Your favorite model, Tyra Banks, is set to teach a MBA class at Stanford University, called, Project You: Building and Extending your Personal Brand. Since Banks has had over 20 seasons of America’s Next Top Model, a show she created, her own talk show, a cosmetic line, and many other countless business ventures, she may be more than qualified to teach a class on building a brand.
The course is only two weeks long, however, it will helps students learn how to market themselves using forms of both old and new media. Banks said she will allow students to use their cell phones in class, to tweet something she said during the lecture.
Banks tweeted, “I’m beyond excited to teach. It’s in my blood and I can’t wait to meet my students.”
