First she taught us how to smize, and now she’ll be teaching us how to handle our business.
Model mogul Tyra Banks is set to teach a course on branding at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
[…]the former Victoria’s Secret model will co-teach a course on creating and maintaining a personal brand at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. She’ll instruct some 25 MBA students on how to use social and traditional media to communicate their strengths and how to endure the ups and downs of being a business leader.
Students of the class will ultimately share their “honed personal brand” through three platforms—Facebook Live, local television, and YouTube—in an effort to jump-start their personal brand extension, according to the course description for Project You: Building and Extending Your Personal Brand. Her co-instructor will be management professor Allison Kluger, who previously worked as a producer for The View and Good Morning America.
This isn’t Banks’ first brush with academia, in 2012 she completed an executive education program at Harvard Business School.
