called Funded.
Students better come prepared for the model’s class because she won’t be playing around. Banks told the Wall Street Journal, “If I see somebody not paying attention, I’m gonna call on them.”
